Vote yes on Article #2 Multi-Generational Community CenterHow will this impact my taxes? The cost of the building will have a tax impact of $.31/thousand.  Example: The median residential land and building value in Wakefield is $242,250.  Resulting in an impact of $77.52/per year.Will this require more staff? If any additional staff is needed we plan to pay for them with self-sustaining programs.Will it cost more to operate and maintain this facility than the current building? A bigger building may cost more to operate but it's anticipated that these costs will be offset with revenue from various programs. ICF construction and LED lighting utilities are extremely efficient and our hope is to keep utility costs low.  Are you looking into using green energy for utilities? Yes. We will be using motion activated LED lighting, solar options, and are researching ICF construction.When did this project begin? In 2010 the master plan survey identified the needIn 2018 we hired UNH (at no cost to the tax payers) to determine if there was a need in Wakefield for this building.  The team from UNH presented their findings to the selectmen in August of 2019. You can view that video here. https://vimeo.com/355239610 After approval from the selectmen to continue on with our project we started working with Harriman architect firm that conducted a feasibility study for us. This was again at a zero cost to the tax payers. In January of 2022 the selectmen approved Warrant article 2 to be passed through to the budget committee. The budget committee approved warrant article 2 on a vote of 8-4 in favor. Your vote is important! We need your support at the deliberative session on February 5th @ 9am.

If any additional staff is needed we plan to pay for them with self-sustaining programs.Will it cost more to operate and maintain this facility than the current building? A bigger building may cost more to operate but it's anticipated that these costs will be offset with revenue from various programs. ICF construction and LED lighting utilities are extremely efficient and our hope is to keep utility costs low.  Are you looking into using green energy for utilities? Yes. We will be using motion activated LED lighting, solar options, and are researching ICF construction.When did this project begin? In 2010 the master plan survey identified the needIn 2018 we hired UNH (at no cost to the tax payers) to determine if there was a need in Wakefield for this building.  The team from UNH presented their findings to the selectmen in August of 2019. You can view that video here. https://vimeo.com/355239610 After approval from the selectmen to continue on with our project we started working with Harriman architect firm that conducted a feasibility study for us. This was again at a zero cost to the tax payers. In January of 2022 the selectmen approved Warrant article 2 to be passed through to the budget committee. The budget committee approved warrant article 2 on a vote of 8-4 in favor. Your vote is important! We need your support at the deliberative session on February 5th @ 9am.

Transportation will be provided daily from the school to the Recreation Department by school transportation. The A.S.P. will be open Monday – Friday, 3pm – 5:30pm from the first day of school to the last day of the school year. ASP will be closed on school vacations, snow days, or teacher workshop days. If the school has early dismissal for snow days ASP will be open as long as possible to accommodate parents. We reserve the right to close ASP early in the event of serious snow storms. ASP will be open on early release days @ the regular daily rate.  Full Time/Part Time: We will try our best to accommodate parents by offering a part-time option to our program. Parents will be able to pay a daily rate to have their children attend the ASP but they will need to specify the days the children will be in attendance at the time of registration.  Fees: Payments will be due every Monday. We require a two week notice if you are planning to withdraw your child from the ASP.   1 FULL TIME CHILD$60 per week2FULL TIME CHILDREN$85 per week3 FULL TIME CHILDREN$110 per week1 PART TIME CHILD$20 per day2 Part Time Children$30 per day 3 Part Time Children$40 per day Attendance: Please make sure to call the Rec at 522-9977 ahead of time if your child will not be attending the program on a certain day. You will not receive a refund if your child misses a day of the ASP. If your child is absent from school they will not be allowed to attend ASP.  Transportation: The school bus will be transporting the students from the school to the Recreation Department where members of our staff will be waiting. Your child will need to send in a note the first day of school informing the teacher. If your child will be attending ASP on a part-time basis you will need to alert your teacher of the days that they will be attending. 