REC CARE REGISTRATION

Registration for the 2018-19 school year is open.  Click HERE for 2018-2019 school year registration form.  There are multiple pages to the form, please print all pages.  The registration packet for the 2018-19 school year is available under the "Downloadable Forms" tab.  For information on the Rec Care Program please contact Tracy at (708)205-4904 or reccare@peotoneparkdistrict.com.

Rec Care is currently an after school program through the Peotone Park District that is located at Peotone Elementary and Peotone Intermediate Center.  Rec Care runs from the end of the school day to 6pm, and also early release days.  There is no Rec Care if school is not in session.  Parents can choose either location for their children, even if they do not attend that school, and transportation will be provided between schools.  There is a registration fee, but you are charged only for the days your child attends the program.  It is a great solution for those "just in case" moments when parents have meetings or appointments that may run long, or a fun option for kids to spend more time with friends in a secure environment. 


PLEASE BE AWARE:

There are many park improvements planned for the coming months.  Please be aware of your surroundings and use caution when visiting the parks. 

Unauthorized motorized vehicles (cars/ trucks, golf carts, atv's) are NOT allowed on Park grounds or paths.  This is to ensure the safety of all who visit our Parks and to avoid damage to the Park grounds or facilities.  If you have a special need to access a Park facility (helping the elderly or handicapped) please contact the Park Office.  Park motorized vehicles in designated areas.  


2019 Out-of-District Fees

On January 2, 2019 we will start accepting family and individual Out-of-District Fees for 2019.  If you plan to participate in any activity taking place on the Peotone Park District grounds and your permanent residence is out of the Park boundaries (Village of Peotone), you will be assessed an Out-of-District fee.  This is separate than program registration fees and must be paid before participation in Park programs or other programs taking place on park grounds (youth baseball/softball, MYSA soccer, etc.)

The fee structure is $25.00 for an individual or $50.00 for a family (more than 1 person).  This fee covers the calendar year.  This fee can be paid in a variety of ways:
