Before Care Program:

The River Valley Before Care Program is a service intended for families whose work schedules require care
outside of the school’s hours of operation. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing program which is fun for students and reliable for parents. 

Hours of Before Care: 7:00 am - 8:10 am

Families intending to access the Before Care Program must complete this registration form and pay a $20.00 fee BEFORE they will be accepted into the program.

For students arriving between 7:00-7:30 is $12.00.  
For students arriving between 7:31-8:10 is $7.00 

The Before Care Program is located at the end of the first-floor hallway. In addition, the program also makes use of the gymnasium. 

Weather Cancellations: 
Before Care is offered every day in which the school is open for students, with the exception of the last day of school. If school is delayed or cancelled because of inclement weather, the Before Care Program will be cancelled.


After Care at Boys & Girls Club of Lower Merrimack Valley

River Valley is excited to announce that we have partnered with the Boys and Girls Club (B&G) in Salisbury.  We are thrilled by the offerings the B&G has for our students and the flexibility and affordability it will provide for our families.   B&G will provide a bus to come and pick up our students from school after dismissal and transport them to B&G each day.  This will be a monthly fee paid directly to B&G.

You may register for  the Boys and Girls Club After School Program using the link to their website -

The benefits of the B&G program are numerous:

  1. The club is primarily privately funded and therefore participation is via an annual membership of $40/year per student. (If transportation is provided by B&G, there will be a transportation fee as well.  It is paid on a monthly basis but ability to afford this will not preclude any student from participation. We are not sure what the transportation fee will be if transportation were to temporarily be funded by River Valley.) 

  2. The club offers drop-in services so parents can use at their discretion

  3. The club is open to students of all ages, K-8.

  4. The club is open until 6:00 pm daily.

  5. The club has a myriad of enrichment activities and resources including: onsite music lessons, sewing lessons, foosball tables, a playground, a gym, a playing field, a dark room, a computer lab, just to name a few. 

  6. B&G serves about 125 students from the local area, opening up opportunities for our students to have a wider and more diverse network of peers. 

  7. B&G also offers fee-based afterschool programming on half days and during school vacations. 

 **All registration and payments will be made directly to Boys & Girls Club
