CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Park District is now accepting registration for its Extended Time program for the 2013-14 school year. The before- and after-school program provides supervised recreational activities, arts and crafts, movies, field trips, fun with friends and homework. The program also allows children to participate in after-school art classes or sports practices.

All District 47 students in kindergarten through fifth grade are eligible to attend. Openings are available at Glacier Ridge, Canterbury/Coventry, Husmann, Indian Prairie, North, West/South and Woodscreek elementary schools, as well as at Spoerl Park (kindergarten only).  

Parents with changing work schedules can utilize the 10-day Extended Time punch pass at their school site. The passes can be used for regular school days, half days or institute days.  Prices begin at $163 per month. Scholarships and reduced rates are available for those in need, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Extended Time hours are 6:15 to 8:45 a.m., and 3:30 to 6:15 p.m. Kindergarten hours are 6:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., or 11:30 a.m. to 6:15 p.m.
