What is Rec Check?
The Saint Paul Parks and Recreaction Department operates the Rec Check Program. Rec Check is a free after-school program for youth, grades 1-6, provided at the recreation centers listed below. Youth check in with Rec Check Staff when arriving at the center and check out when leaving. Parents can request to be notified when their child does not check in at the center. Rec Check is for youth who live in Saint Paul or go to school in Saint Paul.
When Is It Held?
The program is held Monday - Friday, 3 - 6 pm on days when the Saint Paul Public Schools are in session including early release days. Rec Check runs September 12, 2011 through June 8, 2012. Start times may vary due to the different school release times.
Children participate in a variety of structured, supervised activities including homework help, arts & crafts, reading and special events. To promote health and fitness, the staff will engage the youth daily in physical activities such as gym games, outdoor play or walking. A daily snack is also provided.
Do I Need to Register My Child?
Yes. All sites have limited enrollment. Registration is taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration forms need to be completed at a site before a child may attend. Registration cannot be completed on-line. Rec Check is open for youth who live in Saint Paul or attend school in Saint Paul.
