Emergency Care UpdateSeptember 30, 2014
Due to the increase in Emergency Care requests, we can no longer bill families for Emergency Care charges. As of today, payment for all Emergency Care charges must be submitted upon pick-up that same day. Currently we can accept cash (exact change) or checks made out to the school. Soon we hope to accept credit card payments as well.
The fees are as follows:
- Emergency Before Care – 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM – $10.00
- Emergency Full Day Care or After Care – 12:30 PM to 6:00 PM – $10.00 per hour
- Unauthorized Late Pick Up (If you do not give advance notice that you need emergency care) – $10.00 per 15 minute increment
- Unauthorized Late Pick Up (if you arrive after 6:00 PM): $10.00 per 5 minute increment
We are nearing our maximum capacity for Emergency Care requests. Because of this, we ask that you think of Emergency Care as a last resort for emergencies, rather than a regular child care option. We encourage developing an informal arrangement with other parents who may be able to pick up your child when you can’t, or authorizing additional friends or relatives to pick up your child when you are not able to.
It is our goal to be here for you when you need us in an emergency. We ask your help so that the option will be available for those who need it when an emergency arises.
Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
