Changes in Online Credit Card Processing -- Effective June 30, 2018

posted Apr 10, 2018, 11:43 AM by Nicole Hall

The latest PCI compliance standards require that any site accepting credit card payments uses TLS 1.2 after June 30, 2018. Transport Layer Security (TLS) is the

protocol that allows digital devices, such as computers and tablets, to communicate over the internet securely without the transmission being vulnerable to an outside audience.

The credit card gateway that connects to our registration software is moving towards requiring support of TLS 1.2 earlier than the June 30 deadline, so most likely it will happen sometime in May. At that time, registrations completed online will require customers to run their registrations and payments through an internet browser that supports TLS 1.2. If action is not taken by the customer to enable this new security protocol, credit card transactions WILL FAIL and registration will not be complete.

Please follow the steps provided in the TLS 1.2 Document to ensure a smooth transition. We will keep everyone apprised of the proposed date for the switch. Thank you!

NEW! Boston Red Sox Trip

Love the Red Sox but hate figuring out where to park in Boston? Leave the planning to us! We have purchased 54 tickets to the Boston Red Sox vs. the Houston Astros game (reigning World Champions!) on Saturday, September 8, and we are offering them to the public as a package with transportation. We will board a coach bus at 11:00 am as to give everyone some extra time ahead of the game to explore Boston. The game begins at 4:05 pm, getting us back into Scarborough around 10:30 pm (depending on the game end time). 

Tickets are located in the Right Field Box, Rows G-M -- these are right on the field and next to the bullpen! Trip price includes coach transportation to and from game, driver gratuity, and ticket to game. Purchase four or more spots and get $5 off each person!

Registration for the 2018-19 before-school and after-school child care programs began March 12 and was based on the new proposed start times set to begin August 2018. However, due to the possibility that these start times would probably change, we decided to suspend registration as of Friday, March 16, until a decision was made.

As of Monday, March 26, the decision was made on the start times for the 2018-19 school year and times have been adjusted. 


Grades K-5 -- 8:50 am to 3:15 pm

High School/Middle School -- 8:00 am to 2:25 pm


Those already registered for the 2018-19 school year have until April 8 to make their schedule changes via email (comserv@scarboroughmaine.org) based on the new school schedule. At that point, we will know how many spaces at each site are still available. 

New registrations for the 2018-19 school year will be accepted beginning Monday, April 9. These registrations will need to be completed in person and are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis based on school site availability.
