Local programs busy with kids when school is cancelled

With schools calling off class again on Wednesday, many parents were left scrambling to figure out where to take their kids for the day.

The Quincy YMCA offers a program where school aged kids can go from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Organizers say on Tuesday they had about 25 kids enrolled and on Wednesday they had 45 kids. You do not have to be a member to drop your child off on days school is cancelled.

“The program is open for the community as a whole,” said YMCA After School Coordinator Cristy Fuller. “We want kids to be safe rather than just being at home alone.”

The cost for the day-program is $20 for a member and $25 for non members.
