Extended Care Program

Calvary Lutheran School accommodates busy working parents through our Extended Care program, open 7-8am before school and 3:30-6pm after school. Care is $5/hour, billed in 15-minute increments. Parents may also select the Money Savings Plan of $55/week per child if their child attends Extended Care every day. (This is often a more economical option.) There is a $25 registration fee per family each school year.

While in Extended Care, students play games, read, get started on homework, play outside, and enjoy quality time with friends. Children are supervised at all times to ensure a positive, safe environment.

Family Money Saving Plans (MSPs) explained

MSPs are designed specifically for families who know their children will use Calvary’s Extended Care on a very regular basis, or have multiple children at Calvary needing before and/or after-school care. It is also designed to help families budget their expenses because the fee is the same flat rate for each billing cycle. This is a family plan, so each student in a family is to be enrolled if the family elects to participate.

Weekly fee charged pays for time used in:

  • Morning care
  • After-school care
  • Snow days
  • Early dismissal days
  • Most holidays (please see school calendar). Other days as listed on the accompanying calendar (Note: Extended holiday sessions — Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Spring Breaks — are NOT part of the MSP as these times offer special programs and opportunities)

Parents register for care to be part of Money Saving Plans (MSPs). Parents wishing to register for a MSP may do so only two times per year — prior to the school year start date for the 1st semester, and prior to January 1 for the 2nd semester. We are changing to an hourly drop-in rate available to be done at the end of any billing cycle. Families are billed semi-monthly.
