School Year 2020-2021
What is Cubs Care? Cubs Care is an after school care program where children will have the opportunity to do e-learning, finish homework, eat a lunch and snack, play games, stretch their muscles on the playground and have a great time with their friends. The instructor will facilitate and help with e-learning and will plan fun activities for your child to enjoy every day, all at the safe environment of Joseph Sears School.

Experience a new fun activity every day at the safe environment of the Joseph Sears School.
No School Days
We can unfortunately not offer Cubs Care when school is not in session.
– October 12th (Columbus Day)
– November 3rd (Election Day)
Children must be registered for the entire session and for the full day – unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate choosing specific days of the week to attend or early pick-ups.
Each grade will be grouped in a “bubble”.
Each bubble will be limited to 10 children with 1 teacher.
We will require a minimum of 6 participants per Grade Level to offer Cubs Care for that specific Group.
These bubbles will NOT interact and will be assigned to a designated classroom or space which will be used for the entire session.
There will be opportunities for each bubble to have outside play time.
The daily schedule would have the teacher helping the children with their e-learning from 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm.
After 3:30 pm, each teacher will have their individual plans and activities until 5:30 pm.
Cubs Care will align with the school and follow the same procedure for dismissal.
Cubs Care will not be available during days when school is not in session.
Parents are responsible for sending their child to school with a packed lunch, drink and a snack everyday.
Park District Staff will follow the same COVID-19 guidelines as the school has for a student or teacher testing positive.
