Overview of Chardon Local Schools' Latchkey Program

The goal of our Latchkey Program is to provide dependable and economical child care for working parents/guardians in a pleasant and informal atmosphere where children feel safe and accepted.  The Latchkey Program operates only when school is in session.  If the school building is closed due to holidays, breaks, calamity/snow days, or emergency remote learning, the Latchkey Program will also be closed.

The Latchkey Program charges a 1-hour minimum.  **Please note that all families, including returning families, are asked to review our updated policies (see link listed above) each year and also complete a registration form (see link listed above) for each student for the new school year.  We require a minimum of 24 hours after receiving registration before a child can begin the program.**


Temporary Latchkey
Registration Closure

Please note that 2021-22 registration for our K-7 Latchkey program is temporarily closed due to higher than anticipated enrollment in the program.   


The Latchkey program itself is open and in full operation, and we look forward to re-opening registration for more students once staffing in the program has increased to support additional enrollments.


In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at the email address or phone numbers above with any questions you may have or to check to see if your student’s school may have an available A.M. or P.M. opening.  


Latchkey is offered for students who attend the following schools:

Chardon Early Learning Center 
(KDG only — A.M. and P.M.)

Chardon Middle School 
(Grades 4-7 — P.M. only)

Munson Elementary 
(Grades 1-3 — A.M. and P.M.)

Park Elementary 
(Grades 1-3 — A.M. and P.M.)


Registration and policy links will be re-posted to this page once registration re-opens.


**Please note that registrations need to be filled out in advance and dropped off at the Board office (424 North Street, Chardon 44024).**  We ask that you do not drop off Latchkey registrations at your student’s school. 


We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of registration and thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to serving you and your CMS Hilltopper student(s) in the 2021-22 school year!
