    2020-2021 Registration Forms are now available.

    The NEED program, before and after school childcare, is now open for family registrations. While the program will operate differently for the start of this year given the new guidelines, we look forward to when we can again offer extended hours and more plan options. 

    REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

    The Plumsted Township School District is committed to providing both affordable and safe before and after school programs for all students.
    • Please see the 2020-2021 Program Information at the bottom of this page.
    • The NEED program will operate before school from 7:00 am – 8:50 am and after school from dismissal – 5:30 pm at the Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School.
    • The family registration fee is due at the time of enrollment. Registration fees are non-refundable.
    • For the 2020-2021 school year, the family registration fee has been reduced to $30.00 per family and requires the first month’s tuition at the time of enrollment. 
    • Tuition is due on the 15th of the month prior to care. Late fees of $20.00 per family are incurred after the 20th of the month.
    • During our rolling registration time period, all students must be registered at least 5 school days in advance pending space availability. Please allow extra processing time for Free & Reduced Lunch discounts, medical, or special needs accommodations. 
    • If your child has a life-threatening medical condition or allergy, an Individual Education Plan (IEP), a 504 modification plan, or an Individual Health Plan (IHP for a medical condition), it must be indicated on the registration form. We will also need permission to speak with the child’s caseworker and/or school nurse to discuss specific needs in the interest of offering reasonable accommodations to a child in the NEED program. In accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act, the NEED Program will provide reasonable accommodations for participants with disabilities. The District reserves the right to make a determination that students that require accommodations that exceed the reasonable standard would be deemed inappropriate for the program and therefore not eligible to participate. A determination as to whether a requested accommodation is reasonable would be based upon a case by case analysis involving an interactive exchange between the parties to determine whether a reasonable accommodation was capable of being furnished. We strongly encourage open dialogue from all parents to list any special needs/behaviors or any other information that would be helpful to staff to provide a positive experience in the NEED program.
    • There is no nurse available during the before and aftercare program. Please note the NEED staff cannot administer medication. If your child has a potential for allergen reactions or anaphylaxis, we can assist with the administration of an EpiPen. Please make sure that the NEED program and the school nurse has a copy of the treatment plan here.
    • All information must be completed on both sides of the registration form and signed. Please continue to update the NEED program throughout the year if your contact information or contact information for your authorized pick-up individuals change.
    • On your child’s first day of NEED, send a note to the classroom teacher to inform him/her of your child’s NEED schedule.
    • Parents seeking a 2020-2021 Free or Reduced Lunch discount should complete the Free and Reduced Lunch application available on the district website.
    • Confirmation schedules for October will be emailed the last week of September. After that, confirmation schedules are provided monthly to families via email between the 23rd-26th of the month before. Please review your schedule monthly for accuracy and important information including early dismissal days, holiday care, special visits and/or activities.