0Sign out Details: ASP ends at 5:30pm. If we are to dismiss camp at another location, you will be notified. Children must be signed out by a parent/guardian or person listed as a “pick up person” on their registration form. Staff members are required to request a picture ID from parents or persons they do not recognize. Please make sure anyone listed to pick your child up from ASP is aware of this policy. Staff will not allow any child to leave with someone unless they have a picture ID and are on the pickup list. If you would like to permit your child to walk or ride their bike home from ASP you will need to sign the walker/bike rider portion of the registration form.  Late Pick-Up Policy: ASP ends at 5:30PM. All children must be picked up on time! We have no overtime in our budget and staff must be paid for all hours worked. Any fines must be paid before your child returns to ASP. You will be assessed the following fines if we need to stay late: 1st time warning After 5:30pm $5 After 5:40pm $10 After 5:45pm $15 $5 each additional 5 minutes! Outrageous, isn’t it?! We think so too; however we cannot be waiting for children to be picked up. The fee is a fine, a fine we do not ever want to collect. We would prefer you to pick your child up on time. This fine will not be assessed in cases of family emergencies or legitimate circumstances. In these cases, please call the Recreation Department at 603-522-9977. As we stated before, we hope never to collect a single fine. Please be on time!  Clothing requirements: Participants will be required to wear appropriate clothing at all times while at ASP. During the winter months please make sure your child has appropriate clothing to play outside. (Snow pants, boots, gloves, hats, etc.) Your child will have an assigned locker if you would like to send a bag of extra winter clothes to be left at the Rec during the week.   Daily Activities: Once all students have been dropped off at the Rec Department we will offer a daily snack and rest time before our next activity. We will spend time at the local playgrounds, doing arts & crafts, playing board games, and participating in group games. We will also provide a quiet time for your children to do their homework daily.  Personal Items: Counselors reserve the right to confiscate any electronic devices until the end of the day if these items become a problem. Squirt guns, toy guns, stuffed animals, and all personal toys or sports equipment should be left at home. Please do not send your child to ASP with large sums of money. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items! We also ask that children leave their cell phones at home. If you prefer your child to carry a cell phone to communication with you then we will need the campers to follow all the rules regarding the use of cell phones during the program. If the phone becomes a problem our staff reserves the right to confiscate the device until the end of the day.  Snack: We will provide 1 snack daily. You are welcome to send along extra snacks from home in your child’s bag. Please make sure they have a refillable water bottle in their bag that they will be able to use at ASP.  Lost & Found: If your child loses something please check the lost & found box located inside the Recreation Department building.  Head Lice “No Nit” Policy: A child who is found to have lice or nits will be sent home for at least 24 hours after treatment is completed. Removal of ALL lice and nits is required before returning to camp.  Medication Policy: Children are not allowed to bring medication with them or in their belongings to camp. Staff is not allowed to administer medication. We will allow emergency medication to be brought to camp such as EpiPens and inhalers. They may be kept in a child’s backpack, but must be labeled with campers first and last name. Parents must indicate their child’s need for emergency medication on their registration form.  Field Trips: We may take trips to local parks or nature trails. Our “Rec Express” is available to transport children to and from surrounding areas. You will be notified if we plan to attend any type of field trip. On early release days field trips may be scheduled. Certain trips may require extra payments. You will be alerted well in advance if we plan any outings.  Policies: The Rec Department reserves the right to cancel any program, event, or activity due to insufficient registration or for any other reason preventing a quality activity.  Discipline Policy: It is our goal to provide a physically and emotionally safe place for all participants. We ask participants to respect themselves, others, and our environment, by following the rules and instructions given during trips/activities and using appropriate language. Inappropriate behavior will be addressed immediately. Consequences may include participants being sent home, restricted from transportation, and/or suspended from future activities without a refund. We have very strict hands off policy. Any fighting or other unsafe behavior may result in immediate dismissal from Recreation Programs.  *If a child’s behavior continues to be a problem, a parent conference will be arranged and child’s participation may be in jeopardy. We reserve the right to remove any child from our program if behavior is continuously a problem.

