Extended Care

A. Philosophy
     Recognizing the role of the parent as the primary educator and caretaker of the child, Saint Peter Martyr School Extended Care assists our parents in accomplishing this duty. The program serves working families who desire parochial school education and supplementary day care in a Christian environment for their children enrolled at Saint Peter Martyr School. Our goal is to provide a safe and happy environment which addresses a child’s physical, emotional, spiritual, academic, and social needs.

B. Organizational Structure
     The Extended Care Program is part of the total school program of Saint Peter Martyr School and is under the supervision of the school principal. The Extended Care Program Director is responsible for the operation of the program. The director keeps the records for the program but all finances are cleared through the school books.
     Care is provided for students in kindergarten through eighth grade before and/or after school. Hours for both regular and minimum school days are from 6:30 A.M. until 8:00 A.M. and from 11:30 A.M. until 5:30 P.M.
     The Extended Care Program operates in the San Juan Diego Center located on the school grounds. Students will be signed in and signed out at the extended care office. At 8:00 A.M. students will be dismissed to the playground where they will be supervised by staff until school begins. After school, kindergarten students will be picked up from their classroom and students in grades one through eight are directed to extended care.
