SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Suffolk Parks & Recreation announced they will be offering registration for its Kid Zone Before & After School Program and the Rec’ N Crew After School Program for the remainder of the 2021 school year.

The announcement follows Suffolk Public Schools’ return to school hybrid/virtual learning model.

Officials said participants will register for 2 days a week that correspond with their child’s in-school face-to-face days only.

Registration will open once the school system assigns students to attend either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday for in-school face-to-face instruction.

The cost for the registration for both programs is a $35 one-time registration fee per child and a monthly fee.

The following items are needed at the time of registration:

  • Proof of child’s grade
  • Check or money order for the fees
  • Proof of residency
  • Two emergency contacts (other than parent/guardian)

In compliance with the Forward Virginia Phased guidelines, limited camp spaces will be available.

The city said in a press release, precautions will be in place to ensure the safety of children and staff to include daily screening procedures.

Registration will be by appointment only and occur at the child’s school attendance site.

Once an appointment is made officials said customers will be directed to their registration site at one of the following locations:

  • Booker T. Washington Recreation Center, 757-514-7247
