Breaks & Non-School Days


Our ESS summer program will follow all current health and safety guidelines for operating childcare during the COVID-19 pandemic. Childcare costs are $150/week per child. The summer program will operate from Monday, June 22 through Friday, August 7, 2020.

Due to the strict health and safety guidelines requiring stable groupings of children, families will need to commit to the entire summer program. Each family will be allowed one, unpaid vacation week during the summer program. The vacation week must be indicated at time of registration. A vacation is not required. Students do not need to attend every day, but families are responsible for the weekly fees, regardless of attendance.

Once you register your child(ren) for the summer program, you will be responsible for the weekly fees.

If you wish to cancel, you must do so by June 15th, 2020. If you do not cancel by the deadline, you will be responsible for 100% of the weekly fees.

Tentative 2020/2021 Break & Non-School Days

ESS will be open for the fall, winter, spring, and summer breaks!  During these breaks we offer several exciting and enriching activities throughout the day.  We also believe that children should have the opportunity to visit a variety of places and participate in various activities throughout San Diego County.  The cost of these trips is included as part of your weekly fees.   

Breaks are optional and must be signed up for separately.  You must sign up for the break seasons via your Eleyo account.  You may choose to use any or all sessions.  If you elect to attend any of the break sessions and then discover that you do not need them after all, you must contact the ESS Billing Department at the District Offices and cancel at least one week before the session starts to avoid being charged.  Informing the ESS site that you wish to cancel is not sufficient.

If you reserve your spot after sites are full, you will be put on a waiting list for spots as they become available. During the breaks, sites will be combined. Your ESS program may not be at your home site.

ESS will be open from 6 AM to 6 PM daily during the breaks.  Students from other areas/districts may attend the ESS program during break time.  Afternoon snacks will be provided daily.  Check with your Site Lead for more information on daily activities.
