However, if this occurs you must contact the school by 11:00 am in order to use our extended care services. A $10 late fee will be charged to your account unless you contact the school office by 11:00 am informing staff you need extended care services.

Pick up from Extended Care is by 5:30 pm. If a parent is late, they will be charged $5 for the first minute and $1 per minute for every minute after that. After 3 times of being late the child will not be permitted to stay in Extended Care.
