Elementary Daily Latchkey: Students at Roosevelt and Kennedy Schools have an opportunity to attend both before and after school latchkey, students at Coolidge School may attend after school only. For rates, times and more information, visit the Before & After School link below. Registration forms are also included below for your convenience.

School Improvement Mondays: Teachers will be collaborating on important school improvement matters for one hour on Mondays throughout the school year. This means school will be dismissed one hour early on Mondays (when school is in session). The district calendar will identify these Mondays and parents will receive reminders in advance. Latchkey will be provided on School Improvement Mondays for children to remain at school until the regular dismissal time. For students using Latchkey for the one hour only on School Improvement Mondays, and not enrolled in daily Latchkey, there is no registration fee and the rates are as follows:
Fee for full year: $140 (paid in advance for all 32 Mondays)
Fee per semester: $85 (Paid in advance)
Fee per month: Varies depending on the number of Mondays, at $6/Monday (Paid 1 week in advance)

Enrichment Camps: The Ferndale Schools also offer fun enrichment camps when school is not in session (during the school year), including half and full day camps, and a wonderful Spring Break camp option for our families. More information on how to sign up for camps is posted here prior to each camp experience.

All questions regarding latchkey and child care services can be directed to Gretchen Abrams, Child Care Program Director, at 248/586-8795.
