Project Keep at Franklin, Fuller, Symonds & NOW Wheelock Elementary Schools

Project Keep Update 8/13/20:

With board approval for the hybrid schedule for Fall 2020 in the Keene School District, we have adapted our Project Keep Schedule and payment plan for the first semester of 2020. 

Please note, that we will limit the number of children at each site to a max of 20 per day, with 2 staff members to maintain a 10:1 ratio.  For safety reasons, we can only accept registrations for those students attending during the day at that site’s elementary school, on their student group’s respective days.  At this time, we will only accept additional registrations on a waitlist basis until we know which student groups (1 or 2) the currently registered students fall into and can accurately calculate our availability for each cohort. (If you are not already registered for Project Keep 2020-21, you must complete a registration form in order for your child to be place on the waitlist.)

PAYMENT & REFUND POLICY

 Full payment is due on the due dates above (Sept. 1 for Semester 1 and Oct. 1 for Semester 2)Students will not be able to attend starting Sept. 14/15th if the full payment has not been received by Sept. 10th, and will not be able to attend Nov. 2nd/3rd if the full payment has not been received by Oct. 15th.

 Full refunds will be issued only if Project KEEP is cancelled due to a closure by Keene School District and/or State of NH Dept. of Education.  No refunds will be issued for withdrawal part way through a payment cycle. 

 Due to the limited number of spots and days of attendance, we are unable to structure our payments to accommodate any tiered/reduced payment options at this time.  If you have already registered your student on a reduced payment plan and are encountering a particular hardship with making this payment please contact our office to discuss.
