Safekey for the 2020-21 school year is currently suspended. 

Safekey is a before- and after-school recreational enrichment program held at all Henderson elementary schools. This fun-filled program focuses on crafts, games and special activities as an alternative while parents work. The program offers a variety of stimulating activities designed to help your child grow socially, emotionally and physically, as well as homework time and a snack. Safekey provides milk by way of the USDA Special Milk Program through a grant from the Nevada Department of Education.


Safekey follows the Clark County School District calendar and is offered 6:45am-7am to 8:45am-9am, and from school dismissal to 6pm. Program start and end times vary based on school bell times. Contact the Youth Enrichment office in advance for more information or to confirm start/end times. School bell times are set by the Clark County School District and are subject to change at the district’s discretion.
