The registration window for REAL is now open.

  • REAL registration is now open for before and after school care. 
  • Parents will click on the application link to complete the application. 
  • The application must be submitted by email to ESPRegistration@lexingtonky.gov.
  • If applications are submitted after July 30th they may not be able to start the first week of school. 

Changes for the 2021-2022 school year:

  • REAL will no longer have a drop-in rate for students.  Parents sign up for the morning, afternoon or both and pay a weekly fee.
  • Arrival and pick-up for REAL Parents:
    • Arrival and dismissal is a little different than years past . Normally REAL would have parents park and walk in to sign them in/out.
    • REAL has started a new procedure in which parents will text the REAL site phone for pick up and REAL staff will escort students to the appropriate car and checking ID for proper release. 
  • REAL will include all of this information on the confirmation for registration to the parents.
