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 dismissal, and closes at 6:15 P.M.

Our Extended Day program has implemented a new contactless attendance system through Procare. This system allows registered families to check-out from Extended Day by using the Procare Connect Childcare App on their mobile device. After registration is complete, you will receive detailed instructions on how to create your Procare Connect account. Please note that you are billed for your Extended Day usage on a bi-weekly basis through your FACTS account.

We are excited to welcome your child(ren) 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 licensing guidelines and continue the ease of using our ProCare sign-out system, all students must be registered for morning and/or afternoon Extended Day before the first day of school. We are pleased to announce that the maximum capacity for afternoon Extended Day has gone back to 180. There is no registration limit or waitlist so our program will go back to the drop-in as needed! Families new to afternoon extended day, will be contacted via email before the first day of school with detailed information about the ProCare app. Returning Extended Day families will not receive this detailed email so once your registration is submitted with the necessary documents, your child can begin using extended day as needed. At this time there are no restrictions related to COVID but we will continue to follow CDC and Virginia Department of Education guidelines as they arise. 

 

The current rates are as follows: 

  • Registration Fee is $100 per student and must be paid at the time of registration via the attached link.

Payment

Registration Fee is $100 per student and must be paid at the time of registration via the attached link. Services will be billed to your FACTS account at an hourly rate or any portion of an hour, per child. Extended Day charges are billed in FACTS bimonthly on the 15th and 30th of each month for the preceding two weeks’ usage.  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. In the event of an emergency or 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 Director and school offices by filling out the Dismissal Change Request Form and submit it prior to 2:30pm the effective day.

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 8th Extended Day. A late fee of $5.00/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.
