Out of School Program

Newport Parks and Recreation has expanded its out of school care offerings to offer parents more options during the school year. With online school, parents are trying to juggle having to go to work while also having a safe place for children to learn. Newport Parks and Recreation wants to help!

Newport Parks and Recreation Out of School Program will provide a reliable and consistent place for children to learn, as well as participate in safe and socially enriching activities.

Our rooms will feature stable pods of 10 children and may grow if safety guidelines allow. Limited spots are available now and interest lists are being taken for additional spots. Newport Parks and Recreation is working closely with the Lincoln County School District to ensure our program is what our students need.

How long will the program continue in the current format?

Our intent is to continue the program in this format until the Lincoln County School District changes the format for school time. We are prepared to adjust the program as new guidelines for care are announced.

Will programs be modified to assist with health and safety?

Smaller, stable groups will be maintained. At this time, each class will have a maximum of 10 kids with the same staff. Activities and classrooms will support physical distancing, striving to maintain six (6) feet between participants. All staff and participants, age 5 and up, will be required to wear face masks or face coverings. Restroom areas will have enhanced cleaning. Staff members will be trained in disinfecting and cleaning procedures for classrooms.

Will staff assist with schoolwork?

Staff members will be able to provide support for learning but are not certified teachers. They will work to keep students on-task and engaged when distance learning is taking place, encourage students to complete classwork, and monitor for progress toward assignments. Staff members will not be responsible for submitting school assignments or completing work given online by a licensed instructor.
