Latch Key

Students attending St. Mary’s School are eligible to attend this after school care program. Care will be provided from dismissal at 2:15 (dismissal) until 5:00 and meets in the Second Grade room.

The cost for this school year is $5.00 an hour per child, with a cap of $8.00 per family per hour.  A statement will be sent out at the end of the month. Latch Key bills must be paid on a monthly basis, if the service is to be continued.  

Note:  Parents are asked to develop a plan “B” in case of school closing early due to bad weather.  In that case Latch Key will be cancelled for that afternoon.

If you intend on using the Latch Key Program, you will need to fill out the weekly Latch Key Sign Up Form. Simply check the boxes indicating the days your child/ren will be staying after school with us and send it to school at the beginning of each week. This way we will know who to expect.

The Latch Key form will be sent home each week to be filled out for the following week. If for some reason you don’t get a form, you may send a written request to school with your child that states the day(s) you need this service.

If something should arise last minute requiring that your child/ren must stay after school, please call the school office to let us know. DO NOT send an email to your child’s teacher regarding dismissal changes for that day as she may not have the opportunity to open her mail until after school has ended and the children have gone home. Instead, please call the school office.
