The results are in and there is a lot of interest in before and after school care programs at John F. Kennedy School in Spring Valley.

At Wednesday night’s meeting, principal Shelly Nauman informed the school board the district had sent out a survey to assess interest in programs for students either before classes start or after they end.

Nauman said 44 people showed interest in before school programming while 54 showed interest in after school care programming.

“Even the ones that weren’t interested said it sounds great by they don’t need it right now,” Nauman said.

But the school will be moving forward with the idea. Later in the meeting they voted to create the care programs.

Nauman said parents showed interest in having the before school programming start as early as 6:30 a.m. She said after school care would be until 5 p.m., although no plans are currently set in stone.

The costs per student per day are currently assessed at $3 for the morning session and $5 for the evening session.
