Friday, April 5, 2024

Good morning,

Unfortunately, Community Services is without power.  Due to the power outage, all our programming, beforecare, aftercare, preschool, and Pre-K for Friday, April 5, 2024 are canceled.  We apologize for this inconvenience and will attempt to schedule a make-up for any missed classes.  The pool and fitness center will be open as of 7:30 am.

Thank you for your understanding.





After careful consideration, we have decided to open registration for spring and summer programs on Sunday, March 31st. We understand that this falls on Easter Sunday, but we believe it is important to maintain our usual registration process and keep summer camp registration separate.

Program Registration Postponed

Due to widespread power outages, Community Services has decided to postpone program registration online tonight at 8:00 pm and in person/over the phone tomorrow at 8:00 am.  We will evaluate the situation tomorrow and post an update.


Additionally, due to the cancellation of Cape Elizabeth schools on Monday, March 25th, Cape Care preschool, PreK, beforecare, and aftercare are also canceled.  All Community Services Youth programs are canceled and all Adult programs before 4:00 pm are canceled.  We will update the post if any evening programs are impacted.  Be safe!
