St. Ann School Extended Care Program
Mrs. Trudy Stensaas, Extended Care Director
The mission of the St. Ann School Extended Care Program is to provide a safe and enjoyable experience while promoting the spiritual, academic, and social growth of our students during before school (6:30 – 8:00 a.m.) and after school (3:00 – 5:30 p.m.) hours.
Enrollment in the St. Ann School Extended Care Program is available on a first come, first- served basis. An enrollment packet will be given to parents/guardians prior to the first day of St. Ann School Extended Care. Please read the fee agreement and policies carefully. St. Ann School requires that all St. Ann School Extended Care enrollment forms be returned prior to the first day of attendance.
2016-2017 Fee Schedule
|3:00pm - Beyond 3:45pm
A $10/familiy Registration Fee is required for extended care services.
Emergency closings: $5.00/child/hour
Payments for St. Ann School Extended Care Services may be made in advance, weekly, or on a monthly basis. Please make checks payable to St. Ann School Extended Care Program.
When children arrive at school in the morning, they are to be signed in on their sign-in sheet by a parent/guardian or authorized person. When children arrive after school, children will be asked to check in with Extended Care staff who will sign them in. Please note that children will not be released to anybody not on the authorized pick-up list.
Children are to be picked up from St. Ann School Extended Care no later than 5:30PM. A late pick-up fee of $10 per quarter hour will be assessed after 5:30 PM. If you know that you may run late in picking up your child, please plan accordingly and make other pick-up arrangements.
If St. Ann School is closed due to inclement weather, the St. Ann School Extended Care Program will NOT be offered that day. Please listen to TV/Radio announcements to determine whether school is in session. Please keep in mind that St. Ann School follows the Stoughton Area School District recommendations for closing. In the event of school closing early due to weather conditions, the St. Ann School Extended Care Program WILL BE OPEN UNTIL PARENTS/GUARDIANS CAN SAFELY PICK-UP THEIR CHILDREN.
Since St. Ann School Extended Care either precedes or follows a full day of instruction, the atmosphere is a social, relaxing environment. From 4:00-4:30 there is a designated “quiet time”. During this time children will have the option of working on any homework assigned, reading quietly, playing board games, etc. While no student has to work on homework at this time, it is strongly encouraged that children take advantage of this quiet time. Many children enrolled in St. Ann School Extended Care are also involved in extracurricular activities and could greatly benefit from this time. The St. Ann School Extended Care staff is available and eager to assist with any homework assignments.
The purpose of the discipline policy is to provide guidelines for discipline that will protect the rights of all children, staff, and school property. St. Ann School Extended Care staff will provide a caring and cooperative environment. Children will be expected to (a) treat other children and St. Ann School Extended Care staff with consideration and respect (b) care for all games, materials, equipment, and school property with respect, and (c) participate in large/small group activities in a positive, cooperative manner. A child may be asked to withdraw from an activity if he or she displays aggressive, destructive, or uncooperative behavior.
If any child’s behavior demands greater attention than that which staff can reasonably provide, a conference will be held with the parents/guardians, the principal, and St. Ann School Extended Care staff to explore other resources. No child who continually endangers the safety of others will be allowed to stay in the St. Ann School Extended Care Program.
Accidents/Emergency Medical Treatment
Should an accident or medical emergency occur during the hours of St. Ann School Extended Care, staff will immediately notify the parents/guardians of the child. In the event that the parent/guardians cannot be reached, and medical treatment is required, your signature on the St. Ann’s School emergency card empowers staff members to call the physician indicated on the emergency card. Depending on the severity of the injury/medical emergency, 911 will be called and the child transported to Stoughton Hospital Urgent Care for treatment.
*Please note: It is imperative that your child’s emergency card be thoroughly filled out and include all medical conditions, allergies, and medications. Please be sure that your current work and cell numbers are listed as well.
If a child becomes ill either before or after school, a rest mat and a blanket will be provided for the child’s comfort. Parents/guardians will be notified and will be expected to come for the ill child as soon as possible or have another authorized adult do so.
When your child is absent from school, please ask the school office to notify the St. Ann School Extended Care staff that your child will not be in Extended Care that day. No child that is absent during school hours will be allowed to attend St. Ann School Extended Care.
Medications will be given only after proper forms have been filled out and given to St. Ann School Extended Care staff. The same regulations that apply to medications given during school hours apply to medications given either before or after school hours. Please check the school handbook for instructions on bringing either prescription and over the counter medications to school.
Children may bring their own breakfast if they attend St. Ann School Extended Care before school. Children may also use a kitchen cupboard and/or refrigerator to store breakfast items. Remember to please label these items with your child’s name.
An after school snack will be provided around 3:30PM. Snacks will consist of nutritional foods from one or more of the following food groups: fruits and vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy. Beverages including milk, water, or juice will be provided.
**All snacks served in the St. Ann School Extended Care Program have been carefully purchased with food allergies in mind. If you have any questions or concerns, please see the St. Ann School Extended Care Director.
