Fall Day & Week Programs to Support K-8th Students
Registration Opens at 10a on Thursday
Keystone Science School is working with a large group of community providers to establish childcare options throughout the upcoming school year. Registration will open for the first 3-weeks of KSS Fall Programming at 10a on Thursday, August 6th.
Keystone Science School is collaborating with several youth programs across Summit County in an effort to support families and students in grades K-12. Throughout the fall semester, KSS is offering programmatic options to meet the academic and social-emotional needs of students. Programs will supplement traditional classroom instruction and support working families with their need for child care and academic enrichment. Keystone Science School has two program options which includes full week and day programs.
Full Week Program
Full week programs are for those students who have opted into a virtual curriculum. Small groups will be created of similarly aged students for the duration of each week. Throughout the week students will participate in a traditional KSS program which means the infusion of a week-long theme-based curriculum. The Full Week program will allow a group of no more than 10 students to create their own community while offering them social emotional and academic support. The details of each week are still in development, but it is expected that activities will be project based and may include a service learning project.
Full Day Program
Full Day Programs are designed for families requiring flexibility and child care support on a less consistent basis than the full week. Throughout the day students will receive academic support and participate in several age appropriate activities similar to any Full Week program. All activities will focus on developing a community among the similarly aged students. When students are not participating in traditional KSS activities they will be receiving support for their virtual curriculum whether their own school is following the virtual or hybrid model of instruction.
Fall Program Risk Management
With the support of State and Local Public Health agencies, Keystone Science School has developed risk management procedures specific to mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Newly developed systems helped guide the facilitation of day camp programs at 6 locations throughout Summit County. These same procedures will be in place for all Fall Programs which include the requirement of facial coverings, physical distancing, small group sizes, and daily health screens.
