The Before and After the Bell Program will open for the 2018-2019 school year on Wednesday July 18th at 6:30 a.m.

Our program follows the Florence School District Calendar. When school is closed, the program is also closed. We also offer an Intersession Program during Fall, Spring and Summer for an additional fee.

Anthem K-8 Program is located inside of the K-8 in the choir room directly across from the front office. This room is accessible from the inside and outside of the school. Program staff will pick up kids in Kindergarten to 2nd grade. The rest of the kids will meet at the program room directly after school, if not already specified to staff.

Florence K-8 Program is located at the older, lower campus of the school. The room numbers are 13 and 14. You can access the program from Orlando Street, and turn into the lower campus area, just past the gym. Program staff will pick up kids in Kindergarten to 2nd grade. The rest of the kids will meet at the program room directly after school, if not already specified to staff.

The fee for the Before and After the Bell Program is $55.00 per month for residents of Florence and $69.00 per month for non-residents. The registration fee and necessary form must be completed prior to your child attending the program.
