NEWS: 

***IMPORTANT NOTICE UPDATE - 6/8/20***  Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel all in-person programming for our summer sessions. This directly affects the Rangers Club Summer Program and the Summer Enrichment Program.  Please see announcement letter in list below.

***21st CCLC Program - MHS - Grant Application***:  We are in the process of applying for a new 3-year grant, which is due by Friday, June 26, 2020.  Any questions or comments should be communicated to Robert T. Kfoury, JD, Director of Community Programs at 978-722-6000, x1146; or email at: rtkfoury@methuen.k12.ma.us.

Due to the school closure for the next several weeks (March 16 until June 19, per Gov. Baker) Rangers Club Before & After School Programs, including the April Vacation program, are cancelled; account credits have been applied.  Also, K-8 Enrichment Programming (Current STEAM Enrichment & Homework Clubs) and the MHS 21st CCLC Program are cancelled for the same time period.  Regarding newly offered/proposed STEAM Enrichment sessions parents may have signed up for, they have also been cancelled.  We will update this page periodically as we have more information.  Meanwhile, you may want to check this link out with your childrenScholastic has online "learn at home" resources across subject areas for Pre-K and grades 1-2, 3-5, and 6+. You may also want to check out https://www.wgbh.org/distance-learning-center/broadcast, and the other resources mentioned by the district.  Enjoy!  Thank you.

**FY21 School Year RANGERS CLUB - We have not determined FY21 fall programming at this time.  We are awaiting state guidance and will update this link when we have more news.  Online registrations (via Community Pass) are on hold until further notice.

We will inform you when our online registration and payment program (Community Pass) is available!  At that time you may call our office regarding any new FY21 school-year registration - 978-722-6000, x1146.  Online registrations are required for all applicants and online payments (optional) will provide you with the option of E-Check  or credit card payments for a nominal convenience/transaction fee that is for the payment service provided by/through Community Pass/Capture Point.  Methuen Public Schools does not keep those fees.  We will still accept checks made out to Methuen Public Schools.  Also at that time, our staff will be able to assist you at the Central Administration Building Community Programs office and on-site.  There are no new registrations at this time.  We will endeavor to work with you all to help make this process as smooth as possible.

Again, we appreciate your patience and thank you!
