Interested in bringing Before & After Care to DES?
The School Age Care (SAC) program, offered by St. Mary's County Recreation & Parks, is currently offered in 7 different elementary schools and at Hollywood Recreation Center which serves Hollywood Elementary. Each year, we provide an opportunity for citizens to express their interest in a program being offered at a public school location. If you are interested, your feedback is vital to moving forward with beginning a program. Once there is enough interest (at least 15 families), the school will be contacted for space availability to offer a program. If space exists and is permitted for use, registration will open March 1, 2019 for each school location. Registration must meet a minimum registration by July 2019 for a program to operate.
