Before and After School Program

Dear District Families,

It is with much excitement that we share the following information with you in regards to Fee Based Programs for before and after school child care here at Gateway Elementary School. As you know the School District of Lee County has moved to new proximity zones in the school year, 2023-24. With that in mind, many more of our families may require before or after care for their children. Our team has worked to align our school programs to provide the most support to our families.
