Daycare offered to students for early-release
With the Eudora schools' first early-release inservice day coming up Wednesday, parents and caregivers can yet again rely on a community after-school program run through the Eudora United Methodist Church.
Volunteer and organizer Heather Wrinkle said response to the program had been ample, with enrollment doubling since the program was started last school year. She said the program ended up with 30 students attending.
The program, for students in first- through fifth-grades, runs from 1:15 to 3:15 p.m. on early-release Wednesdays and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for full-day inservices, when a minimum of 10 students must be enrolled for the day.
The program serves afternoon snacks, but students will have to bring their own lunch for full-day inservices. Housed at the Eudora Community Learning Center building at 10th and Main streets, early-release day activities include arts and crafts and games in the gymnasium with a more structured schedule for full-day inservices.
Students can get to the program by taking the district's shuttle buses that run to the Community Learning Center building.
Cost is $5 per student on half days. For full days, the cost is $20 per student or $15 each for two or more children in the same family.