8:00 AM - 4:00 PM    Multi-generational Community Center - UNH NEEDS ASSESMENT
Vote yes on Article #2 Multi-Generational Community CenterHow will this impact my taxes? The cost of the building will have a tax impact of $.31/thousand.  Example: The median residential land and building value in Wakefield is $242,250.  Resulting in an impact of $77.52/per year.Will this require more staff? If any additional staff is needed we plan to pay for them with self-sustaining programs.Will it cost more to operate and maintain this facility than the current building? A bigger building may cost more to operate but it's anticipated that these costs will be offset with revenue from various programs. ICF construction and LED lighting utilities are extremely efficient and our hope is to keep utility costs low.  Are you looking into using green energy for utilities? Yes. We will be using motion activated LED lighting, solar options, and are researching ICF construction.When did this project begin? In 2010 the master plan survey identified the needIn 2018 we hired UNH (at no cost to the tax payers) to determine if there was a need in Wakefield for this building.  The team from UNH presented their findings to the selectmen in August of 2019. You can view that video here. https://vimeo.com/355239610 After approval from the selectmen to continue on with our project we started working with Harriman architect firm that conducted a feasibility study for us. This was again at a zero cost to the tax payers. In January of 2022 the selectmen approved Warrant article 2 to be passed through to the budget committee. The budget committee approved warrant article 2 on a vote of 8-4 in favor. Your vote is important! We need your support at the deliberative session on February 5th @ 9am.

8:00 AM - 4:00 PM    Multi-generational Community Center - UNH NEEDS ASSESMENT
Vote yes on Article #2 Multi-Generational Community CenterHow will this impact my taxes? The cost of the building will have a tax impact of $.31/thousand.  Example: The median residential land and building value in Wakefield is $242,250.  Resulting in an impact of $77.52/per year.Will this require more staff? If any additional staff is needed we plan to pay for them with self-sustaining programs.Will it cost more to operate and maintain this facility than the current building? A bigger building may cost more to operate but it's anticipated that these costs will be offset with revenue from various programs. ICF construction and LED lighting utilities are extremely efficient and our hope is to keep utility costs low.  Are you looking into using green energy for utilities? Yes. We will be using motion activated LED lighting, solar options, and are researching ICF construction.When did this project begin? In 2010 the master plan survey identified the needIn 2018 we hired UNH (at no cost to the tax payers) to determine if there was a need in Wakefield for this building.  The team from UNH presented their findings to the selectmen in August of 2019. You can view that video here. https://vimeo.com/355239610 After approval from the selectmen to continue on with our project we started working with Harriman architect firm that conducted a feasibility study for us. This was again at a zero cost to the tax payers. In January of 2022 the selectmen approved Warrant article 2 to be passed through to the budget committee. The budget committee approved warrant article 2 on a vote of 8-4 in favor. Your vote is important! We need your support at the deliberative session on February 5th @ 9am. Please make sure you are registered to vote prior to the meeting.

We are now accepting registrations for Session 1 of ASP. (First day of school-Christmas Break) Program Description: There are 30 spaces available for Wakefield Residents in grades K-6th. Transportation will be provided daily from the school to the Recreation Department by school transportation. The A.S.P. will be open Monday – Friday, 3pm – 5:30pm from the first day of school to the last day of the school year. ASP will be closed on school vacations, snow days, or teacher workshop days. If the school has early dismissal for snow days ASP will be open as long as possible to accommodate parents. We reserve the right to close ASP early in the event of serious snow storms. ASP will be open on early release days @ the regular daily rate.  Full Time/Part Time: We will try our best to accommodate parents by offering a part-time option to our program. Parents will be able to pay a daily rate to have their children attend the ASP but they will need to specify the days the children will be in attendance at the time of registration.  Fees: Payments will be due every Monday. We require a two week notice if you are planning to withdraw your child from the ASP.   1 FULL TIME CHILD$60 per week2FULL TIME CHILDREN$85 per week3 FULL TIME CHILDREN$110 per week1 PART TIME CHILD$20 per day2 Part Time Children$30 per day 3 Part Time Children$40 per day Attendance: Please make sure to call the Rec at 522-9977 ahead of time if your child will not be attending the program on a certain day. You will not receive a refund if your child misses a day of the ASP. If your child is absent from school they will not be allowed to attend ASP.  Transportation: The school bus will be transporting the students from the school to the Recreation Department where members of our staff will be waiting. Your child will need to send in a note the first day of school informing the teacher. If your child will be attending ASP on a part-time basis you will need to alert your teacher of the days that they will be attending. 