Extended Day Program
The St. Mary’s Catholic School Extended Day Pre-K 3 & 4 Program provides supervised after-school activities until 6:00 p.m. The Program is open each school day, with the exception of: the last day before the Christmas Holiday break, and the last day of school.
Students may enroll at any time during the year, but we ask for a week’s notice. The Extended Day Program
cannot accept children on a “drop-in” basis. Children not enrolled in the program will be brought to the school office if they are not picked up by 3:45 p.m. Parents will be called and expected to pick up their child immediately. Discontinuing enrollment requires one week’s written notice provided to the school office.
The fee is $40 per week for each child. The fee will be charged to your FACTS account.
Students must be retrieved no later than 6:00 p.m.
(After 6:00 p.m., a $1.00 per minute, per child Late Pick-Up Charge is due to the Program Supervisor upon retrieval of the students.)
The Extended Day Enrollment Agreement allows parents and guardian to designate other adults who may retrieve their child(ren); the designated person(s) must provide a specified form of identification. In special circumstances, a parent or guardian may provide a signed note (or,
in an emergency only, a telephone call) to the school office authorizing another adult to retrieve the child(ren). To protect the safety of its students,
St. Mary’s Catholic School will not release any child to a person without proper authority or identification.
Program Policies and Procedures
The base of operations for the Pre-K 3 & 4 Extended Day Program is the St. Mary’s Catholic School Pre – K building; all scheduled activities begin there.
Students report to Extended Day immediately following the end of the school day. After 4:00 p.m., students enjoy a snack break and have outdoor directed recreation and educational activities.
The Program Supervisor assumes the same authority and responsibility in the Program that teachers have in the classroom. All St. Mary’s Catholic School policies and procedures – including the rules of discipline – apply to the Extended Day Program.
Volunteering & Donating
To help with the Extended Day Program, either by monitoring children as a Program Assistant or by donating materials, please contact the school office. Note that anyone who works with St. Mary’s Catholic School children have to meet requirements established by the Diocese of Austin.
The Zone is an after school program offered by the City of Temple Parks and Leisure Services Department.
