Summer extended school program will open on June 1

MOORE COUNTY — Moore County Schools officials announced today that Moore County Extended School Program (ESP) will open on June 1 and will remain open weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“This summer;s program will be considered as emergency childcare so to speak,” said ESP Director Karen Blankenship. “We want to help those parents that are working and need childcare.”

Summer ESP will follow all CDC guidelines for sanitation, group size, social distancing, etc. Summer groups will also not take field trips nor have guest speakers as usual.

“The program will look very different,” Blankenship says. “But we will still provide lots of fun activities for the children.”

Limited spots are available and your child must be a Moore County resident to attend. ESP provides breakfast, snacks, and lunch. Residents can pick up registration packets on Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. All applications will need to be turned in by Friday, May 29 at noon to be considered for the summer program. There is a $25 per child application fee, which will be used for supplies.
