LWSRA After School Care
LWSRA is now offering After School Care! Check out the information below on how this new program will work as well as some answers to frequently asked questions.
Who is this available to?
Anyone 4 years old - 21 years of age that is still enrolled in school.
What time can my child be dropped off to LWSRA? What time is the last pickup?
Care will begin no earlier than 2:00pm. LWSRA does not offer half day options due to school districtís varying schedules. Last pick up will be at 6:30pm. All registrants must be picked up from the LWSRC by this time or late pick-up fees will be assessed.
LWSRC is my childís drop-off location. What if I am late picking them up?
On days an individual is not registered but LWSRA staff accepts them off the bus, there will be a $10 fee. An additional $10 fee will be assessed for every 15 minutes thereafter that the individual is under LWSRA supervision.
How do we set up transportation?
Transportation for your child needs to be set up through your childís school district. Contact your transportation company to change the drop off location to: LWSRC, 1900 Heather Glen Dr., New Lenox, IL 60451. LWSRA does not provide transportation services. IMPORTANT NOTE: Different school districts have different policies on drop off locations and schedule variations. PACE transportation may be an alternate option. Please contact Melissa Jensen with any questions or for clarification.
How do I sign up?
To register, please visit www.lwsra.org to download the monthly registration page. Turn in a registration prior to the month starting with the days you want your child to attend After School Care. Changes or additional days requested for the current month must be approved by the After School Coordinator.
How do I pay?
The cost is currently set at $20 per day. You may choose which days you want to attend. You may pay up front for the entire month or you may pay one week in advance (by Thursday the week before). A late fee of $25 will be assessed if not received by 6:30pm on the THURSDAY of the previous week. This deadline ensures time for us to adequately schedule staff based on the number of attendees. Late registrations must receive prior approval.
Do you provide a snack?
Parents have the option to add-on $0.50 a day for a snack or you may pack your own snack.
What forms or paperwork do I need to fill out?
The only form separate from other LWSRA programs is the monthly After School Care Registration Form (see sample). Visit lwsra.org/afterschool to download the form or stop by the LWSRC. All individuals enrolled in After School Care must have a valid Annual Information Form (AIF) on file with LWSRA. If individual is subject to seizures, please complete a seizure form. Permission to dispense medication form is available for anyone needing LWSRA staff to dispense medication during the program.
