Fall Break 2021

Fall Back and Relax!

Break out your favorite sweater and grab yourself a Pumpkin Spice Latte. AYS is
back for Fall Break, and we’re here to provide a safe environment where all your kids have
to worry about is having fun and being themselves and all you have to worry about is handling
your personal responsibilities. It’s time to “fall” back, relax, and let AYS take it from here.
