The Extended Day (E.D.) program is offered to St. Martin’s students enrolled in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade to provide quality care that is both convenient and affordable. The program begins the first day of school and ends on the last full day of school. If school is closed, noon dismissal, or closes early for any reason, there are no after-school activities, and that includes E.D.
If you are planning to register your child(ren) for the before and/or after school care session, please adhere to the following requests at your earliest convenience.
Re-enrolled users, first time users, and new students will complete and return the following items:
2. Registration Fee ($30 per family)
3. 1st months payment for each student
4. Health Inventory – First time and new students ONLY
Health Inventory (H.I.), completed by the child’s physician along with the Immunization Certificate prior to the effective date of services. (The Health Inventory is a legal document, issued by the Maryland State Department of Education, Office of Child Care, and is required for all students, whether or not the students are enrolled in the E. D. program.)
Payments are made one month in advance and due the 1st of each month. This program is calculated based on an annual fee divided by 9 months. There is no charge for June! Should you anticipate a permanent change in your contract, a minimum 72-hour notice is required to process and implement the new contract. PLEASE PUT ALL REQUESTS IN WRITING!
A drop-in program is available for emergencies and the attached application must be completed and one should state at the top of the form (DROP-IN ONLY). These students will also be required to have proper childcare forms on file in the office before attending the program. Please send in a hand-written note or email to let the homeroom teacher and school office know that your child will need to attend E.D. for that day. NO PHONE CALLS, PLEASE. There will be a $10.00 charge per hour or any part of the hour that your child will be in the program. The charge will be added to your monthly statement.

I have read and understand the enclosed information regarding the E.D. program. I understand that payment is due monthly, in advance. The charge will be listed on my monthly statement, with the first payment due with this registration. I understand that one month’s written notice to the school office and the E.D. staff in charge of my child’s session is required for any changes in my child’s regular attendance. I understand that the E.D. program is open only on days when school is open to students. I have read and understand closings due to inclement weather or other emergencies where I may need to have a backup plan for picking up my child(ren). I understand the importance of picking my child(ren) up promptly by 6:00 p.m. If I am up to 15 minutes late, I will be charged an additional $15.00. I will be charged $5.00 more for every additional 15 minutes I am late.
This program is calculated based on an annual fee divided by 9 months.
I agree to the terms of this extended day contract. I have checked the schedule of days my child will attend E.D. on the back of this form and have enclosed the $30.00 per family, non-refundable registration fee and 1st month’s payment.
