Before and After School Programs


Dear GVSD Families,

Welcome back to school and the Grass Valley School District Before and After School Program.
The Grass Valley School District is offering Kindergarten through 8th grade childcare at Bell Hill
Academy, Scotten, and Lyman Gilmore Middle Schools.
Care is available at Bell Hill, Scotten and Lyman Gilmore Schools, Monday through Friday, 7:00 to
9:00 a.m. and from the release of school to 6:00 p.m. Lyman Gilmore and Scotten program hours
will be till 6:30 p.m. We are happy to offer students supper, a healthy snack, homework
assistance and fun recreational activities!

There are three types of care available in our school district:

1. Our “Year Round Program” offers childcare with a need for care on a sliding scale fee and
is available weekdays except legal holidays. Enrollment is on a continuous basis. If your
child(ren) are currently enrolled in the “Year Round Program” (eligibility criteria are income
and level of need and you have met with the Enrollment Coordinator), you do not need to do
anything.

2. Our “After School Education and Safety Program” (ASES) is offered before and after
school on regular school days. There is no charge, but enrollment is limited and offered on a
first-come, first-served basis. A purple enrollment form is included in the first day packet
or can be picked up in the school office or the after school program rooms.

**SPECIAL NOTE**: All Programs start on the first day of school, August 13th. Bell Hill
Academy, Scotten and Lyman Gilmore students should turn in the purple enrollment
form to the school office or the afterschool program room. You will be called when
your child can begin.

3. Our “Full Pay Option” is available before/after/in-service/minimum days/breaks and
summer session. Please call Cathy Sharp, Enrollment Coordinator, for more details at
530.575.6948.

Looking forward to a fun-filled year with your children.
