With online school this year, Issaquah Parks & Community Services is excited to to offer Schoolhouse Rec!, a full-day program to help with online learning.
- Grades K – 5
- Monday - Friday
- 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
- Issaquah Community Center
- $60/day; $50/day for Residents
- Online registration
Extended Care: 7:30 – 9 a.m. and 4 – 6 p.m. will be offered for an additional cost.
Schoolhouse Rec! staff are here to assist students through their online school schedule, including both synchronous and asynchronous learning times. Staff are familiar with all of the virtual programs schools are currently using including Zoom, Clever and Seesaw. Children can take a break from their desk for independent reading time in the bean-bag chair filled reading corners.
Schoolhouse Rec! has the added benefit of socialization during lunch, recess and Wednesday afternoon art, PE and silly activities to get the blood pumping. Each day, parents will receive a daily progress report.
Schoolhouse Rec! is available for students in grades K-5 and children will be assigned to a classroom cohort based on their grade. Each cohort will have a dedicated classroom and team of staff to help ensure a healthy learning environment. The school day and program calendar will follow the Issaquah School District plan. If your child is able to return to in-person school on registered days, we are happy to issue a full refund.
Students will need to provide their own laptop, headphones, laptop case and any other necessary school supplies. We can provide paper, pens and basic office supplies when needed, but encourage students to bring anything else they think they’ll need to be successful. Laptops will not be permitted to stay at the Issaquah Community Center overnight.
Health & Safety
A COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan is in place to keep both students and staff safe. CDC Guidelines for handwashing, physical distancing and disinfecting will be strictly followed. Students and staff will be required to wear masks while inside the Issaquah Community Center and outside when physical distancing isn’t possible. Learning stations will be setup 6 feet apart and activities will be planned to maintain physical distancing. Classrooms will hold between 9-14 students based on grade and room capacity. The City of Issaquah policy states that we cannot hold or administer medication. A Participant Information Form is also required.
Registration and Payment Process
Online registration is open. Family-friendly options are available for the duration of Fall quarter. Families may choose the day of the week for a month’s time. For example, if childcare is needed for Monday through Wednesday in September, families will separately enroll for Mondays in September, Tuesdays in September and Wednesdays in September. Note: Total monthly fees will vary depending on number of program days that month.
- General Fee: $60/day
- Resident Fee: $50/day
Families may secure a place for future days and months with a $20 deposit. Monthly balance will automatically be paid one week prior to the start of each month.
