After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, Island Rec’s Study Time and Afternoon Recreation (STAR) program returns to Friday Harbor Elementary School on Monday, March 21.
“The STAR program serves a critical need for elementary age after-school childcare in our community, and we know how important it is for Island Rec to get this program up and running again”, said Maddie Ovenell, Director of Island Rec.
STAR serves children from kindergarten through grade five. It operates out of the elementary school cafeteria each school day from 2:45 p.m. to 6 p.m., as well as early dismissal days from 11:10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Operated by three Island Rec staff members, the program offers free play, a variety of organized recreational and educational activities, and structured homework time, as well as a daily snack.
STAR costs $12.50 per day on regular school days and $18.25 for each early dismissal day. Parents must submit an application to Island Rec prior to their children attending.
