Frequently Asked Questions
Signing Up & Paying
Do I need to sign up for Extended Care?
How much does it cost and what are my payment options?
There are two options: unlimited monthly flat rate or hourly drop in. The unlimited flat rate option ($440/month) requires an automated monthly electronic bank withdrawal pre-payment, using this authorization ACH form. Months with 5 or more weekdays without school are pro-rated.
If you do not enroll in this unlimited flat rate option, you will pay the hourly drop in rate ($12.50 per hour) that is invoiced at the end of each month.
How do I find out about the Enrichment Class schedule?
Who do I tell when my child needs to go to after-care?
What should I do if I have a last minute change?
An email to your child’s teacher is best. You can also copy the front office and/or extended care director. All children not collected from the front steps within 10 minutes of dismissal time are automatically brought to Extended Care and signed in. There is never a scenario where your child is on the front steps waiting for you for longer than 10 minutes.
What do I do if someone other than myself or other authorized person is picking up my child?

Extended care ends at 6:00 pm every day, except for a few Fridays when we end at 4:00 pm before a holiday break.
