Program available at the Beebe, Forestdale, and Salemwood Schools*

Before school programs have proven to be a valuable resources to each school, offering enrichment opportunities, homework assistance, and recreation to students in grades K-8 before the school day. In many cases, the program is a safe haven for students who need to be brought to school early because of family work schedules.

The programs at the Beebe and Forestdale Schools start at 7:00 am. Children should arrive no later than 7:10 am to be part of the activities. At the Salemwood School the program starts at 6:45 am and children must be present by 6:55 am. At the end of each program, children are brought to the cafeteria for breakfast.  Children are supervised in the cafeteria.  If children wish to have the school breakfast, they must bring the breakfast fee with them each day or they may bring their own snack.
