• REACH All Day Banner
  • The Bolingbrook Park District is committed to supporting families during these difficult times. We have worked to secure facilities, hired staff and developed appropriate activities following COVID 19 protocols and guidelines to help working families during the e-learning process. Our REACH Before/After School Program has been expanded to REACH All-Day Care to provide some support to our working families. Participants of All-Day Care REACH will be supervised by Bolingbrook Park District REACH staff.

    Typically, the R.E.A.C.H. (Recreation Enhances A Child’s Health) program provides before/after school care for six Bolingbrook elementary schools. Fall 2020, REACH is being offered as a 5-Day Option (Monday-Friday) from either 8:00 am-6:00 pm or 8:30 am-3:30 pm.

    Participants of All-Day Care REACH will be supervised by Bolingbrook Park District REACH staff.

    The 2020 REACH program will provide supervision for Valley View School District (VVSD) students or Bolingbrook Park District residents, grades K-5th, as they guide themselves through their daily e-learning requirements. Participants will be able to utilize the Bolingbrook Park District facilities for WIFI (as needed), use of the gymnasium, outdoor play areas, structured and unstructured table games, arts and crafts, and personal space/quiet time to relax, read and eat (during certain times or as needed).

    The All-Day Care REACH follows the VVSD calendar and meets on all school days (including half-days). This program will not be available on days off of school, even scheduled holidays. If or when the VVSD student body are required to report to school “in-person,” this program will be provided as an after/before school care program with two options including 6:45-9:00 am or 3:00-6:00 pm at BJ Ward, Jonas Salk, Independence, Pioneer, Tibbott and Oak View.

    Participant Safety

    REACH uses e-Pact, an on-line documentation center, to gather all necessary emergency and medical information for all enrollees. Upon registering for REACH, an email from e-Pact will be sent to the primary email with the Bolingbrook Park District. Registration for REACH will not be complete until all e-Pact information is submitted.

    • Only Bolingbrook Park District residents and Valley View School District (VVSD) students.

    Financial Assistance

    The Bolingbrook Park District understands that this program is an unexpected expense for everyone. To meet the needs of our community, we are providing this program as a fee-based program. Please know that the Bolingbrook Park District is not profiting on this venture, but will require fees for this program to cover all operational expenses for the offering. Financial assistance is offered through the Foundation for Bolingbrook Parks to offset some of this cost for families. This assistance program is open to Bolingbrook Park District residents who currently receive the following benefits: Free Lunch Program, Medicaid, SNAP or DHS support.

    Financial assistance is requested by completing the Financial Assistance Application, Resident ID Form, Registration Form (All-Day REACH), plus proof of the public assistance program benefits listed above.
