ARPIL 2021 UPDATE

Portland School Department is combining elementary cohorts for 4 days of instruction each week starting on Monday April 26th. Due to both staffing shortages and available space, some of our After the Bell sites will have limited open spots available. If you are interested in adding or changing your current schedule please contact Julie Hutchins:  jrush@portlandmaine.gov by Friday April 9th 2021

Spaces will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Once the site is filled we will create a wait list with the hope of accommodating requests.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions at recreation@portlandmaine.gov or 207-808-5400.
