Before and After Care Options

As a service to our families, HFCA provides students in three-year-old preschool through grade 8 with quality care and supervision before and after regular school hours. Children can play, read, or complete homework. It is designed to be daycare and not instructional.
The program is located in the lower level in Room 37 and operates only on school days when school is in session and when students are in attendance. It is not available on holidays, staff days, or emergency closings such as snow days. No care is available for students in two-year-old preschool.
The phone number for the CARE room is 847-907-3507. All communication regarding the CARE program should be sent to the CARE Director. ([email protected])
