IS BEFORE- AND AFTER-CARE AVAILABLE?
For Elementary Students:
SMMUSD's Child Development Services (CDS) will provide elementary before- and after-care ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS! CDS registration forms are available HERE.
Return forms by mail to 2828 4th Street, SM 90405; fax to 310-314-0859; email to email@example.com. See forms for details.
Because space is limited and not guaranteed at CDS, please sign up for before- and after-care as soon as possible. We regret we cannot offer refunds due to before- or after-care limitations.
For Middle School Students:
Boys and Girls Club on the JAMS campus offers after-care. A bus will pick up students from Lincoln and take them to the JAMS Clubhouse. Click HERE to apply. (And remember to click "enroll" under "Transportation Service.")
DO I USE MY CHILD'S CURRENT GRADE LEVEL, OR THEIR GRADE LEVEL FOR NEXT YEAR?
When registering you'll be asked to indicate your child's grade level, and that will determine the classes for which your child can enroll. When entering their grade level, select the grade your child will be entering in August 2022.
IS THIS PROGRAM ONLY FOR SMMUSD KIDS?
Summer Adventure is not a part of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, though we work in close partnership with the District. Summer Adventure is open to non-SMMUSD students as well. However, only SMMUSD students are eligible for scholarships.
DO YOU HAVE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?
Yes! We have discounted rates for SMMUSD students only who are enrolled in the Federal School Lunch Program. Students on the free lunch program pay a discounted rate of $95 elementary/$99 middle school for a full, five-week program. Students on the reduced-fee lunch program pay $225 elementary/$229 middle school for the full, five-week program. Proof of enrollment in the lunch program is required; you must submit a copy of your letter to receive a scholarship.
CAN STUDENTS NOT ON THE FEDERAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIPS?
SMMUSD students who are not on the Federal School Lunch Program can apply for a scholarship during registration. You will need to submit an application, along with financial information. Notification should take place in about a week. A deposit of $95 for elementary or $99 for middle school is required when you apply and will be applied to your tuition. If you do not receive a scholarship, you may elect to pay the full tuition or withdraw from the program and have your deposit refunded.
SHOULD I WAIT TO REGISTER UNTIL I'M INFORMED ABOUT MY SCHOLARSHIP?
No, please DO NOT wait to register. Classes fill quickly, so register your child as early in the registration period as possible. If you do not receive a scholarship, you may elect to withdraw with no penalty.
If your child is already enrolled in the Federal School Lunch Program, you are guaranteed a scholarship once proof of enrollment is submitted.
CAN MY CHILD TAKE MEDICATION AT SUMMER ADVENTURE?
We can help with that, but you must first complete this medication form and have it signed by a physician. We regret that we do not have access to your child's school records and cannot use the school district's form.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Payment can be made online via credit card (Visa/MasterCard) or echeck. If you need to pay by cash, money order, or cashier's check, you will need to come to our offices to register during Summer Adventure business hours. Checks must be made out to SMMPTA or Santa Monica-Malibu Council of PTAs.
WHAT IS YOUR TAX ID NUMBER?
Summer Adventure is operated under the Santa Monica-Malibu PTA Council tax id number 95-4109858
I NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE TO MY REGISTRATION. CAN I JUST LOG BACK INTO THE SYSTEM?
If you need to update contact information, complete a scholarship or medical form, or update emergency contacts, please log into the system to do so. HOWEVER, if you need to request a change of class or program, please contact our offices directly. DO NOT delete classes in which your child is already enrolled, attempt to add classes, or attempt to add middle school weeks -- you may lose the class you want. Contact our office and we will be happy to assist you.
