Parks & Rec Department Offers School Day Remote Learning Care Program

Wilton’s Parks and Recreation Department is offering a school day remote learning care program beginning Monday, Aug. 31 through Dec. 23. The program, as previously announced by First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice, is being adjusted to accommodate the just-approved remote learning schedule for the first week of school. 

Located at the Comstock Community Center, town officials say the program is “designed to maximize student safety. The program will use the cohort model successfully implemented during the recent Parks & Rec summer camp. Each cohort will include up to eight students and one staff member, and will be assigned a unique classroom.

The program follows the Wilton Public School schedule, and is flexible to allow residents to register for a Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday session with the option of a Wednesday session.

Registration began on Wednesday, Aug. 26, through the department’s e-Trak registration system.

The fee for the two-day option from Aug. 31-Dec. 23 is $1,600.00 per participant. The fee for the three-day option is $2,100.00 per participant. Fees may be paid in full or in two installments. Look for further details on how to register for additional days during the first week of school. Refunds will be provided for any unused days due to an expansion of the school’s in-person learning schedule.

Questions and comments should be directed to Wilton’s Parks and Recreation Office at 203.834.6234 or emailed to Kregg Zulkeski.
