Before and After School Care Programs

Dear Parents,

Before School Care is offered beginning at 7:00 a.m., and after school care is offered from 3:10 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for students enrolled in grades PS-8.  Schedule Calendars will be due the first Thursday of the prior month and payment is due the last Thursday of the prior month.  The cost of care is as follows:

Before School Care: 

  • $4.00 per child pre-registered
  • $5.00 per child drop-in (between 7:00 a.m. and the start of the school day)

After School Care:

  • One or two children per family = $4.00 per hour each (5:00 – 5:30 = $2.00 each)
  • Three children per family = $10.00 per hour (5:00 – 5:30 = $5.00)
  • Four+ children per family = $12.00 per hour (5:00 – 5:30 = $6.00)
  • Drop-ins: $5.00 per child, per hour (5:00-5:30 = $2.50 per child) **Please contact the school office to confirm space is available.** Payment is due at pick-up or the following school day.

Anytime before school is billed as one hour.  The 50 minute interval between dismissal, 3:10 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. is billed as one hour.

If your children will be picked up at different times due to extra-curricular activities or appointments, please calculate charges at $4.00 per hour for each child.  No credit is given for absence or missed portions of scheduled care during the pre-registered period. Once payment for the upcoming month is received (due the last Thursday of the month prior) NO CREDITS WILL BE ISSUED FOR ANY REASON.  You will have approximately three weeks between turning in the calendar and payment to make any changes that you may need.

Charges for late pick-up:

Pick-up after the pre-registered scheduled time results in an additional cost.  This charge applies after 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. scheduled pick-up times.

Each child = $5.00 per hour with a minimum $5.00 charge

Please add the additional charges to your next scheduled payment.

Charges for pick-up after closure (5:30 p.m.)

Each child = $5.00 per fifteen (15) minute interval with a minimum charge of $5.00

Please add the additional charges to your next scheduled payment.

Any fraction of one hour, except for the period of 5:00 – 5:30 p.m., is considered an hour of service.  Your child will be available for release at the scheduled pick-up time.  Please notify the After School Care staff (616-334-5106) if you will be late to prevent any additional interruption of scheduled activities.

Families will provide an after school snack and/or beverage for their child/ren.  Care will be offered on regular full day sessions.  No care is offered on half-days, days off, snow days, or other emergency closure situations.

Please note that all prior year BSC/ASC fees must be current to register for the 2017-18 school year.
