ENGLEWOOD — Northmont City Schools offer two types of payment programs to better suit families’ needs. The district listened to residents’ needs and has added options to latchkey.

The Flexible Program will be billed by the hour at $3.50 per hour. All times will be rounded up to the next hour.

The Contract Program will be billed by either Part Time or Full Time status. Please complete the form by your child’s first day in latchkey and it will remain in effect until winter break. In January, you will have the opportunity to change to the Flexible program if your family situation has changed. There will be no additional charges for delays and late start days.

$60 per child per week for a.m. and p.m.

Additional Charges:

$10 per child for every 15 minutes late for pick up.
