School Age Child Care.

6. How do I know if SACC has a delay, closing early or closed due to the weather?
SACC follows the BPS schedule. If BPS is closed due to weather, SACC will be closed. If it is an activity day, please watch either channel 8 or channel 3 to see if there is a delay, if there is an early closing, or if SACC is closed.
Since the SACC Program is part of Branford Public Schools, we will follow all notifications made by the School District regarding delays, dismissals and closings. We will NOT make separate notifications specifically for SACC, or contact families individually. Please be sure to have a back-up plan in place with your child's school for early dismissal days. The only exception is when school is already closed for a holiday/vacation. Then you can find our announcements on WTNH & WFSB. As a reminder, we also follow the District's schedule for delayed openings for our Before School Programs.
7. How much is the late fee if I pick my child up after 6 pm?
You will be charged $10 for the first 15 minutes and $1 per minute after that. After 6:30PM, emergency contacts will be called. Three late pickups will result in your child's dismissal from the program.

Camp registration will be open in March. Registration forms are available on the Summer Camp Information's Forms link on the website.
9. Do you accept Care4Kids?
We will no longer be accepting Care4Kids starting 2019/2020 school year.
