Once past due balance has been paid, students are welcome to return to the program.
Explorer's Club Enrollment
At FRCS, our students are expected to strive for excellence, both personally and when working in groups. The same expectation applies to students enrolled in the after school program. Therefore, students are reminded that school rules, policies, and procedures apply at all times. Active participation in the activities is also encouraged and students are accountable for demonstrating appropriate behavior and lifeskills while attending the Forest Ranch Explorer's Club.
If you have questions about our Before and After School Care Programs, please call the school office at 891-3154.
