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 7 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.