0Sign out Details: ASP ends at 5:30pm. If we are to dismiss camp at another location, you will be notified. Children must be signed out by a parent/guardian or person listed as a “pick up person” on their registration form. Staff members are required to request a picture ID from parents or persons they do not recognize. Please make sure anyone listed to pick your child up from ASP is aware of this policy. Staff will not allow any child to leave with someone unless they have a picture ID and are on the pickup list. If you would like to permit your child to walk or ride their bike home from ASP you will need to sign the walker/bike rider portion of the registration form.  Late Pick-Up Policy: ASP ends at 5:30PM. All children must be picked up on time! We have no overtime in our budget and staff must be paid for all hours worked. Any fines must be paid before your child returns to ASP. You will be assessed the following fines if we need to stay late: 1st time warning After 5:30pm $5 After 5:40pm $10 After 5:45pm $15 $5 each additional 5 minutes! Outrageous, isn’t it?! We think so too; however we cannot be waiting for children to be picked up. The fee is a fine, a fine we do not ever want to collect. We would prefer you to pick your child up on time. This fine will not be assessed in cases of family emergencies or legitimate circumstances. In these cases, please call the Recreation Department at 603-522-9977. As we stated before, we hope never to collect a single fine. Please be on time!  Clothing requirements: Participants will be required to wear appropriate clothing at all times while at ASP. During the winter months please make sure your child has appropriate clothing to play outside. (Snow pants, boots, gloves, hats, etc.) Your child will have an assigned locker if you would like to send a bag of extra winter clothes to be left at the Rec during the week.   Daily Activities: Once all students have been dropped off at the Rec Department we will offer a daily snack and rest time before our next activity. We will spend time at the local playgrounds, doing arts & crafts, playing board games, and participating in group games. We will also provide a quiet time for your children to do their homework daily.  Personal Items: Counselors reserve the right to confiscate any electronic devices until the end of the day if these items become a problem. Squirt guns, toy guns, stuffed animals, and all personal toys or sports equipment should be left at home. Please do not send your child to ASP with large sums of money. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items! We also ask that children leave their cell phones at home. If you prefer your child to carry a cell phone to communication with you then we will need the campers to follow all the rules regarding the use of cell phones during the program. If the phone becomes a problem our staff reserves the right to confiscate the device until the end of the day.  Snack: We will provide 1 snack daily. You are welcome to send along extra snacks from home in your child’s bag. Please make sure they have a refillable water bottle in their bag that they will be able to use at ASP.  Lost & Found: If your child loses something please check the lost & found box located inside the Recreation Department building.  Head Lice “No Nit” Policy: A child who is found to have lice or nits will be sent home for at least 24 hours after treatment is completed. Removal of ALL lice and nits is required before returning to camp.  Medication Policy: Children are not allowed to bring medication with them or in their belongings to camp. Staff is not allowed to administer medication. We will allow emergency medication to be brought to camp such as EpiPens and inhalers. They may be kept in a child’s backpack, but must be labeled with campers first and last name. Parents must indicate their child’s need for emergency medication on their registration form.  Field Trips: We may take trips to local parks or nature trails. Our “Rec Express” is available to transport children to and from surrounding areas. You will be notified if we plan to attend any type of field trip. On early release days field trips may be scheduled. Certain trips may require extra payments. You will be alerted well in advance if we plan any outings.  Policies: The Rec Department reserves the right to cancel any program, event, or activity due to insufficient registration or for any other reason preventing a quality activity.  Discipline Policy: It is our goal to provide a physically and emotionally safe place for all participants. We ask participants to respect themselves, others, and our environment, by following the rules and instructions given during trips/activities and using appropriate language. Inappropriate behavior will be addressed immediately. Consequences may include participants being sent home, restricted from transportation, and/or suspended from future activities without a refund. We have very strict hands off policy. Any fighting or other unsafe behavior may result in immediate dismissal from Recreation Programs.  *If a child’s behavior continues to be a problem, a parent conference will be arranged and child’s participation may be in jeopardy. We reserve the right to remove any child from our program if behavior is continuously a problem.
