Fundraising Information

Our Extended Care program is available for Our Lady of Fatima Parish School students, Preschool-3rd Grade, space permitting and for an additional fee. Extended Care is only available when school is in session for the full day. Extended Care is not offered on teacher in-service days, holiday breaks, or on early release days (noon dismissal).

The primary focus of Extended Care is to provide onsite quality supervised care for Our Lady of Fatima Parish School students. This is not a program intended for enrichment or extensive activities, but a place where students can be safely supervised. The program is held in the school library.

Students are supervised by the Extended Care teachers and assistants who are all employees of Our Lady of Fatima Parish School. Extended Care employees have CPR and first aid training, Safe Environment training, adhere to required updates, and have passed background checks.

There is an additional fee for students attending the Extended Care program. Application forms are provided in the spring following re-registration. Extended Care enrollment is taken in the following order of priority:

  1. Students currently enrolled in Extended Care and their newly admitted siblings
  2. Students currently waitlisted for Extended Care
  3. New applicants to Extended Care

We ask that parents please indicate their desire to enroll their child(ren) in Extended Care as early as possible, up to a year in advance, so students may be added to the waitlist by date of inquiry. Inquiries should be directed to Betsy McCormick, Vice Principal, Student Support & Early Learning.



Except for Preschool and Pre-K, all students who are enrolled in the Extended Care program must report to the lunchroom for snack and recreational time immediately after the end of the school day, where they will be signed in by a staff member. Preschool and Pre-K students will be escorted to the lunchroom by staff.

Pick Up and Sign Out

A designated parent/legal guardian on file with Our Lady of Fatima Parish School must sign out all students via the Brightwheel app. Children may only leave the school premises with the people listed on the Extended Care Registration & Enrollment Agreement. If it happens that another person will pick up your child, parents/guardians must email the Extended Care Team (Kate Youngblood, Mary Ann Van Tassell, and Betsy McCormick) before 12:00pm and/or email/call the school office before the end of the regular school day to let us know who will be taking your child from the school. Please also be sure to add all authorized adults to your child’s emergency contacts in their Alma account indicating they are allowed to pick up your child.

All doors to the building are locked to ensure the safety and security of the children in our care. If you arrive to pick up your child from Extended Care after 3:55pm, please park in the back parking lot and ring the doorbell at the southwest door. Prior to 3:55pm, come to the front door and proceed to the lunchroom.

Late Fees

Students must be picked up by no later than 6:00pm. In the event that your child is not picked up by that time, you will be charged $50.00. After 6:05pm, there will be an additional $10.00 per minute late fee charged. Late fees will be billed monthly via incidental billing through your Finaliste account.

Daily Schedule

Extended Care staff will take students outside (weather permitting) or to the gym for recreational time followed by homework/quiet reading time/indoor activities. It is not our expectation that Extended Care personnel supervise or require the students to do homework.

Wednesday Schedule

On Wednesdays, Extended Care begins at 2:15pm and ends at 6:00pm.


Extended Care staff will provide a light snack at 3:15pm. If a child desires more, it will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian to pack an extra snack in the child’s lunch.

Daily Rules

In keeping with the Catholic nature of our school, the very highest standards of conduct are expected at all times. Students are expected to treat each other and all Extended Care staff with respect. This program is an extension of the school day and all expectations of behavior reflect school policies. If students do not exhibit respectful behavior, they may be removed from the program after a parent/guardian conference with the principal.

Extended Care students are responsible for their actions and behaviors and should act in an appropriate manner:

  • Share with others and behave courteously at all times.
  • Take proper care in use of materials and school equipment.
  • Walk in hallways, classrooms, and cafeteria.
  • Keep all areas clean.
  • Never leave an area without permission.
  • Be respectful to those persons in authority.


Extended Care will follow the same schedule as the school calendar. When there is no school or on days with early dismissal, Extended Care will be closed. These additional hours will not count against a family’s weekly hours.

Attendance Reporting

If your child will not be attending on a particular day, please let us know that morning by sending an email to Kate Youngblood, copying your child’s teacher and the school secretary.

Extended Care is open for registered students in the afternoon 3:15 PM – 6:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and 2:15 PM – 6:00 PM on Wednesday. The program does not operate during school breaks, in-services, holidays, conferences, or on early dismissal (noon dismissal
