Breaks & 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.

Fall Break 10/7/19 – 10/18/19

ESS will be open for the two week fall break when schools are closed.

Please see below for the list of sites that will be open during the fall break to see where your child should attend.

To sign up for the fall break, please log in to your existing Eleyo account at If you are new to the program for this school year, please create an Eleyo account before registering for the fall break. There is an annual Registration Fee of $40 to register one child and $60 to register two or more children. This fee is non-refundable. If you have already paid the registration fee for the 19/20 school year you will not be charged the fee at this time.

Space is limited and spots will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. If space is not available for your child, he or she will be put on a waiting list and you will be contacted if room becomes available.

PLEASE NOTE: The deadline to sign up for the fall break is Friday, September 20th at 11:59 p.m. If you wish to sign up after this date, you will need to speak to someone in our billing department. Any enrollment requests after that date and time will be subject to space availability and a $20 late enrollment fee.

If you elect to attend any of the summer weeks and then discover that you do not need it after all, you must contact the ESS Main Office 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. Otherwise you will be responsible for 100% of the fees whether or not your child attends.
