Program Information

We have redesigned our Extended Student Services (ESS) program in response to COVID-19.  We will be offering child care from 7:30 AM - 6:00 PM for Alpine Union School District (AUSD) students from grades TK/EAK through eighth grade. We operate programs on the Creekside Early Learning Center (CELC) and Boulder Oaks Elementary School (BOES) campuses for all school sites. Our staff is ready to provide a nurturing environment filled with praise, encouragement, and support. ESS staff focuses on providing a kind, safe, respectful, and responsible environment where students can begin and end their day. We will be following all the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines and protocols. 

Hours & Days of Operation

AM - 7:30 AM to School Start Times
