What grade are you in?
The City of Newark Recreation & Community Services Department Age Policy states that we do not promote children to the next grade level until the official school year begins. Therefore, the Teen Area will not admit incoming 6th graders until the first day of school as a 6th grader. Once school begins in the fall, new 6th graders will be admitted to the Teen Area and recently graduated 12th graders will then be considered adults who will lose their Teen Area privileges. For more information, please contact Stacey Kenison at 578-4409.
