EXTENDED CARE​

New For the 2021-2022 School Year

Monroe County Christian School provides before and after school care for parents who need a safe Christian environment for their children beyond the regular school hours. 

Before School Care

Before Care is provided from 7:00-8:00. At 8:00, the students are picked up from the lunch area by their classroom teacher's. 

During Before Care, students are provided an opportunity to play board games, cards, puzzles, and assorted tabletop activities. Parents are welcome to send in small breakfast items with their child. Students should have time to consume any breakfast items by 7:45. At that time, they will be asked to put away any remaining food. 

Students who enter the building before 7:45 will be charged for Before Care. 

Rates: $3.00 per morning, arriving at any time before 7:45

School Children

After School Care

After Care is provided on regular session school days, unless there is an early dismissal due to weather. After the normal 15 minute pick-up window each day after school, any students still in the building will automatically be placed in After Care. There is no need to register. 

 

Hours are 3:00-5:30 on regular full days. 2:15-5:30 on early dismissal Wednesdays. 

No After Care is available on the first or last calendar day of school year. Any other special dismissals, without After Care, will be noted on the school calendar. 

After Care is designed to offer time to exercise and play, a chance to have a snack, and finish some homework, if needed. Playground time will be given to exercise and socialize with friends. Time will be set aside for a light snack. Parents are encouraged to send snacks when students are likely to stay beyond 3:30. 

After some play time and time for a snack, remaining students are provided with a space to work on homework, if needed. For younger students and those who do not need homework time, tabletop activities will be provided. These may include board games, puzzles, cards, small building sets, coloring books, etc. 

Parents (or designated emergency pick-ups) must enter the building to sign a student out of After Care. 

Rates: $2.00 per any part of a half hour or $4.00 hourly

Billing

Billing for any Before and After Care services is done on a weekly basis. Invoices for the previous week will be generated early each week, for the previous week's charges. Each invoice should be paid in full by that Friday to ensure continued use of Before and After Care services. Any family falling two weeks behind may not use the services again until paid in full.
