After School Care Program
Program Overview

All St. Francis students in grades Preschool-8th grade can participate in our daily after school care program. The program will have use of all the school facilities including the gym, playground, library, classrooms, and technology (lab and Chromebooks as needed). St. Francis aftercare program staff will include our teachers as well as dedicated program staff. All staff meet Archdiocesan safe environment requirements. 


Students will be divided into three rooms based on age. Students in all rooms will be offered a snack. In the early childhood room there will be play-based activities. The elementary school room and middle school room both include time for students to complete homework. Students in the rooms may be combined when the majority of students have been picked up. 

 

Aftercare begins at dismissal and ends at 6pm on every school day (including early dismissals). 

 

Fees and Billing Information

Families may choose either the flat fee payment for the entire year (encouraged and eligible for the payment plan) or the pay-per-use rates (hourly/daily/monthly). Families that do not make a selection will automatically be enrolled in pay-per-use rates and charges will be added to the FACTS account monthly.


Families that have applied for and received financial aid may also qualify for financial aid for use of the before and after care programs. Please direct questions about financial aid for the program to Principal Schmitt.

Getting Involved

At St. Francis de Sales, we offer a rich and rewarding school life that benefits the students, parents and faculty. We have many special programs and clubs for the students as well as ways for our school parents to get involved. We are blessed with a high level of involvement from our parents which offers the students and our school families a strong sense of community. This is evident from the first time a family joins us by being paired with a new family in our New Family program.

 

There are numerous opportunities for parents to get involved through our three school boards, special programs, fundraising, clubs, volunteering in the classroom, and various extracurricular activities. Please visit our Student Life section for more information.
