Summer Field Trip Information

Youth plan the summer field trips within the first week of summer programming. All FLEX calendars will be released Wednesday, June 20th.

Shuttle & Transportation Information
A daily shuttle to Central Middle School will be provided to families who would like to drop their 5th-8th graders off at elementary Extended Day sites. Families choosing to access this shuttle should choose this option when registering in the Eleyo system. Parents will be able to sign their older youth in at the elementary schools, and those staff will ensure that they get on the middle school shuttle. The shuttle will leave all elementary sites no later than 8:00am. It is recommended that all students are on site by 7:30am.

Families who choose for their student to shuttle between elementary schools and Central will have to do so with a consistent schedule. To make changes to the created transportation plan at the time of registration, families must contact leadership staff.

Summer Vacation Credit

Families who are registered for all 10 weeks of the summer program on a standard contract will have the opportunity to use 1 contracted week of vacation (for example, if you are registered for 3 days/week, you qualify for 3 days vacation time to use throughout the summer). If you would like to take your vacation days, you need to notify the site leadership staff as well as FLEX Billing (Bobbi Hummel) in writing. Vacation credit will be reflected on your August invoice for any days that you chose to use.
