Extended Care Program

 

At St. Joseph Catholic School in Anderson, we provide afterschool care, by South Carolina Department of Social Services (DSS) certified employees, to our students in grades PK-8th, from 2:30 - 5:30P.M. for a small fee.

St. Joseph Catholic School offers an Extended Care Program to provide supervised care at school when parents are unable to pick their student up at the school dismissal time. The Extended Care Program only operates when the school term is in session.  Therefore, it is not open during school breaks and holidays.
 

Daily Activities and Programs:

Students need time after school to relax and socialize, therefore we include activities in our extended care schedule to meet this need.  There is also age-appropriate homework time for students in grades 1-8 included in our schedule. All students are required to participate in the daily study/homework time. PK-K5 are able to play quiet games while older students do homework.
 

Discipline:

As an integral part of St. Joseph Catholic School, the Extended Care Program adheres to the policies set forth in the St. Joseph Catholic School Parent and Student Handbook. If a problem arises between or among students, the teacher in charge should be advised.  No parent should seek out and reprimand a student. By contacting the teacher in charge, the chain of command is respected, and we avoid situations causing greater challenges.
 

Fees:

St. Joseph Catholic School Extended Care Program is not subsidized by the parish or school and is therefore totally dependent upon fees. The registration fee of $30.00 per family is to be paid and submitted with the Extended Care Registration Form to Mrs. Holly Hunter.  Families are charged only when their student attends Extended Care.
 

  Attendance is recorded by a parent’s signature at pick up, so signatures are required.
 

Any Elementary student not picked up by 2:30 P.M.,or any Middle school student not picked up by 3:15 will be part of the 15-minute transition period leading to the Extended Care Program. Extended Care Program fees began at 3:30 pm for middle school students and their younger siblings. Fees for PK- Elementary school students (without a middle school sibling) will began at 2:30 P.M.
 

On the one day a month when school dismisses at 1:45P.M., Extended Care Program fees will begin at 2:30 P.M.

After Hours Fee:

Staff are only employed until 5:30 P.M. For pick-up after 5:30 P.M., a late fee of $5.00 per minute is assessed. In cases of an emergency or unavoidable delay, contact the school office at 864-760-1619. This call does not negate the late fee, but it will eliminate needless worry for your student and for those members who are responsible for the safety of the student.
