Welcome to Holy Family Regional Catholic School's C.A.R.E.S. program (or CARES). CARES programs are available to all students enrolled at Holy Family RCS.

Beginning Monday, September 12th 2016 for all grades, Holy Family Regional Catholic School's BeforeCare services are available for families whose schedules require student drop-off prior to when school doors officially open at 7:25am. This service is fee-based and is separate from your child’s tuition. All car-riding students arriving at Holy Family prior to 7:25am are required to be escorted by a parent/guardian to the CARES entrance and signed in to BeforeCare. This program ensures that any child that needs to be dropped off as early as 7:00am will be in a safe, structured, adult-supervised environment.

BeforeCare will open at 7:00am each school day. Students will be dismissed to their regular classrooms beginning at 7:25 am. Pre-K and Kindergarten students will be escorted to their classrooms upon dismissal. Important Note: There will be no BeforeCare on school days with delayed openings such as inclement weather days. BeforeCare is available to Holy Family students [Pre-K through 8th grade].

2016 - 2017 BeforeCare Rates & Fees

Annual CARES Registration Fee = $15.00 per family*

*1 Registration fee allows use of either CARES program -- Before & AfterCare

1 Child: $3.00 per day              2 or more children (same family) $5.00/day per family
Late Payment Fee: $10.00/month Payments not received within 10 school days from the "date stamp" on the original email sent by CARES will be assessed this charge on the following month's invoice. Failure to maintain a current account balance may jeopardize your family's continued eligibility to use CARES services.  

$25.00 CARES Administrative Late Fee: Applied at the end of the school year to accounts not paid in full (including any prior assessed monthly late charges) by the last date that your child is eligible to attend CARES (See "Dates" tab). Re-enrollment and release of school transcripts may be effected by unpaid balances.

Monthly pre-registration is required. A  2016-2017 CARES Pre-Enrollment Form must be completed.  An invoice/statement will be emailed to a designated parent or guardian shortly after the end of each month. Prompt payment is due upon receipt of your invoice. If desired, pre-payments may be made and your monthly invoice/statement will reflect payments received. Make checks payable to Holy Family Regional Catholic School (HFRCS) and write BeforeCare on the memo line and send it in a sealed envelope clearly marked ATTN: BEFORECARE. Any unused credits remaining on CARES account balance at the end of the school year are non-refundable and do not roll over to the next school year.
Please promptly notify the CARES Administrator and/or the school principal if there are extenuating, personal circumstances regarding a financial or other hardship that will adversely impact your ability to make scheduled payments for CARES services. When adequately informed, we will make every effort to work together with you to offer a manageable resolution in order to continue providing uninterrupted CARES services.
