Extended Care

 

The Extended Care Program is designed to support and supplement the family by providing quality care that promotes the student’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive development through nurturing staff members in a planned environment.

Within a large family environment, the program strives to provide individual attention, security, consistency and fair treatment for students of St. Joseph School.

Though primarily designed to serve the needs of working parents, the Extended Care Program is also available to parents on a part-time or occasional basis, depending on their needs.

Enrollment Procedure

Every family which makes use of the Extended Care Program pays a registration fee of $50.00. Registration begins in May when school registration is held. Checks are to be made payable to St. Joseph School please put “Extended Care” or “E.C.” on memo line.

Fees

Families who use the Extended Care Program are charged according to an hourly fee schedule. The current rate is $6.00 per hour. There is a 10% discount for two or more children. Families are billed monthly.

Homework

Each day a supervised homework period is scheduled. Student provide their own supplies. Tutors from St. Francis may be available for special needs.

After School Sports

Lunch Program

The St. Joseph Hot Lunch program is managed by the Parent Teacher Guild (PTG) and a dedicated group of parent volunteers who bring healthy choices for lunch to our school. We have partnered with Choicelunch to offer lunch on Mon, Tue, Thu, and any Fri when there is no Knights of Columbus hot lunch scheduled. Parents may order, view menus, prepay, and manage their child’s hot lunch at the link below.

You must order your child’s lunch before 9AM of the previous day, e.g. lunches delivered on Thursday must be ordered before 9AM on Wednesday.

Choicelunch is a family of passionate people dedicated to enhancing the lives of families in our communities by offering wholesome, delicious meals that kids love – providing the ultimate experience in ordering and delivery for our parents and schools. At their core, their purpose is to make it simple for busy families to eat better and stress less.

Choicelunch cares about the kids they serve, and their effort to continue to delight them with a great lunch experience is everything. They are committed to finding and using whole, fresh ingredients that are sourced responsibly from local and trusted partners.  They avoid anything artificial or processed, and source antibiotic-free meats and organic produce when it makes sense. They understand parents trust them with an important responsibility.
