If your child is in school, but will not be attending the program as scheduled, C.A.R.E.S. must be notified. Please let us know by one of the following…

    *You can send a note to school with your child. Please indicate the date so that there is no confusion. 

    *You can leave a message on the C.A.R.E.S. phone at any time 978-815-1509 


    *You can email  kerin.ritchie@wpsk12.com


    Pick-up time is by 5:45.
    We ask that if for some reason you cannot make it before 5:45, try to secure an alternate pick-up for your child and make C.A.R.E.S. aware of the situation.

    There is a late fee that goes into effect at 5:46. The charge is $15 for the first 1-10 minutes and $1.00 per minute thereafter.


    In the event that school is cancelled due to the snow, there is NO before or after school C.A.R.E.S. program.

    If there is a delayed opening, there is NO before school program and the after school program will run accordingly.

    If there is an early dismissal, there is NO after school program. Parents will be notified by the Connect-ed notification system.
