Each family is billed at the end of each month for before/after care used that month.
Payment is due when the monthly bill is sent.  All payments must be by check, made payable to SJRS.  You will be credited (within the school year) for days not used, due to illness or change of plans.  There is no credit for “partial” days used.  This program is only offered on days when school is in session (NOT when we have a delayed opening, early dismissal, or during vacations.)

Please call the child’s homeroom teacher, or the Afterschool coordinator (ext. 21), if you need to add/delete a child from the program, or when someone other than a custodial parent will pick up your child.  We will not let your child leave with someone we do not know.

Please have all pickup persons prepared to show us a photo ID.

The After School portion of the program ends at 5:30 PM. A $1.00 per minute penalty is assessed, if children are not picked up on time.  Please be considerate and punctual.  If an emergency arises, call school and leave a message – ext. 10.  The After School Staff will check the voicemail for a message from you.
