FOR WORKING MOMS & DADS
AFTER SCHOOL CARE PROGRAM INFORMATION:
The Nativity After Care Program will begin on September 4th for the 2015-2016 school year. This program is held Monday through Friday from 2:30-6:00P.M. It is held in the school Library and Room 102, which is across from the Library. This program will NOT be held on half days.
We will provide snack daily for the children and Monday through Thursday and there will be quiet/homework time for students to work on homework or study. During homework/quiet time we are happy to assist the children if there is difficulty with homework, but we cannot spend the entire time helping one child due to the amount of children in the program. Please note: the After Care Program is not meant to be a tutoring service. We will closely monitor K-2nd grade students as they complete their homework and we expect students in 3rd grade and higher to independently complete their homework, unless assistance is needed. ALL children WILL WORK on homework assignments, UNLESS you tell us otherwise. Any child who is not completing homework at After Care or has finished homework is expected to be respectful while other children finish their work. Those children will have the opportunity to participate in quiet activities.
At the After School Program students are expected to behave as they would in school, as each child and parent have signed and returned the behavior/discipline guideline policy to the school office. The Olweus: My School Rules About Bullying, are also expected to be followed and the consequences will follow the guidelines set by the Olweus committee. If children are unable to follow the guidelines set by the school, children may be suspended from services of the After Care Program.
It is very important that both the classroom teacher and After Care supervisors know when to expect your child at the After Care Program. We ask that you provide us with a weekly or monthly schedule for your child. If you child is only attending on occasion we ask that you provide the classroom teacher and After Care with a note regarding your child’s attendance for that day. Following this procedure will help us make sure we have appropriate adult coverage for the children at After Care. Thank you for your cooperation!
The fees for the 2014-2015 After Care Program have changed from the previous year. On full days of school the prices are as follows:
$5.00 per child hourly rate
$2.50 per child half hour rate
Billing will ONLY be done in the above increments. If you come anytime after the hour or half hour, you will be billed in to the next hour. For example: If you arrive at 4:03 to pick up your child you will be billed for the next half hour.
To assist in the billing procedures it is important that you properly sign your child out every day. We will explain this to you the first time your child is picked up at After Care. Billing is done monthly by the Business Office. We are unable to answer any billing questions at After Care. Please address all billing questions to Lisa Sears-Ricotta in the Business Office, 662-9330, ext.111.
