Trumansburg Community School Day Program

The Town of Ulysses Recreation Department is resuming programming for 7 and 8th grade students who will not have full-week, in person classes during the school year. This program is designed to provide academic support, recreation, and safe socialization for middle school students that are participating in the hybrid school program or virtual learning.
TCSDP will provide supplemental school day programs for 7 and 8th grade students Monday-Thursday, with an additional Friday option,  in 6 week sessions throughout the remainder of the winter part of the school year at the American Legion in Trumansburg.. Each day students will be dropped off at 8:00am and picked up at 1:00pm, to receive academic support and recreation opportunities throughout the morning.
TCSDP will be open to all families. There will be a $35.00 fee each week, per program section, however we are offering a sliding scale or full financial assistance for families in need. This fee can be paid in full or on a weekly basis.
SESSIONS: (Same days, but different times)
There will be two program sessions per week (Monday/Tuesday and Wednesday/Thursday).  Beginning January 15th, there will be a Friday program option as well from 9am - 1pm. Families may register for both programs, plus Friday and attend five  days per week if needed/necessary.  The program is only offered when school is in session.  The program will not be open on holidays and during school vacations/days off.

The Two-day  sessions will coincide with the color-day system at the middle-school for children enrolled in the two-day per week in-person schedule.. If you have questions about what color-day your child is please ask.  For some 7th grade students, please let the program know if your child needs to be picked up at 1:15 to accommodate the individual class schedule.
Gold : Will attend on Mondays and Tuesdays, 8 am-1:00 pm
Blue: Will attend on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 am-1:00 pm
Friday program:
The Friday program is designed to assist students with the asynchronous class day.  This program will feature academic assistance, recreation and team-building activities weekly from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.
During the day students will have the following options/activities:
  • All participants will be directed to complete all incomplete assignments on BrightSpace and I-ready, throughout the day to ensure that students remain up-to-date with his/her classes.  The middle school has directed that all students attend 20 minutes of each class throughout the day.  The staff will assist students with remaining on schedule and logging into each class.
  • Recreation opportunities will be offered and provided by staff throughout the program day during breaks and when particular classes are not in session.  Physically distant games and activities include badminton, pickleball, spikeball, and adventure activities.
  • We encourage participants to pack a lunch or order lunch from the school lunch program. There will also be bottled water and single-serving snacks available.
