From the New Haven Unified School District
Registration for Kids First, the New Haven Unified School District’s fee-based program that provides before- and after-school care for elementary school students, will be held Thursday, Aug. 16. Registration will be from 1 to 7 p.m. at the former Cabello Elementary School site, 4500 Cabello St., Union City.
Kids First operates from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m, at all seven New Haven elementary schools and from 2:05 to 6:20 p.m. at Alvarado, Eastin, Hillview Crest, Kitayama and Pioneer elementaries. With the advent of the Union City Kids’ Zone, the recipient of a federal grant to provide after-school intervention services at Emanuele and Searles elementaries, the afternoon session at those sites will be from 2:05 to 5:05 p.m.
Families of children eligible for the Kids’ Zone intervention program will be receiving a letter from their school site offering placement in the program.
At Eastin, where kindergartners are on half-day schedules, Kids First care is available for morning kindergartners starting at 1120 a.m. At this time, it is the District’s intention also to offer Kids First for Emanuele kindergartners released at 11:20 a.m., pending sufficient enrollment.
