Extended Care

Extended Care is an after-school program that provides playrooms, enrichment activities, sports clinics and study halls until 5:30 p.m.  Extended Care is designed to be a monthly service, but daily use is now permitted.


A Monthly Extended Care rate is based on a discounted rate of $17.50 per day times the number of days in that month (Please see the attached Monthly Extended Care Rates for monthly fees).  To take advantage of the monthly Extended Care rate, families must have a FACTS Incidental Billing account. The order form is due by the last day of the preceding month.  (Monthly Extended Care Order Forms are available from either office.) Order forms received on or after the first of the month and before the eighth of the month will incur a $10.00 late charge.  After the eighth of the month, only the Daily Rate will be available at $25.00 per use and will be billed through FACTS.

Sports Rate: For students actively participating in LCP after-school athletics, a special monthly rate of $10.00 per day is available.

Grace Period

When school ends, there is a grace period until 3:15 p.m. during which authorized persons may pick up students at no additional charge.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences, whether scheduled or impromptu, do not excuse your child from Extended Care.  If you do not wish to utilize Extended Care during a scheduled conference, please arrange for the pickup and after-school care of your child.  If you are having a conversation with your child’s teacher after school, it is your responsibility to keep your child with you for the duration, or your child will be checked into Extended Care incurring the single-use rate of $25.00.

Late Bird Charge

The school officially closes at 5:30 p.m.  A child picked up after 5:30 p.m. will incur a punitive charge of $10.00 for any part of the first ten minutes and $1.00 for each additional minute thereafter.
