Due to snow days, session one will now begin on Tuesday, June 20. 

Due to the forecast for high winds and blizzard-like conditions on Tuesday, the start of summer program registration has been pushed back until Tuesday, March 21st at 8:00 a.m. We apologize for any inconvenience that the change may cause. Department staff want to be able to provide the same high level of customer service that residents have come to expect. The potential for storm related power outages is also a concern that could impact residents ability to register online. Again, online registration for summer programs has been pushed back to Tuesday, March 21st at 8:00 a.m. Thank you for your understanding and please help us spread the word by sharing this message with friends and neighbors.
