Free programs for middle & high school students on early release school days
To support families and youth with Shoreline School District's early release Wednesdays, we have expanded free recreation opportunities for youth at the Shoreline Pool, Spartan Recreation Center, Shoreline Teen Center, and at middle school “Hang Time” programs.
Hang Time is an after school program sponsored by the City, School District, and YMCA at Kellogg and Einstein Middle Schools. Hang Time begins when the school day ends on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to ensure all students have the option of supervised, organized activities during this time.
At the Spartan Recreation Center, we have eliminated youth drop-in fees to allow youth to participate in drop-in gym/weight room time for free, not only during the early release hours, but also during all open gym times.
The Shoreline Teen Center that traditionally opens at the end of the high school day has expanded to include the new early release time on Wednesdays.
Lastly, the Shoreline Pool will offer a free lifeguard certification class in the fall and winter/spring quarters, allowing all interested youth equal opportunity to become eligible for entry-level lifeguard positions in the community and region at no cost.
