Child care is available in the Summer each day from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. and 2:45 – 6:00 p.m. After school care is available for full-day students only. You will be charged for the care you have signed up for each month even if your child is not present. These rates are calculated for Summer Session I and Summer Session II. If you need additional child care beyond your regular scheduled time you will be billed at an hourly rate of $5.50 for that day or if it’s throughout the month your scheduled monthly rate will be changed for that month. If you need drop-in care, please contact to the school to check on space availability. Drop-in care will be billed at the hourly rate or monthly rate depending on days and times used. A late fee of $1.00 per minute will be charged after 12:45, 2:45 and 6:00 p.m.

Tuition and childcare, however, are prorated so that you are not charged for holidays. No deductions or refunds can be made for illness, holidays, vacations, withdrawal, late entrance, or other absences. If a child is withdrawn for any reason, refunds cannot be made unless said withdrawal is made at the specific request of the school. Your child is placed for the entire summer session which you sign up for. Changes or cancellation cannot be made after you turn in your Registration Form, you will be billed for the session(s), your child is registered for.

Parents will provide lunch and a cloth placemat each day in a lunch box. Parent participation in our healthy snack program is required. Children may not have sweets, candy, cookies at school for snack or lunch. We encourage children to eat healthy, nutritious foods only.
