School-Age Child Care

  • The Latchkey program is now called School-Age Child Care (SACC).

    Due to low enrollment and concerns about bringing in groups of children, the district has decided to close full-day SACC.

    Before- and after-school SACC will be offered while students are attending face-to-face learning in our schools. Please note, any time the district or a school is closed to in-person learning, SACC will also be closed.

     2021/22 enrollment for SACC will begin in August

    Limited spaces will be available at all six elementary schools. Please use the waiting list provided in the registration link if space is not available.

    • Fees are paid in advance. Invoices will be sent every two weeks. Payment of fees is due on or before Thursday of each week for the following week’s care.
    • Parents/legal guardians that do not make their payments by Friday for the following week could lose their spot in SACC. They will be contacted if this situation occurs.
    • If the account is not kept current or is chronically delinquent, we reserve the right to terminate care until full payment is made or to terminate childcare permanently.

    Families with overdue accounts from the 2019-2020 school year must pay the balance in full before current year registration will be accepted. We reserve the right to deny childcare services when payment is delinquent

    COVID-19 Parent Handbook
    The Macomb County Health Department has put together some important information for parents about COVID-19, including how it is spread, how families will be notified should a positive case be reported in one of our schools, and when to keep your student home.
