    The Rec & Ed Before/After Care program staff is thrilled to announce that we anticipate being able to open After Care, and potentially Before Care, at Angell in late September. 

    Registration for Angell Elementary After Care will open on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 10:00 AM. If staffing has stabilized for us to offer the AM program, that will be included as an option in the link on 9/6. Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    The anticipated start date for this program is Monday, Sept. 26.

    Please use this link to register. 

    Important notes about the program and how to register:

    • The program registration is for full-week AM and/or full-week PM.   AM fees will be $256 per month and PM fees will be $384 per month charged each month from September - May. The first payment will be due 9/25. We are not able to offer registration for select days each week or drop-in care.

    • Morning and Afternoon sessions are separate registrations. If you need both AM & PM, please register for both sessions. (The AM program will be included in the registration link on Sept. 6 if it is available.)

    • The registration fee (non-refundable) is $15 per session per student. 

    • Registration requires participants to have accounts in both RecNet and ePACT. If your children participated in Rec & Ed programs this summer, you should already have accounts in both programs. You will not need to create new accounts, but you will need to update the new information required for the Before/After Care program in ePACT . 

    • ePact is the new system for collecting medical and emergency contact information. This saves parents from having to enter medical and emergency contact information multiple times for different Rec & Ed registrations. If you do not already have an ePact account, you will receive an email from ePACT within 48 hours of registration in RecNet.

    If you anticipate needing a scholarship, please contact Amy Hepp or

    If you have any questions, please contact Amy Hepp or 734 994 2300 X 53253
