Pre-registration Fee for 2018-2019 SMART-E Before and After School Care 
Families who need before school, after school, and/or K Play care in the 2018-2019 school year are asked to pay a non-refundable, pre-registration fee of $100 per family. Families will only need to pay one (1) pre-registration fee regardless of whether they will need morning care, K Play, and/or after school care (must participate in the lottery for after school care).

  • 2018-2019 Morning Care Only.  Pre-registration for families needing only morning care will open on May 1, 2018.
  • 2018-2019 K Play Only.  Pre-registration for families needing only K Play will open on May 1, 2018.
  • 2018-2019 After School Care Only.  Based on lottery placement, selected families are asked to confirm their placement by paying the pre-registration fee within 48 hours of notification of being selected.  Families will be sent a payment link when notified of selection.  Waitlisted families, if offered placement, are asked to confirm their placement within 48 hours of notification to confirm their space.

SMART-E Online Registration/Enrollment System

For optimal results, it is recommended that enrollment is completed on a PC or MAC, as smartphone enrollment is not always consistent.

Using our online registration system (ActiveNet), parents have the flexibility of booking your child’s morning care or K Play monthly, weekly, or daily.  This does not apply to after school care.  The registration system does not allow cancellations and refunds for care purchased.  We recommend purchasing only days needed with the option of purchasing additional days per week as the need arises. Parents may add days online up to 5:30AM the day that morning or K Play is needed, if space is available. Should you encounter difficulty registering, a screen shot (emailed to smarteinfo@scsdk8.org) is necessary in order for our staff to assist you easily and promptly.
