Dear STM Parents,
We are excited to welcome your child(ren) back to STM's Kindergarten – 8th Grade Extended Day Program (please note PreK is a separate program for which a different registration process has already been completed, therefore you do not need to complete this registration process). In order to adhere to current health department and licensing guidelines, all students must be registered for morning and/or afternoon Extended Day in advance. We are pleased to announce that our maximum capacity for afternoon Extended Day has increased to 120. Registration is on a first come first served basis. Once there are 120 registered students, additional students will be placed on a waitlist. Families will be contacted via email if they have been placed on the waitlist. We continue to ask that families register for Extended Day only if they will be using this service on a consistent and routine basis. This will help to ensure that families who need this service regularly will have space available.
We are excited to announce a rate decrease for Extended Day even as we continue to follow CDC and Virginia Department of Education guidelines to maintain cohorts in Extended Day. Our new lowered rates are as follows:
- Registration Fee is $50 per student and must be paid at the time of registration via the attached link.
- Services will be billed to your FACTS account according to the schedule below:
- 1 child - $9.00 per hour or any portion of an hour
- 2 children - $16.00 per hour or any portion of an hour
- 3 children - $23.00 per hour or any portion of an hour
- 4 children - $30.00 per hour or any portion of an hour
Under current CDC/VDOE guidelines and given our constraints on space and resources, we will not be able to accommodate drop-in Extended Day students. Any child who is not registered for the afternoon Extended Day Program, and is not picked up at dismissal will not be checked into Extended Day and the family’s FACTS account will be charged $5 per minute/per child.
Our Extended Day program will continue to implement our contactless attendance system through Procare. This system allows registered families to check-in and check-out from Extended Day by using the Procare Connect Childcare App on their mobile device. After you complete your registration, you will receive detailed instructions on how to create your Procare Connect account. Please note that you will continue to be billed for your Extended Day usage on a bi-weekly basis through your FACTS account.
If you would like to register for Extended Day, please complete the form accessed via this link or as soon as possible:
To reiterate: When maximum capacity in the afternoon Extended Day program is achieved, you will receive an email stating you are on a waitlist. If you do not receive an email about being on the waitlist, your child/ren are registered for Extended Day. Before the first day of school, registered families will receive a detailed email with instructions on how to download and input information into the Procare App.
We are looking forward to seeing you next month!
Director, Extended Day
