Before- and after-school care is available; this consists
of structured play, organized activities by age group, and supervised homework
time. Before-school care is offered from 7 to 8 a.m. After-school care is
offered for pre-kindergarten and half-day kindergarten from 11:45 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. and for full-day kindergarten through fifth grade from 2:45 to 5:30 p.m.
The service may be used routinely by enrolling in monthly extended-day care.
users of the extended-day program are accommodated only when space is available and should give the school as
much notice as possible when requesting a reservation. Doing so will enhance
the likelihood of securing space for the desired date. All charges will appear
on the monthly statement with a monthly pre-paid charge for regular users and a
daily charge for part-time users whether on a scheduled or as-needed basis.
Anyone not canceling by close of school the day preceding the reservation date
will be charged at the regular rate. If you have any questions about the
extended-day program after reading this section of the handbook, call the
be left for care before 7 a.m. under any circumstances. Parents bringing
children for before-school care must sign the daily log on the porch
and establish that there is an extended-day worker on duty. Parents picking up
a child from the after-school program must sign him/her out on the daily log. Failure
to do so is in violation of school rules and will be reported to the
administration for action.
care is primarily supervised play. After-school care is more structured,
including a thirty-minute period set aside for doing homework. Children are
expected to have the proper supplies, pencils, paper, and books necessary for
doing their homework; students will not be allowed to return to their
classrooms during this period. The extended-day program staff supervises
homework time. However, it is not the staff's' responsibility to see that a
child's homework is completed and checked; further attention will be needed at
home. (see Homework)
