A snack is provided in the morning before students are released to class and in the afternoon when they arrive from class. Afternoon activities begin after snack time.
For your child to attend the Avon Latchkey Program you must fill out the registration form.
There is a $10, non refundable, registration fee and the cost is $3.00 per hour per child, charged in one-hour increments. Avon Latchkey does not bill. You must prepay by purchasing 20 hours of service for $60. Avon Latchkey will keep track of the hours used and ask that you pay another $60 when your time has run out.
We ask that you pay for your Latchkey time at Latchkey; however, you may also purchase time by sending a check to the main office of your child's school clearly marked for Latchkey.
On the first day of attendance to Latchkey, your child must have a note notifying the school office that your child should report to Latchkey. Once you have signed up and notified the school, your child will not be permitted to ride the bus. Should you not want them to go to Latchkey on a specific day, you must pick them up.
