Before & After Care

Times
Our morning program runs from 7:00am until 8:30am, at which time students will go outside to the playground to join other SCB students. The after school program will begin at 3:00pm and end at 5:30 pm.

Fees
The fee is $3.50 per hour, per student. There will be a $5.00 per 15-minute late fee charged for any children not picked up by 5:30 p.m.

All families using the program (whether on a regular basis or as-needed basis) will receive an end-of the-month statement each month. It will show the hours used, any amounts paid and any balance due. The balance is due upon receipt. Checks may be made out to SCB School.

The Before and After School Care program will follow the school calendar. There will be no sessions held on school holidays. In the event of an early release day, no after school session will be held. Should school be cancelled due to weather or another emergency, the program is also cancelled. Other "No Care" days will be published on the monthly calendar.

Sign In and Out
For the safety of your child(ren), you will be required to sign them in and/or out each day. For the comfort and safety of your child(ren), please make any comments or notes on the sign in sheet.

Authorization for Pick-Up
Your child(ren) may be picked up only by the person(s) designated in writing by the parent/guardian. Should someone else need to pick your child up, the school must be notified in writing. Phone call changes will only be accepted in an emergency. The designated person must show a valid photo I.D. and provide a written signature prior to the release of your child(ren).

After Care Dedicated Phone
We have a dedicated phone to our ASC Supervisors, which should be used for emergency purposes only during hours that you may find our main office closed. It is ONLY to be used to reach our AfterCare Supervisors regarding vital information regarding pick-up of your child, health issues relating to a child in AfterCare, or other related urgent matters. The AfterCare emergency number is 224-325-9839. You should continue to use our main office number or voice mail for all other matters.

Activities
Your child(ren) will be provided the opportunity to do homework, participate in small and large muscle activities, eat a snack, do art activities and other child-centered activities provided by our staff.

Please do not send toys from home. Special arrangements may be proposed to the program director.

Snacks
A snack and drink will be provided for your child(ren) after school. We will accommodate your child for any food allergies he/she may have. However, it is difficult to accommodate all the likes and dislikes of each particular child. If your child is particular about drinks and snacks, please send one from home.

Behavior and Discipline
Every child is expected to use appropriate school behavior at all times. We will not tolerate inappropriate language or actions. The staff will be treated with the same respect shown during the school day. All school rules apply during the program.

If a child is misbehaving, the child will be removed from the situation and the parent will be notified. Should the behavior of the child not improve, the family will meet with the program director and the school principal. Should there be continued problems, the family will be dropped from the program.

Illness or Injury
Should your child become ill at anytime during the Before and After School Care program, you will be immediately notified and asked to pick your child up from school.

If your child is injured and requires more than basic first-aid, we will notify you. Should your child require more immediate care, the Hampshire Rescue squad will be called for assistance. If we are unable to reach you, we will contact the person(s) designated on your release form.
