Extended Care and Summer Camp

Guidelines

St. Mary School Preschool Day Care, Extended Care and Summer Camp will provide quality supervised care for students enrolled at St. Mary School. The Day Care programs are not an extension of the school day and formal classes will not be held. However, homework help is given Monday through Thursday between 3:30 – 5:00 pm in the library during the school year. We will provide a caring atmosphere and activities to make your child feel safe and secure while in our care. All activities will take place at the St. Mary School facility only. However, Summer Camp students will experience several field trips for which parents receive detailed itineraries and permission slips.
