LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Clark County says those who qualify for the school district’s free and reduced lunch program will be able to participate in its “School Daze” program free of charge through March 30, 2021. The program was created to help families through distance learning after the pandemic caused school closures.

The initiative caters to children ages 5 to 14-years-old and includes supervised, socially-distanced activities.

Parents who would like to enroll their child must provide the following in-person at their chosen School Daze location:

  • CCSD letter confirming their child(ren) qualifies for the free or reduced lunch program
  • Completed Parks and Recreation School Daze registration form

To obtain a letter from the school district, call CCSD’s food service department at 1-800-819-7556. If you would like to apply for free or reduced lunch, click here.

If you do not qualify for the free or reduced lunch program, you can still register your child(ren) for $20/day.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a parent initially registers, they can register in the future here. Registration begins at 12:01 a.m. the Wednesday before the upcoming week.

School Daze runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday at thirteen facilities.

Activities will vary from fun to educational, including:

  • Educational time
  • Games
  • Arts n’ crafts
  • Sports
