Saint George School offers the extended care program as an extension of the school day to accommodate the needs of our working parents. Parents are welcome to come and visit our program anytime. Extended Care is before school from 7-11am and after school from 3-5:30pm. If school is cancelled, the Extended Care Program will be cancelled. Although if an early dismissal is called due to inclement weather, the Extended Care Program will still remain open until 5:30pm and in case of a 2 hour delay, the Extended Care will still open at 7am. Extended Care is not available on vacation or teacher in-service days.
When registered in the Extended Care program at Saint George School, a parent or authorized person should sign your child/children in and out each day. We will only release your child to the persons designated on your registration form. Please notify staff in writing of a necessary change. Staff will ask for ID, (photo driver’s license) if needed. If your child has practice and will need to leave Extended Care, he or she cannot be released without written permission from the parent. Please advise us if your child has allergies, especially if they have food allergies. In case of food allergies, we will monitor what your child eats. You are encouraged to send alternate snacks if your child’s allergy is serious. The teacher will administer medication but only if parents fill out a medication form and the medication is in the original container.
