Extended Care

  • Extended care is offered both before and after school.
     
  • Morning care starts at 7:00 am. 
  • No students may be dropped off before that time.
  • Students will remain in morning care until 7:50 a.m.
  • After school
    • Dismissal time is 2:45 p.m.
    • All middle school students not picked up by 3:15 p.m. will be required to go to a supervised extended care where charges will begin at 3:30 p.m. and are charged in fifteen-minute increments.
    • This will be a time of activities as well as supervised study time.
    • Parents/guardians must sign students out upon pick-up, and there will be a charge for this service.
    • All students must be picked up by 5:30 p.m.
  • Charges will be set by the Board of Directors each year. Please check with the Business Office for details
  • All extended care supervisors are instructed to enforce the program rules.
  • Expectations: The Bible provides sound principles regarding behavior and human relationships. Through the extended care program at RCS, we want to provide an environment that is safe and enjoyable for the participating children. In order for this to take place, expectations have been established to ensure a quality program.
    • Extended care students are expected to be TRUSTWORTHY, HELPFUL, FRIENDLY, KIND, OBEDIENT, CHEERFUL, and COURTEOUS.
    • If a child chooses to disregard or step outside of these expectations, consequences will be assigned.
    • At the supervisor’s discretion, demerits may be issued after verbal warnings.
    • If poor behavior continues, the student may be sent to administration. Parents/guardians will be informed of behavior issues.
  • Any student wanting to watch a home game must report to extended care until the game starts. He/she must have written permission to leave extended care at that time.
  • The program concludes at 5:30 p.m. sharp. Pick-ups after this time will be surcharged at a rate of double the increment fees.
  • Parents/guardians need to sign out their students every day. A full-day rate will be charged should this not occur.
  • In the event of an emergency, program supervisors are authorized to act on your behalf should you be unavailable and/or cannot be located.
  • Student Athletes
    • If a student is an athlete waiting for the start of a home sporting event, he/she is to report to extended care until the coach arrives on campus. Typically this is ½ hour before the start of the game.
    • Athletes who finish practice and are still on campus after 15 minutes will be sent to extended care.
