LATCHKEY SERVICES

WCS Latchkey
Warren Consolidated Schools is proud to offer our community a high-quality Latchkey program available before and after school for students in grades K-5 who are registered in one of our fifteen (15) elementary schools.

Latchkey programs provide supervised care on a regular basis for children during hours of the day when school is not in session; and parents are not available. Some benefits include:

  • An opportunity to engage in an organized extracurricular activity outside of the classroom while enhancing the family/school relationship.
  • Children in after school programs have the opportunity to make friends and build relationships with individuals they would not otherwise encounter.
  • A healthier lifestyle as opposed to unsupervised students spending their time home alone watching TV, playing video games, surfing the internet, and eating junk food.
