I just found out that the YMCA is unable to begin programming on Tuesday, September 4th due to the new CPS Background Check Process. This is a new process which requires all vendors, parents, outside groups that are servicing students on CPS property to complete a background check process if working directly with students for extended periods of time. The YMCA has submitted all background checks and fingerprints, but are waiting on CPS to provide clearance to begin.
The YMCA is hoping to have programming up and running on Wednesday, but cannot begin until everything is cleared.
I do not want families that were anticipating childcare through the YMCA to be inconvenienced by this and am in the process of creating a plan to support those who registered through the Lakeview YMCA by keeping Peirce staff onsite during the pre-arranged YMCA hours.
If you have already registered for before and/or aftercare with the YMCA, please complete this form so that I have an idea of need.
Before care programming runs from 7:00am - 8:00am and after care programming runs from 3:00pm - 6:00pm.
Before Care Programming
Families will drop students off for before care programming in the fieldhouse between 7:00am and 8:00am.
After Care Programming
Students will be in the main building of the school from 3:00 - 6:00pm. Come to the main entrance, door#1 to pick students up between 3:00pm and 6:00pm.
CPS provides a free snack for students, however, you are welcome to send your own.
Reach out with any questions - the YMCA will resume programming once everything is cleared.
