Before-school program to begin at Long Hill, Sunnyside

The Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley now offers a before-school program for students of Long Hill and Sunnyside schools. The program will be held at its Raymond P. Lavietes Clubhouse in downtown Shelton.

In the morning, parents may drop their children off at the clubhouse at 1 Positive Place as early as 7 a.m. Shelton school buses will transport students to school in time for the start of the school day.

The program will open early to accommodate delayed openings, but parents must refer to the club’s parent handbook for details and hours of operation. Membership discounts are available for siblings and for any kindergartner through 7 year old who will also attend the after school program.

Registration must be completed online by Aug. 20 and payment must be made by Aug. 22 to attend the first day of school. Registration will be closed from Aug. 23-Sept. 3.
