Tri-County North K-8 Latchkey Program
Latchkey is a state licensed before and after school child care program for TCN enrolled students in grades K-8.  Our purpose is to provide quality care for children of working parents in an educational and safe environment.  The program is a self-supporting program, meaning they receive NO money from the school district.  The program operates solely on the money parents pay for childcare and by donations.
Latchkey is based within the elementary building in room N109.  From time to time, the program will be held in other designated areas such as the multi-purpose room, library or the playground.   When this occurs, signs will be posted notifying parents of their child’s location.
The Tri-County North Board of Education recognizes the need for this service and therefore is committed to make available this service to the community.   Extensive research has been done and the following information has been determined:
Hours of Operation
