Kenosha, WI – September 4, 2020 – Given the change in KUSD’s operational plan, the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha will now offer traditional after school programming for the start of the 2020-2021 school year beginning on Monday, September 14th. In the event that KUSD changes to exclusively virtual instruction, the BGCK will plan to host the virtual learning support program. That program will not be active or available to families unless KUSD goes completely virtual.
Youth and Tween Center hours will be from 2:30 – 6:45pm Monday through Thursday and 11:30am – 4:45pm on Fridays. Teen Center hours will be from 3 – 8pm Monday through Thursday and 2 – 6pm on Fridays. The Laken Family Jefferson Elementary Extension Program will be open on days when school is in session, Monday through Thursday from dismissal until 5:30pm and on Fridays from dismissal until 5pm. Free dinner will be served daily to all members.
Free bus transportation to the Club will be available from Bose, Brass, EBSOLA Creative Arts, EBSOLA Dual Language, Grant, Grewenow, McKinley, Roosevelt, and Vernon Elementary Schools. Limited space is available.
Registration for bussing and for the Laken Family Jefferson Elementary Extension Program must be done in person at the BGCK front desk and will begin on Tuesday, September 8th at 7am. The BGCK will be open from 7am – 6pm next week (9/8 – 9/11). For teen members ages 13-18, free bus tokens are available and can be picked up on the first day attending.
The Club will function as a drop-in center, as parents can drop off or pick up their children at any time during open hours. Current memberships are required and are $20 per child per year. Masks are required for all members and staff. Enhanced sanitation and social distancing practices will remain in place.
