General Details

Schoolhouse Rec! staff are here to assist students through their online school schedule, including both synchronous and asynchronous learning times. Staff are familiar with all of the virtual programs schools are currently using including Zoom, Clever and Seesaw. Children can take a break from their desk for independent reading time in the bean-bag chair filled reading corners. 

Schoolhouse Rec! has the added benefit of socialization during lunch, recess and Wednesday afternoon art, PE and silly activities to get the blood pumping. Each day, parents will receive a daily progress report.

The school day and program calendar will follow the Issaquah School District plan. If your child is able to return to in-person school on registered days, we are happy to issue a full refund.

Students will need to provide their own laptop, headphones, laptop case and any other necessary school supplies. We can provide paper, pens and basic office supplies when needed, but encourage students to bring anything else they think they’ll need to be successful. Laptops will not be permitted to stay at the Issaquah Community Center overnight.

Clark Elementary Students

Staff are happy to walk students to Clark in the mornings after Extended Care and meet Clark students in front of the school at 12:30 p.m. to escort them to the Issaquah Community Center.

We are unable to offer transportation options for other schools at this time.

Health & Safety

A COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan is in place to keep both students and staff safe. CDC Guidelines for handwashing, physical distancing and disinfecting will be strictly followed. Students and staff will be required to wear masks while inside the Issaquah Community Center and outside when physical distancing isn’t possible. Learning stations will be setup 6 feet apart and activities will be planned to maintain physical distancing. Classrooms will hold between 9-14 students based on grade and room capacity. The City of Issaquah policy states that we cannot hold or administer medication. A Participant Information Form is also required.   (new form attached)

Registration and Payment Process

Online registration is open. Families may choose the day of the week for a month’s time. For example, if childcare is needed for Monday through Wednesday in April, families will separately enroll for Mondays in April, Tuesdays in April and Wednesdays in April. 

Note: Total monthly fees will vary depending on number of program days that month.

Families may secure a place for future days and months with a $20 deposit. Monthly balance will automatically be paid one week prior to the start of each month.
