Plan B Option
Based on Escondido Elementary School calendar and the Pepper Tree Program Schedule, we have nine “Plan B” days during the 2014-2015 school year. These are days that Escondido Elementary is closed and Pepper Tree will be open for modified hours to facilitate “full day” care of Pepper Tree children. For more information please see our Plan B Program Description.
