    All families who utilize the Extended Day Program will be charged an annual registration fee of $60.00 per family.

    AM Extended Day:

    Flat rate of $4.00 per PS-8 student regardless of drop-off time (7:00 a.m. – 7:30 a.m.)
    Flat rate of $2.00 per Preschool student regardless of drop-off time (7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.)
    *  Therefore, Preschool students dropped off before 7:30 a.m. pay $6.00 total.

    PM Extended Day:

    Rate: $5.00 per hour for the 1st child / $4.00 per hour for each additional child
    Billing is logged in 15 minute increments after a one hour minimum.
    Students must be picked up by 6:00 p.m.*

    Ex: One student is in extended day for 2.5 hours = $12.50
    Ex: Two siblings are in extended day for 2.5 hours = $22.50
    Ex: Two siblings are in extended day for 30 minutes = $9.00

    *Please make sure to sign your child out with the Extended Day Supervisor or you will be billed until 6:00 p.m.

    ** Students not picked up by 6:00 p.m. will be charged an additional $2.00 per minute/per child

    *** Children will be prohibited from participating in the program if they are picked up past 6:00 p.m. on three occasions. This policy will be enforced immediately upon the third violation of the pick up time. 
  • Students who have NOT pre-registered for extended day

    We understand that sometimes issues occur that might require a family not pre-registered in the Extended Day Program to utilize the after-school services. If such a situation arises the family will be charged the non-registered hourly rate. If the family uses the program a second time, the annual family registration fee will be automatically billed to the family’s FACTS account. In addition, the school will require the family to complete the Extended Day Paperwork. This policy is for the safety of all students. Families using the program but failing to return their registration paperwork will be billed at the non-registered rate (listed below) and doing so continuously will result in additional sanctions. 

    AM Extended Day:

    Flat rate of $6.00 per student regardless of drop-off time (7:00 a.m. – 7:30 a.m.)
    Flat rate of $3.00 per Preschool student regardless of drop-off time (7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.)
        *  Therefore, Preschool students dropped off before 7:30 a.m. pay $9.00 total.

    PM Extended Day:
     
    Rate: $6.00 per hour for each child
    Students must be picked up by 6:00 p.m.*
    Billing is tallied in 15 minute increments after a two hour minimum.

Payment

Payments are processed through FACTS, an automatic withdrawal system. You will receive a monthly statement prior to your deduction being made. If you have any questions about the billing please feel free to contact the school office or Mandy Root.

Attendance

Attendance will be taken each day for the child’s safety and school security. If your child is ill and will not be in Extended Day, please share this information when you report the absence to the school’s Health Coordinator.  The Student Health Coordinator’s number is 419-866-9051.

Drop Off Procedures

Students will be dropped off at the front of the building by the extended day door. Parents are to wait until students are let into the building. The staff will take their temperature before they are allowed to enter the building and will be sent back to the car if they register a fever over 100.0. Students will wait in the extended day room until 7:30 and then release to their homeroom class. Preschool will be escorted to the preschool extended day room at 7:30.

Pick Up Procedures

The person picking up the child must enter the building and sign the child out with a staff member. If the child is not signed out, you will be billed for the entire 3 hours. If someone other than the person who normally picks up the child will be picking up the child, please notify, in writing, the Director of Extended Day. It is the parent’s responsibility to inform the Extended Day Director, in writing, if there is a specific person who should NOT be allowed to pick up your child. 

Emergencies

Emergency health forms are kept on site. Procedures for an emergency will follow the regular school policy.

Supplies & Clothing

Due to COVID precautions, students will not be allowed to change clothing. Students are allowed to bring a simple toy or game from home provided those items are left in their backpacks during school time. Headphones are not permitted to be used during computer time. Please clearly label all items (uniforms, sweaters, toys, etc.) with your child’s last name. Extended Day is not responsible for lost items. We do not have a lost & found specific to Extended Day.

Discipline

All school policies, administrative procedures, and rules apply to the Extended Day Program. Disciplinary problems will be handled first by a parent conference with the Extended Day Director. Persistent discipline problems are grounds for dismissal. 

  • POKEMON cards are NOT ALLOWED in Extended Day. 
  • iPads/iPods/gaming devices are allowed as long as they do not have a data package and are not connected to the Internet. No pictures or video taking with these devices is allowed. Phones of any kind are not allowed. Staff reserves the right to confiscate the device and will return it to a parent upon pick up. St. Joan of Arc Catholic School is not responsible for any lost or broken devices. Devices are the sole responsibility of the student.
