In Salida, Friday is a day when many working and non-working parents are looking for worthwhile
activities for their children and when children can be attracted to things they see as fun and useful. With the
help of High Country Bank, the Support Our Schools Salida organization supports the educational programs
of the Salida Public Schools and is a resource for after school and Friday Enrichment child care activities.
SOSS provides funds and referrals for educational programs and activities which have been under-funded by
the normal operating budget. It is the mission of SOSS to provide a referral service and disseminate
information to assist parents and students in obtaining quality child care activities as part of our community’s
Friday Enrichment program.
History of the Friday Enrichment Program
When the 4-day school week first took effect in 2011, the community took an immediate role in stepping up
to offer programs on Fridays. However, this uncoordinated effort produced lots of randomly scheduled,
often competing programs that did not come close to covering a typical parent’s workday. With the
formalization of the Friday Enrichment program with the City of Salida, we have begun addressing these
needs. Friday Enrichment is working to create an environment where programmers can increase enrollment
by working together, stretching our funding by proactive scheduling.
