In 2021-2022, Morris Jeff Community School will offer a before and after-school program called Explorers for students in Pre-K through 8th grade. As most of you know, we were unable to offer after-school programs last year due to COVID, and we are excited that we have the opportunity to offer them this year.
We will continue our partnership with Young Audiences (YA) to provide teaching artists to come to both our elementary and middle school campuses for enrichment instruction in visual and performing arts. This year we are participating in a grant that YA received to pay for the programming for 1st – 8th grade students at no charge to families. After-school programs will begin promptly after school and run until 5:30 pm, Mondays through Thursdays. Free bus transportation (yellow school bus) will be provided by the school. Buses will depart the elementary school at 5:00 pm, and the middle school at 5:15 pm. If you do not wish for your child to ride the bus home, you must pick up your child by 5:30 pm each day. There will be no after-school program on Fridays.
We will also offer after-school childcare to PreK and K students, staffed by our Morris Jeff employees. The fee for this care is $50 per week, Monday through Thursday. Look for future communication explaining the payment system. The same free bus transportation will be provided per the same schedule as noted above paragraph. There will be no after-school program for Pre-K and K on Fridays.
Both of these after-school programs will begin on August 23 and end on May 19.
Finally, we will also be offering morning care every morning beginning at 7:00 am for students in PreK – 5th grades at the elementary campus. The cost for morning care is $25.00 per week.

The deadline is July 23, 2021.
More information will be sent to PreK, Kindergarten families & Morning Care families.
Morris Jeff Community School Explorers Program does not offer drop-in services. It is imperative that we get an accurate count of the number of students participating in the Explorers program in order to adequately staff our classes.
