BEAR CARE 2017-2018
POLICIES AND TUITION INFORMATION

     In anticipation of the upcoming school year, we would like to share with you some important information about Holy Family’s Bear Care Program.  For those families who are new , Bear Care is our after-school care program promoting learning and growth for your child from dismissal at 2:20 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

      Beginning on the first day of school your child can attend Bear Care each afternoon.  Your child’s homeroom teacher will be notified of the children who have registered for Bear Care.   Registration is required for each child and is not part of your normal school registration.  So if you plan for your child to stay after school at Bear Care, you must complete the BEAR CARE REGISTRATION FORM.  

     Homework will be a priority yet there will still be time for programs and activities that will keep your child entertained and educated. The Bear Care room for the Pre-K 4 and Kindergarten students is located across the street from school at the corner of N. Jefferson and Florida Ave.   If your child is in this age group, you will sign your child out ONLY at the Bear Care Room.  The sign-out log will remain in that building. 

If your child is a 1st-8th grader they will assemble after school in the cafeteria for snack and will immediately begin homework.  After all homework is complete and checked, students will be given several opportunities for structured outside play or indoor games and activities.  Your child’s sign out sheet for these age groups will be inside the cafeteria. 

The tuition rates are listed below.  All Bear Care tuition is due THE FIRST DAY OF BEAR CARE.  Tuition is due each month on the 1st of each and every month and there is a $20.00 late fee for any tuition paid after the 5th of each month. 

     BEAR CARE IS FULL TIME OR PART TIME ONLY.  There is NO DAILY RATE FOR BEAR CARE.  Only in the case of emergency or if a student misses the bus or is not picked up at carpool will a child be sent to Bear Care and you will be billed for a daily rate.  We no longer will track how many days your child comes to Bear Care and charge you a daily rate.  Full time is 5 days a week – Part time is less than 3 days a week.   If you pay the Part-time rate for the month and your child attends more than 2 days a week you will be invoiced for the remaining Full-time tuition. 

We look forward to a wonderful year at Bear Care.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.  My email address is pcrocker@hfspa.com.
