The Before & After School Care Program (BASC) provides a safe and caring

environment for students of Holy Cross School. It provides a safe, fun and 

affordable alternative to students going home to an empty house or

needing transportation to other child care programs. All students in grades PK4

through 8 are eligible for attendance in this extended care program.

Schedule

Before & After School Care:

     Before School: 6:30-7:30 AM

     After School: Pick-up between 2:45 – 6 PM  

Charges

 There is a yearly registration fee of $25.00 per student or $35.00 per family.

Fees are $5.00 per hour per child. For those who need to drop their child off anytime prior to the first bell at 7:30 AM, fees will be prorated at 15 minute intervals at $1.25/min.

Payments and Accounts

Payment is due Monday each week care is needed. All families are asked to keep a positive or zero balance in their account. Prompt payment on all negative balance accounts is expected. We reserve the right to deny program attendance for families with excessively negative accounts. Please make checks payable to Holy Cross Parish. 

Late Pick Up Fee

BASC closes promptly at 6:00pm.  In the event a child is picked up after closing time, you will be assessed a Late Pick-up fee of $1 per minute per child.  We reserve the right to deny program attendance for families with habitually late pickups.

Policy for Unregistered Students

Students who are not registered for BASC, but are not picked up from school by

2:50 PM will be sent to BASC. You will still be charged the regular hourly rate per child.  After the third instance of late pick up/BASC attendance, you will also be charged  the $25.00/child registration fee.

Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures

Students attending BASC will be dropped off and picked up at door #3.  You will need to ring the doorbell to gain access to the school building.  Students will have all of their belongings with them so no parents will need to enter the building.

Check In/Check Out Procedures

Safety is of the utmost importance in BASC. To ensure the safety of all our

students, a program coordinator will sign the child into the program before school or out of the program after school. This signed log will be kept for proper record keeping and tracking purposes.

Communication and Schedules

It is very important that you communicate to BASC staff any changes to your

child’s attendance in the program. The easiest way to communicate with us it to 

contact Beth through text (920-655-1882) or email (kruczek112513@gmail.com) to alert her of a change in pick-up or schedule change.  A monthly calendar will be sent at the end of every month to be filled out by a parent letting us know what days care is needed along with an expected pick-up time.  These can be turned in to the school office.

Extracurricular Activities

Students who participate in after school extracurricular activities may attend BASC prior to or upon the conclusion of their activity, however parents must report to BASC to inform one of the program providers of the approximate time the child(ren) will be attending BASC. Students will be released to their activity, and should return promptly to BASC following their activity as indicated by the times given to staff by parents. It is important we know where each student is and when to expect his/her return.

Weather-Related School Closings

In the case of weather-related school closings, the program will follow these

guidelines:

School Cancellations: BASC cancelled

 2 – hour delay: Morning BASC cancelled,  Afternoon BASC operates as usual

Early Release for Bad Weather: Afternoon BASC cancelled

 In the event that after school events are cancelled due to bad weather, the

BASC program will close at 4:00 pm. An email will be sent out to parents to

alert you of this early closing.

Early Release Days

BASC will be offered on early release days.  School dismisses at 11:30 on these days. 

Children are asked to bring a cold lunch on these days.

Snacks

Students attending BASC should bring their own snacks from home.  Snack time will be provided for each child who wishes to participate.  Each child will need to have his/her own water bottle and snack as no snacks, juices or other refreshments will be provided.  *** If your child has any food allergies, please be sure to discuss their needs with us.*** 

Illness, Allergies & Medications

Our program is not equipped to care for sick children.  Should your child become ill while at the program, you or the person you listed as an emergency contact will be called immediately and will need to report to school to promptly retrieve your child. 

We will not have access to any medications stored in the office during BASC. If

your child would need medication during their time in BASC, please make sure to

drop it off with a member of the staff prior to your child’s attendance in the

program (including Epi-Pens).  We will also need to have a Medication Authorization Form

on file to administer any medication to your child.

We reserve the right to make any necessary changes.
