Extended Care

Extra school care is a necessity for some families to be able to attend St. James. It is our intention to offer as flexible and cost effective a program as we can.

Before School

Before school care begins is available beginning at 7:30 a.m. There is a $5.00/day charge for any portion of the hour until class begins. 

After School

After school care is offered from 3:30 – 6:00 p.m. on every full-day of school. There is no after school care on early dismissal days or any school cancellations.

We have three options to purchase after-school care.  They are:

Semester Pass  Full-time access for the semester until 6:00 p.m. The semester pass costs $1800. Contact Dot Minogue to purchase.

Daily Pass  Maintain a bank by depositing at $50 in an account, which will be debited at the daily rate of $5/30 minutes. One bank can be used for the family. Unused dollars will be rolled over or paid out at the conclusion of the year. Money can be deposited into the bank online.  

Drop-In Care Unscheduled use of the After School Program is billed at the rate of $10/30 minutes. This may be waived and billed at the Daily Pass rate for emergencies with approval of administration. A current credit card must be on file with the office.
