Latchkey After-School Program (October 2017)

 Latchkey After-School Program (October 2017)For the month of October 2017, Your child can sign up for the Latchkey After School Program.  LRPR IS HERE TO PROVIDE A QUALITY AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM FOR YOUR CHILD. More than 15 million school-age children (26%) are on their own after school. Among them, more than one million are in grades K-5. Only 15 percent participate in after-school programs. An additional 18.5 percent would participate if a quality program were available in their community according to "After School Alliance" in 2009. The hours between 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. are the peak hours for juvenile crime and experimentation with drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and other activity. Eight in 10 Americans want all children and teens to have some type of organized activity or safe place to go after school. An analysis of after-school studies concluded that quality after-school programs can lead to improved attendandce, behavior and coursework. Students participating in a quality after-school program went to school more, behaved better, received better grades and did better on tests compared to non-participating students.
