The Before and After School (BAS) program provides students of Summit Hill School District 161, in grades kindergarten through six, a structured, safe place to be cared for immediately before and after school. Our program is staffed by certified teachers as well as other trained, experienced leaders, all employed by the park district. Our hours are from 6:30am until school begins and immediately after school until 6:30pm, including all half days.

Transportation will be provided by existing school buses at all participating Summit Hill 161 schools. Transportation for before and after school activities is also offered. Low student-to-staff ratios, exercise, and healthy snacks are also provided daily.

BAS will be located at Mary Drew, which is at 20130 S. Rosewood Dr, Frankfort, IL 60423. This facility give students access to a full-size gymnasium for games and active play, along with a playground, baseball field, football field, and tennis courts directly outside.

Initial registration must be done at the park district office. Registration for specific days may be completed either online or at the park district office. Each participant must register by Friday at noon, two weeks prior to the weeks needed, to allow for staffing and transportation.

New this year, the park district is partnering with, an electronic health record system. This will help us consolidate and integrate participant information into a centralized and secure location. Additional information regarding this new system will be available in the parent manual.
