St. Joseph Extension Program is designed to be a place where a child can play and grow in a well-organized, yet flexible environment. Parents have the security of knowing that their child is in a safe and supervised program.
St. Joseph Extension Program reflects the philosophy of St. Joseph Elementary School and derives its existence from the school.
St. Joseph Extension Program is designed to meet the needs of the child. Activities include the following:
Snack/Social Time/Outdoor Play Homework/Study Period Indoor/Outdoor Recreation, Arts and Crafts & Special Events as planned
“Registered” Fee (per child):
Morning: $6.00 per hour per child
Afternoon: $6.00 per hour per child
A non-refundable registration fee of $80.00 per family is required with proper registration forms. All forms are due by a specific date. If forms are received after this date, the fee for registration will be $90.00 per family. Each family will be billed accordingly.
As stated in the school handbook, students who are not picked up within 10 minutes of school dismissal must be placed in extended care. Any student checked into extended care by the faculty after the 10-minute dismissal period will be automatically billed by the extension program. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Billing is based on whole-hour increments, with the following exception:
12:00 dismissals: children will be checked into the extension program by the faculty by 12:10. An hour charge will automatically be applied for the 12:10-1:00 time period.
There is a 10-minute grace period on every hour AFTER the first billing increment of each day. For example, you would not be billed for the 4 – 5 p.m. hour if you picked up your child before 4:10 p.m. [The 10-minute grace period for billing does not apply at the beginning of the day’s program because it coincides with the school-wide 10-minute dismissal period.]
For our records and your child’s safety, it is imperative that you sign IN in the mornings and OUT in the evenings. ONLY PARENTS AND AUTHORIZED ADULTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO SIGN CHILDREN OUT.
“Non-Registered” Fee (per child):
Morning: $8.00 per hour per child
Afternoon: $8.00 per hour per child
For those who choose not to register in the program, drop-in is welcome.
All extended care payments are must be paid electronically through FACTS Management on the 20th of each month. Cash and checks are not accepted. Hours and dues will be calculated by the fifth of every month, and each FACTS account will be adjusted to withdraw on the 20th for previous months charges. If a family fails to register for extended care and a student is signed in as a “drop- in”, the charge for the drop-in hour(s) will be automatically deducted from the families bank using their FACTS tuition account on the 20th of the month following the dates that the charges were incurred.
The extension program is open until 6:00 p.m., except on those special days listed. Any time after 6:00 p.m. or 4:30 p.m. on special days, or 12:10 on days when no extended care is provided is considered AFTER HOURS. The AFTER HOURS fee is $5.00 per minute per child. There will be no exceptions. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you have someone that you can call in the event you will be unable to pick up your child by the 6 p.m. closing time. After hour fees will be billed monthly with your regular statement. If you are late more than 3 times, the rate increases to $10.00/minute per child.
