Before & After School Care

Our Before and After School Care program is an extension of the “excellence in education” standard of the Palominas School District. Before and after regular school hours, we provide a safe, caring, and fun environment where we encourage your child’s social, physical, and academic development.

Program Details

The Palominas ESD Before and After Care program is for kindergarten through eighth grade students. Each campus will house its own before and after care for students. Coronado students will go through the big blue gates and into the gym. Palominas students will go into the DMLC/Library.

We require students enroll in our program prior to attending. Please complete the registration forms below. You may also pick them up at your school office.

Pick-Up Policy
Our after school program is a service we provide to parents who need their children to remain in school until 5:45 p.m. Therefore, if you anticipate any conflict with picking up your child on time, please consider other means of care for your child. 

If we have not heard from a child’s parents/guardians by 6:15 p.m. we will presume there has been an emergency and attempt to reach your emergency contact. If we are unable to reach your emergency contact, we will contact the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department for a safe place for your child to stay.
