Before and After School Child Care

  • SCASD MORNING DELAY: All Before-School programs are cancelled for the day. All After-School programs will operate on their regular schedule.
  • SCASD CLOSED: Call the YMCA to find out if there will be full-day child care available. (If so, the full-day child care will open at 8:00 am.) If the YMCA closes due to inclement weather, all YMCA programs, including child care, are cancelled for the day.
  • SCASD EARLY DISMISSAL: We will run a child care program until 6:00 pm if the YMCA facility is not closing also, however would like you to pick up by 5:30 to allow staff to also get home safely. Call the YMCA to inform us if your child will be coming to the YMCA by bus, our private buses will also . It is very important that we know which children to expect so that a staff member can be there to meet the bus when it arrives.

Swim Team

  • If SCASD closes the SCAY Aqualions inclement weather policy is that a decision will be made by 2:00 PM that day. A notice will be placed on their website, an email will be sent out to the team and they will notify the front desk staff whether or not practices will be held that afternoon/evening. If the decision is made to hold practices, parents should use their best judgment concerning road conditions.
