All participants, including staff, must wear face masks while indoors for this program regardless of vaccination status. Check below under COVID-19 updates for more details. Half Days will be held at each school location site. In regards to Cherry Brook Primary School (grades K-3) the half days will be held on site at CBPS. In regards to Canton Intermediate School (grades 4-6) the half days will be held at the CIS location (with the possibility of being held at the Canton Community Center- CCC). If CIS Half Days are held at the CCC, staff will meet children by the blue bench outside to main entrance, and walk children over to the CCC.
Please register soon in order to secure your spot and to avoid programs being cancelled due to low enrollment. Cherry Brook's site is half way full for half days.

We encourage families to please register early, so we can plan for the success of the program accordingly and so other families can make other arrangements.
