The After School Care Program will be moving to the YMCA! Helmsburg Elementary will no longer have After School Care in the building for grades PK-4. Grades K-6 will now go to the YMCA! PK students will not have After School Care at Helmsburg or at the YMCA. Students in grades K-4 will ride the shuttle bus after school to the YMCA. The cost will be $5 per day for those on regular lunch and $4 for those on free/reduced lunch. Students will enjoy the benefits of the YMCA such as rock wall climbing, basketball, swimming, various games, and study time. A representative of the YMCA will be at Open House on Monday August 7, 2017 from 5-6 p.m. to help answer questions and with registration! We look forward to this awesome partnership!
