Before & After School Extended Care


Are you concerned about finding high quality but affordable care for your child before and after school while you're at work?

District 401 can help. We offer BASEC — short for "Before & After School Extended Care" — at both Elmwood and John Mills elementary schools.


Preparing for 2020-21


This coming school year, District 401 will be following the guidance set by the Illinois State Board of Education to start the year safely. These protocols will also be used in our BASEC program.

The implementation plan to return is currently being developed and will be posted on our website when it becomes available. ISBE's guiding document for making the transition to the new school year can be found here:
