By J.J. Smith. After-school programs for prekindergarten through sixth-grade students will be operated by Rockwall ISD at six RISD elementary schools, beginning this week.

Featuring special interest classes, homework help, fitness fun and nutritious snacks, the “ROCK” (Reaching Out Connecting Kids) program costs $250/mo. per student or $125/mo. for students eligible for free/reduced price lunches. A discount is available for multiple students. There will be no charge for August or June.

Operating from 3 to 6 pm, the program is available at the Amy Parks-Heath,  Cullins-Lake Pointe, Hartman, Hays, Pullen and Shannon campuses. Parents can pick up their children at any time and must provide transportation.

According to the RISD website, the program was developed at the request of numerous parents with children in RISD schools.
