Care Programs K-5
The Community Services Department of the North Clackamas School District (NCSD) offers safe and fun out-of-school time programs for NCSD elementary students. CARE stands for Community Afterschool Relationship Enrichment Programs.
The CARE Program provides youth with a safe, warm, and welcoming environment where youth receive supports for socio-emotional development, and enrichment opportunities to grow their interest in subjects such as the arts, STEM, physical activities, literature, and many more.
The CARE Program is located at seven elementary schools across NCSD. The NCSD transportation department offers transportation to and from each elementary school to a CARE site location if CARE is not located in your child's school.
