HUSD and Harmony Elementary are applying to renew the SAFE: 21st Century Community learning Centers Program, for a five year cycle.

After School Program takes time to give back to the community. Read more here.

The Students Achieving in Fun Environments (SAFE) program is funded by Proposition 49 voted on by the citizens of California to provide a safe and nurturing environment for youth following school dismissal. Hemet Unified School District partners with Valley Wide Recreation, (PAL) Police Activities League and other community agencies to provide meaningful afterschool activities.

The SAFE Program provides students in grades first through eighth extended learning opportunities from school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. following regular school days. Activities vary by school, but each program includes these main components:

  • After-School snack
  • Educational and literacy component in content areas
  • Homework time with assistance for clarification
  • Educational enrichment component (visual and performing arts, recreational, physical fitness and prevention activities.)
