Rec Check
What is Rec Check?
Rec Check is a free after-school program for youth grades 1–5 provided at the recreation centers listed below.

When Is It Held?
The program is held on weekdays between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on days when Saint Paul Public Schools has classes in session. Start times may vary due to varying school release times.


What's Offered?
Children participate in a variety of structured, supervised activities, including tutoring sessions, craft-making, reading, and more. To promote health and fitness, staff will engage the youth daily in physical activity. A daily snack is also provided.

Do I Need to Register My Child?
Yes. All sites have limited enrollment. Registration is taken on a first-come, first-served basis, and registration forms need to be completed at a site before a child may attend. Registration cannot be completed online. Rec Check is open for youth who live or attend school in Saint Paul.

How Will I Know if my Child Attends or Not?
Youth are required to check in with Rec Check staff upon arrival and departure. Parents can request to be notified when their child does not check in.

After School Transportation
A change in Minnesota law now allows Saint Paul Public Schools to transport children to two of Saint Paul Parks and Recreation's youth programs, Rec Check as S'more Fun.
  • The recreation center attended must be within the attendance area or transportation area of the school attended and must be more than one mile of walking distance from school.
  • An application for childcare transportation must be completed if the student is attending a recreation center program that is more than one mile from the school but the student's residence is less than one mile from school.
  • The child must attend the recreation center program each day school is in session. A child is not allowed to alternate between home and recreation center locations.
  • Transportation to Saint Paul Parks & Recreation youth programs must be arranged through the school that the child attends. The application form is available from the school office or the Transportation Department website.
  • Transportation to any students' residence from Rec Check or S'more Fun is not provided.
