Extended Day

The Extended Day Program at St. Thomas More Cathedral School provides high quality child care administered by a caring staff before and after school.

The program is available for students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. STM Extended Day opens at 7:00 A.M., closes while the students are in school, reopens at 3:15 P.M. after school is dismissed, and closes at 6:15 P.M.

Program Registration:

All STM families who plan to use the Extended Day program must register each eligible student for the program. The yearly registration fee is $30.00 per child, and hourly fees are assessed for usage. In order to ensure that all required forms are completed and on file at the start of the new school year, we ask families who are interested in using the program (regardless of planned frequency of use) to register their student(s). This means that you must still register your child(ren) even if you only plan to use the program occasionally. Registration can be accomplished by completing the online Incidental Orders form by July 20, 2016. Your adherence to this deadline allows us to have the program up and running by the first day of school in compliance with all licensing requirements.

 To register your child(ren) for the Extended Day Program, please complete the Incidental Orders form, which can be accessed her or found under the "Forms" section of our school website.

Extended Day Hourly Fees: 2016-2017

In addition to the $30.00 per child yearly registration fee, the following hourly fees will apply for the 2016/2017 school year:

  • $7.25 per hour for one child;
  • $12.25 per hour for two children;
  • $15.50 per hour for three children; and
  • $19.25 per hour for four children.
  • You will be charged the full hourly rate for any portion of an hour used.

Payment

Extended Day charges are billed in FACTS bimonthly on the 15th and 30th of each month for the preceding two weeks' usage. Our strong preference is for participating families to pay their bills directly in FACTS, however, the office will accept checks made payable to STM. Absolutely no cash payments will be accepted.

All accounts are due and payable upon receipt. Payments received beyond the due date may be assessed a late fee of either $10.00 or 10% of the total past due, whichever is greater. Lack of payment or consistently delinquent payments may result in suspension of services or dismissal from the program.

Pick-Up & Late Pick-Up Policies

Orderly and prompt pick-up of students from Extended Day is a condition of participation in the program. If there is a change to the student's normal pick-up arrangement (i.e., the student is to go home with another family), please notify the Extended Day and school offices via email in advance.

Late pick-ups will be charged a fee of $3.00 per child per minute after 6:15 P.M. If a family is late in picking up their student(s) in excess of three times, a conference will be required with the Principal. Further tardiness may result in denial of services or dismissal from the program.

While our Pre-K Aftercare program is operated separately from our K through 8 Extended Day program, any students not picked up from Pre-K Aftercare by the 6:00 P.M. close time will be sent to K through 8 Extended Day. A late fee of $3.00/minute will be assessed per pre-K student for pick-ups made after 6:00 P.M. If a family is late in picking up their Pre-K student in excess of three times, a conference with the Principal will be required. Further tardiness may result in denial of services.

Extended Day Scheduled Closures

Extended Day Closures are listed on the STM Calendar, which is found on the front page of our website. If you have any questions, please contact the front office for further assistance.
