Oswegoland Park District is proud to announce our use of ePACT- an online system to collect and manage our participants’ emergency information and waiver releases. This replaces our traditional Health and Emergency form. 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. Please contact the Registration Coordinator if you have any questions. 630.554.4064
We understand that busy families have changing schedules. We make every effort to accommodate new enrollments. To ensure the safety of all participants a full program day will be needed to make arrangements for their arrival.

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.
