Online registration for Safekey, a before- and after-school youth enrichment program that is part of the city of Las Vegas’ Strong Schools initiative, is now open.

Currently, only students in kindergarten through third grade may attend Safekey, and only on the days they receive in-person instruction. Safekey will not be offered on Wednesdays as there is no in-person instruction.

There is an annual $20 registration fee per participant per account for these programs. The daily cost is $7 for before-school attendance and $10 for after-school.

Financial aid for Safekey may be provided by Las Vegas Urban League, Desert Regional Center, Inter-Tribal Council of Southern Nevada, Inc. and Employer Child Care Reimbursement for families that qualify. These organizations provide families with a certificate or agreement as well as instructions on how to apply funds to a city Safekey account.

For more information on the financial aid process, call 702-229-CARE (2273).

Registration will be available until the end of March for the 70 sites in the city; however, only sites with sufficient enrollment will open. The city will communicate with registered families regularly to notify them of the status of their school’s site.

Registration fees will be refunded if a site does not open. To register, click here.
