  • Hybrid and Distance Learning care will be available to all, but ISD 728 will prioritize care per the Governor’s order, to families who qualify under the Tier 1 emergency care workers. 

    Transportation to and/or from EdVenture Club is not available. If you register for School Day care alone or in combination with Before or After School care, your child will need to be dropped off and picked up by a parent or other authorized person, even though the start and end times of childcare may be the same as the typical school day. This supports the directive to limit the number of students on buses during a Hybrid or Distance Learning Model.

    ISD728 families needing care are encouraged to register as soon as possible as space and staffing may limit the number of students able to be served in the childcare program.

    For more information and to register please visit our EdVenture Club website at: www.isd728.org/EdVClub-Registration
