Welcome to the REACH Extended Care Program! Bolingbrook Park District operates its extended care before and after school program in cooperation with School District 365U at B.J. Ward, Pioneer, Jonas Salk and Independence Elementary Schools. The program is designed to provide recreational before and after school activities for students in a safe environment.
Our philosophy is to provide a relaxed, protected, home-like atmosphere that stimulates the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development in school children. The Bolingbrook Park District REACH Extended Care Program is open to children in Kindergarten through fifth grade enrolled in the Valley View School District 365U.
The REACH Extended Care Program is offered to give working parents quality before and after school care for their child. Parents can have the peace of mind of knowing exactly where their children are before and after school and that they are receiving quality, supervised care.
If we have no contact from the parent after 6:10 p.m., a responsible party from your emergency form will be contacted to pick the child up.
If there is an emergency and parents need to contact the site supervisor, call the Annerino Community Center at (630) 739-0272.
Program staff has the authority to refuse any child who shows signs of illness. In such cases, staff judgment is final. It is the parent’s responsibility to verify their child’s daily health is adequate for his/her participation in the program before bringing him/her to school. A child who shows signs of illness should be at home for the benefit of all.
If a child becomes ill or injured while on the site, the parent will be notified immediately. Staff will follow the directions stated on the emergency information forms concerning your physician and others who are to be notified if a parent or guardian is unavailable.
If your child is exposed to a communicable disease, you must receive a written statement from a physician detailing the method, amount and a time schedule by which medicine should be taken, plus a written request from the parent asking the staff to assist the student in taking the medication. The medicine must be delivered to the school in the original pharmacy container.
Students are not allowed to bring toys, sporting equipment or pets to the program unless the Park District Supervisor has given permission. Children are discouraged from bringing large amounts of money or valuable items that could be lost, damaged or stolen. Approved items must be clearly labeled. Bolingbrook Park District and the School District are not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.
