    Admission and Discharge

    Goreville CUSD #1 students in grades Kindergarten – 5th grade are eligible to attend. There will be a required yearly enrollment fee of $10 which is due when enrollment papers are submitted.  (Income eligible families - fees will be waived)

    Daily fees are due at the end of each week. Late fees will be requested when parents arrive to pick up their child.

    Students may be discharged from the program due to behavior problems, excessive late pick-ups and/or non-payment of fees.

    Arrivals and Departure

    Students staying for the afterschool program are expected to report to the designated area directly after dismissal time. If someone other than the parent or legal guardian is picking up a student, the supervisor MUST have their name and number listed on the approved contact/pick-up list. If a change in pick-up occurs, please notify the director in writing or by phone before 2:15 pm.

    Parents must come into the building and sign their child out each day. We will not send children out of the school on their own.


    Please fill out the information in the document below and return it to your child's teacher.
