    Families previously registered for Before/After care with Discovery Club for the 2020-21 school year will need to re-register if interested in full-day care during Distance Learning. Your original contract requests for Before/After care will remain on your account (no fees charged at this time) to allow Discovery Club to honor the previously processed contracts should SPPS transition to school in session, 5 days a week, within the current school year. Should you choose to withdraw your previously processed Before/After care contract for the 2020-21 school year, your $25 registration fee will be refunded. Contracts can be withdrawn through your online account or by sending an email to discovery.club@spps.org.
