Pre/After Care

St. Jude provides pre and after school care every full day that school is in session.  Students may be dropped off and picked up in the school cafeteria.  Precare is a relaxed time for coloring, reading, quiet games, and visiting with friends.  Students in aftercare are given a snack, taken outside or to the gym for active play, allowed time to work on homework, and have access to toys, games, puzzles and structured activities throughout the afternoon.  No aftercare is offered on half-days.  Hours for the program are as follows:

 

                        Pre care           7:00AM-8:15AM

                        After care        3:00PM-5:30PM

 

All students will be electronically checked in/out of pre/after care system using a family code or fingerprint.  Check-in and out using the computers in the cafeteria. Charges are accumulated throughout the month.  An attendance log and invoice for payment for the previous month’s charges is sent home at the start of the new month.

 

To best provide for the needs of our students at various ages and simplify the billing process for our families we are implementing the following changes to for the 2015/2016 school year.   We have switched to flat-rate billing for the first and second children in a family.  There will be no additional charge for families with more than two children attending pre/aftercare on the same day.
