2019-2020 School Age Care Registration

A group of school age care kids gathered on the steps of the Como Zoo Conservatory.

It’s that time of the year already to start thinking about the start of the 2019-2020 School Year. Hudson School Age Care is excited to have your child join us for a year of fun and learning! 

Hudson School District families with children in grades 4K-5 needing supervision before or after school may choose to use the School District’s School Age Care. We provide care at all of our elementary schools.

The goal of the School Age Care program is to provide quality before and after-school care in a fun, safe, and caring environment. The program fosters self-esteem while promoting the interests and social skills of each child. Children choose from a wide variety of activities, which include: cooperative games, open-ended art activities, science discovery, dramatic play, large motor activities, homework helper, and socialization opportunities.

School Age Care is available from 6:05 AM to the start of school, and from the end of school until 6:00 PM on school days. Families with children in the Hudson School District 4K program at Willow River Elementary School  may choose to enroll their child in our program before school if their child is in the morning 4K program or after school if their child is in the afternoon 4K program. 

Nutrition Services provides breakfast each day at no additional cost to children enrolled in School Age Care. An after-school  snack is also served in the program. 

Families with children who have special needs should contact the School Age Care Coordinator to discuss how School Age Care may best meet your child’s needs and provide a successful experience.

Bugs in the Classroom!

River Crest students recently participated in “Bugs in the Classroom.”  Volunteers from Trout Unlimited brought in various types of water insects for the students to observe how bugs look, move, their color, and more.  The students took notes on their observations and used their notes to complete additional coursework. The students and staff all had the opportunity to hold each of the creepy and crawly bugs.

The School District has created the Mental Health Advisory Council consisting of staff, students, parents, and community members. The purpose of the Advisory is to discuss issues and barriers but most importantly, to develop goals to increase collaboration to better meet the needs of all our community members.

The Mental Health Advisory Council will seek different view points, gather meaningful input, and encourage solutions to address identified mental health issues within the Hudson School District.
