ePACT is an online emergency network, where you can securely add, manage, and share your child’s key health and emergency contact details with us. After you register, you’ll receive an email invitation that will guide you through a few quick steps to set up your account and share your child’s information with us. This must be completed before your child can begin the program.
We understand that busy families have changing schedules. We make every effort to accommodate new enrollments. To ensure the safety of all participants, advanced registration is required.
Attendance Adjustments | Schedule Changes
If you need to make adjustments to your schedule, we will accommodate your first attendance change request at no charge. Due to administrative costs, a $15 charge will be assessed for each participation adjustment for the remainder of the school year.

“I wanted to take a minute to thank you for everything you and your team have done for Kid’s Connection. I have had kids enrolled in Junior Kid’s Connection and Kid’s Connection at Old Post for the past three years now. I recommend it to everyone I meet, and am amazed at what a great job everyone there does. A few years ago, my daughter broke her leg and was in a full cast requiring her to be in a wheelchair. Junior Kid’s Connection welcomed her back despite the added physical struggle, and even took her on a field trip to the farm on her first day back! My son who has never been a fan of school, still talks about Junior Kid’s Connection and all he loved there. And now, despite this pandemic, you have found a way to still support the kids and working parents at an incredibly fair price. Thanks for all of the work you and everyone else have put into the program – It is greatly appreciated!” –Maureen
“My husband and I wanted your thank you guys for still offering your program during e-learning. We have both been pushing our employers as much as we can to be able to alternate staying home to take care of our child. We didn’t know what we were going you do this fall if you weren’t going to offer an alternative. Thank you for going above and beyond in providing support to help my child navigate through e-learning. You guys are life savers. Thank you again. Truly. You have no idea.” – Tom & Carrie
