    Dear Cass School District 63 Parents,

    We are very excited about our new partnership between Cass School District 63 and Ivy League Kids to provide our kindergarten through 8th grade parents with the option of high quality before and after school child care. For those of you interested, Ivy League Kids is a private organization that will replace our Before and After School Experience (B.A.S.E.) program with high quality care that focuses on fitness, recreation and academic enrichment in a healthy and safe environment. Before and after school activities include sports and recreation, STEM education, arts and crafts, homework help and character building.
    The hours of operation will be morning care starting at 6:30 a.m. and after school care until 6:00 p.m. Parents can create a flexible schedule for their child’s attendance, choosing from one to five days in the morning or afternoon, or using the program on an as-needed basis. The program will be held at Concord Elementary School on all days students are in attendance, including half days. Parents of Cass Junior High students will have the option of their children participating at Concord and we will work with parents to arrange those details.
    Here is information regarding fees for the 2021-22 school year. The program will begin on the first day of the school year on Thursday, August 26. To register for the program, here is the registration portal. Simply fill out the before and after school program registration form online. Please note that each child will need a separate registration packet. Ivy League Kids accepts Illinois Action for Children Child Care Assistance Program.
    If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact the main Ivy League Kids office at 815-464-1265 or email contact@ivyleaguekids.org. Thank you!
