Delinquent accounts may result in the child(ren)’s dismissal from the program.

Groups: Student to Caregiver ratio: age 5 and younger is 15/1; age 6 to12 is 25/1. Children will be grouped by grade and/or age. Each student will remain at his/her campus site. There will not be a transfer bus available to transport Extended School Day students. Staying at their academic site will enable the children to take part in extra-curricular and enrichment programs which are age appropriate. These programs could be provided by the school administration and not by the Extended School Day Program due to cost and would be made available to the entire student population at each campus.

Snacks: A snack will be provided by the program at no additional cost to the students immediately after roll call.

Homework: Homework sessions will be available for 2nd through 6th grades. There will be extended homework time until 4:15 pm, if needed. The Directors will discuss with OCHS the utilization of National Honor Society students for tutoring as the need presents itself.

Pick-up: Parents are asked to come into the school and “check out” students each afternoon. A late pick-up fee of $5.00 will be assessed for the initial five (5) minutes after the ending time and $1.00 for each additional minute. These fees cover the cost of the caregivers who stay with the late pick-up.

Activities: Besides homework the children will be given the opportunity to play organized and unorganized games both indoors and outdoors. They may also have interaction with the other students with board games, video games, etc. Occasionally a movie may be shown. The activities may vary due to weather and available space, and as well as the Director’s discretion.

Sign-ups: Parents will sign-up their child(ren) during Pre-Registration in March.
