Extended Care Policy – Beginning School Year 2019-2020
Extended Care is a program designed to aid working parents. PK – 6th Grade families may sign up to have their child(ren) attend extended care by completing the Extended Care Request Form below. All students must be enrolled in one of the available extended care options in order to attend extended care. Students in 5th and 6th grade who are remaining on campus after school must report to extended care. 5th and 6th graders are not permitted to go to the library after school.
Daily drop-ins are not permitted. DC will offer 2 emergency days per semester to families for extended care at no charge. Beyond this, the family must enroll their child(ren) in an extended care program. Extended care will not be available when Dayton Christian is operating on a 2 Hour Early Dismissal.
Please be aware that extended care closes promptly at 6:00pm. The clocks located in the extended care rooms will be considered the official time. Parents may choose to enroll their child in early pick-up (4:45pm) or late pick-up (6:00pm).
Anyone arriving after their registered pick-up time (4:45pm or 6:00pm) will be charged $2.00 per minute. This late fee will be applied monthly through the DC Finance Office. (This is a common practice among other day cares and schools that offer extended care options.)
Families that are late two times in a semester will have their extended care privileges removed for three days. After the three days, they may rejoin extended care. If late pick-up continues, the use of extended care services will be discontinued for the remainder of the school year, and the family will need to secure another after school option for their child(ren).
Please note that Carpool 2 is available at no cost for students being picked up by 3:10pm. Students remaining after 3:10pm will be taken to extended care, where the late fee of $2 per minute will be applied.
