The Scituate Recreation Department is pleased to announce FREE FUN FRIDAYS! In partnership with Scituate Public Schools, the Scituate FACTS Coalition, and Scituate Police, Recreation staff will offer a variety of activities for students in grades 6 – 8 in the Gates Gymnasium and Dining Commons immediately after school. With thanks to Gates PTO and Jack Conway Realtors for their financial support, this program is free to attend.
Based on interest and capacity, we may continue similar programming in the future. Your feedback is welcome at any time, as well as at the next FACTS Open Coalition Meeting where we will discuss the pilot in-depth (Wed 3/21, 6:30-8:00pm at the Scituate Town Library).
How do we sign up?
Registration is not required. This is a drop-in recreation program scheduled for 2/9/18, 2/16/18, 2/23/18, 3/2/18, 3/9/18, 3/16/18 and 3/23/18. All participants must complete a new waiver prior to attending their first session: https://www.scituatema.gov/sites/scituatema/files/uploads/waiver_form_under_18.pdf
Signed waivers may be returned to their homeroom teacher, dropped in the basket in the Gates Main Office, or brought to program Check-In.
Does my child need to bring a waiver each time?
No. Signed waivers will be kept on file for the duration of the program. Participants will check in with a Recreation staff member each week, in the Dining Commons.
How will dismissal work?
The program ends at 4:00pm, and parent/guardians are not required to sign participants out. Please inform a staff member if your child needs to leave early.
My son or daughter has food allergies. What are you serving?
Light snacks including Skinny Pop popcorn, and Cheese and Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza from Papa Gino’s will be available for free in the Dining Commons. No outside food is allowed.
How will you contact me in the event of an emergency?
A member of the Gates School administration will be onsite for the duration of the program in case access to emergency contact/medical information is needed.
Will FREE FUN FRIDAY take place over February vacation week?Yes. Gates will be open for regular program on February 23, 2018, from 2:00-4:00pm.
What if it snows?
Scituate Recreation programs follow the Scituate Public Schools cancellation policy. If school is cancelled, FREE FUN FRIDAY is cancelled.
May I volunteer?
We appreciate the enthusiastic support from our community! For safety reasons, Scituate Recreation will oversee trained recreation staff and other employees of the Town of Scituate for the current program.
