Summer break for school is looming on the horizon, and many parents are still undecided about what arrangements to make for summer child care. Youth Health Services Inc. Home Ties School Age Summer Program in Elkins offers options for parents with hectic schedules.

"Children can end summer camp and ease right into our afterschool program," said Karina Shreve, site coordinator and program assistant. "Transportation is available from most schools, making it easier on families who cannot leave work during the day."

The School Age Summer Program is accepting registrations, and its program is available from 6:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays beginning June 10 and running through Aug. 16. Students are divided into pre-k through second grade, and third through sixth grade. Participants may be full- or part-time.
