Late Bird Program

Late Bird Program (Your family must qualify to participate in this program):

The Late Bird Program is an offering available to Watertown Public School (WPS) families that have a student or students enrolled at the Cunniff, Hosmer, or Lowell Elementary Schools AND a student or students enrolled at Watertown Middle (WMS) or Watertown High School (WHS).  The intent of this program is to provide a safe care option for elementary students who are waiting to be picked up by their older sibling attending WMS or WHS (after school is dismissed).  This program was developed in order to address the change in WPS start and end times effective September 2018 that shifted dismissal times for grades 6-12 to a later time than the K-5 grades.  WPS employees are also eligible to participate in this program.  The program runs from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm daily.  *Important: Please note that the Late Bird Program is not available on early release days.
