Before School Care (BSC)
Our Lady of Grace Catholic School will offer Before School Care daily from 7:00 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. at a cost of $40/month per child or $5/day per child for the occasional drop-in.
BSC is located in Our Lady's Cottage. This building is located in the Tremont parking lot. Please knock on the door when you arrive and our before school care teacher, Mrs. Meza, will sign your child in.
Students will remain in the cottage until 7:30. At 7:30 all students will go to the gym. At 7:40, all K-8 students will be dismissed to their classrooms. Panther Cubs arriving after 7:40 must be escorted to their classroom by a parent.
After School Care (ASC)
The annual fee for daily use of the service will be $2,250.00 (one child), payable over a nine-month period beginning in September, at a rate of $250.00 per month for one child. Each additional child is $180 per month. The cost for using the After School Care service on an occasional drop-in basis will be $8.25 per hour PER CHILD for the 2020-2021 school year.
The After School program provides a safe, happy environment with high quality service, which parents can rely upon throughout the school year. The After School Care program allows students to do their homework, socialize, play, or arrive after their club activity is over. After School Care is available Monday - Friday from 2:45 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Pre-K after school care starts at 2:30 pm. After School Care also offers the convenience on select half day dismissals until 6:00 p.m. Emails will be sent out with registration links when Mini Camps are posted.
During After School Care, employees can be reached regarding students in 1st-8th grade at 336-938-0432. If your child is in Preschool or Kindergarten and you need to get in touch with someone during ASC, you can call the ASC phone and have the 1st-8th grade employee deliver the message to the Pre-K/K group. If you reach the voicemail, that means the first through eighth grade has already left or is in another area. In that case, I check the ASC voicemail between 5:45 pm and 6:00 pm every weekday.
