Saint Michael the Archangel School CARES Program services members of our parish school community who desire before and after
school care for their children (Pre-K through 8th grade).
The program provides professional care, supervision and recreation for our children.
C.A.R.E.S will open at 6:30 am until school begins (8:15 K - 8 and 8:45 PreK) and from (2:45 PreK) 3pm (K-8) until 6pm on day that school is in session. On early dismissal days the
C.A.R.E.S program will begin at the end of that school day. Children need to bring lunch (including drink) on all scheduled early dismissal
days. C.A.R.E.S. is designed to complement the philosophy and values of Saint Michael the Archangel School and its families. There is time
set aside for homework, snacks, outdoor and indoor play, games and movies.
Fees are for the sole support of the program and the school or parish does not subsidize it.
- There is a non-refundable annual registration fee of $25.00 per family.
- The fee is $5.00 per hour, per child, calculated per the number of hours used in the month. Please Note: C.A.R.E.S. ends at 6:00pm. If your child is not picked up by 6:00PM, there will be a late fee of $5.00 for every ten minutes late.
- Payments are due the 15th of the month; if the 15th falls on a weekend then it is due that following Monday. Prompt fee payment is essential for this program to cover both salaries and supplies. ( A $15.00 charge will be assessed for any returned checks.)If a C.A.R.E.S. bill is not paid by the 1st of the next month, the child will not be permitted into C.A.R.E.S. until payment is paid in full.
** Please note: If school closes early for a weather-related or other type of emergency, C.A.R.E.S. will be closed! If there is any delay in opening, there will be no morning C.A.R.E.S.
Drop off and Pick up- Only an adult named on the registration form may pick up your child. There is a sign in ledger for morning children
and sign out ledger for afternoon children that must be signed by all Adults who are dropping off or picking up a child. This ledger is a legal
document and must be signed by an adult, not a child. In addition to the signature of the adult, the time of drop off for morning and the
time of pick up for afternoon is also recorded in the ledger. If the parent doesn’t record the drop off or pick up time the parent will be
charged for the full time.
As always if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. All of us at C.A.R.E.S. are looking forward to a wonderful year. Thank
you for entrusting your child/children to us.
