 Mission: St. Dominic Catholic School honors the family and takes pride in supporting parents as the primary teachers of their children. In that, we offer an extended care program to assist parents in caring for their children before, during and after the school day. The extended care team is comprised of highly qualified teachers carrying certification in early childhood education all the way through eighth grade. The team works to provide a safe and loving environment where children are valued and cared for. Opportunities for study and play are provided in a supervised setting which functions as an extension of the St. Dominic school day. Therefore, all rules and policies are in compliance with that of the school.

Our Services

  • Before School - 7:00 - 7:30 am: Our doors open at 7:00 am to greet children. We provide supervised play before the school day so that parents can meet their work schedule obligations. Children in K3 through K5 are sent to their classrooms at 7:30 am. Older children are either sent outside or to their classrooms depending on the month.
  • During School: We provide care for children in K3 and K4 at the time opposite of when they are in the classroom. Children are able to eat lunch together in the middle of the day. Both AM and PM children are offered a peanut free snack.
  • After School - 2:45 - 5:45 pm: After school care exists for all children at the close of the school day. Students in grades 3 - 8 are offered a supervised silent study time in addition to structured play offered to the younger children.

Hours of Operation: 7:00 am - 5:45 pm

Schedules

  • Thursdays: Families submit a schedule to the extended care team via email or through the form available online by the Thursday before the week of services. This helps the team determine staffing and supplies. When families use extended care without submitting time, it is considered "unscheduled."

  • Vacations/Absences: If you child become ill during their time in extended care, parents will be notified as is standard protocol with the school. If you have kept your child home, please make sure to contact the extended care team in addition to the school office.

  • Changes: If a change needs to be made to your planned extended care schedule, please contact the extended care team as soon as possible. Families will be credited if there is a snow day or school cancellation.

Snack & Lunch

Extended care children eat their lunches in the extended care room. Each child is asked to bring a cold lunch. We ask that you send food that is easy for your child to eat. Milk is available from the school for a fee. If you child prefers a juice box, please send the juice box with your child's lunch. Extended care will also provide a mid-morning and after school snack.

Extended care is a peanut-free zone!

Scheduling and Billing

All extended care schedules and payments are due by 3:30 pm on the Thursday before the week of services. In the case of a shortened week, the schedule is due by 3:30 pm on the second last day of school in that week prior to care.

Scheduling and billing are done at the same time each week. The schedule and pre-payment holds your child's space in extended care each week. This allows flexibility to serve all families should the need arise. If the schedule is not received on time, the team will determine that no care is needed. Unscheduled space cannot be guaranteed.

Policies

  • As an extension of the school, all policies and expectations outlined in the Parent and Student Handbook will be upheld by the extended care team.

  • The safety and security of our children is paramount. All parents are to use the buzzer to gain entry into the building. Parents should report to the school office during school hours to identify themselves. Parents and students are not to allow anyone into the building at any time regardless of whether they are familiar.

  • The extended care team will not permit access to the building for parents or students to gather forgotten homework or supplies. Please do not ask them to open classroom doors.

  • When picking up a child from extended care, please make face time with one of the extended care team members in addition to following check-out procedures.

  • Families will be charged for schedule hours. If a a child should miss school on a scheduled day or be at an extra-curricular activity during the time when they should be in extended care, there will still be a charge. Please contact the extended care team if your child is sick. Please make every effort to follow your submitted weekly schedule.

  • Extended care provide a "quiet study time" for the children but is not responsible if homework is not completed. That is the responsibility of the student.
