Riverbend School offers several options for parents who need care for their children outside of normal school hours, or on days when classes are not in session.
Before and After School Care
Before School Care begins at 7:30 a.m. and After School Care is available until 5:45 p.m. for full-day students.
We offer three options for extended day care:
2. Session Contracts (pre-registration for individual sessions: Fall, Winter, Spring)
3. Annual Contract (pre-registration for before and after school care for entire academic year)
2019-20 Session Contract & Drop-in Rates
|Program||Session Rates||Drop-in Rates|
|Primary – 8th grade||$15/hour||$18/hour|
|Primary – 8th grade||$10/day||$12/day|
1. DROP IN (AS NEEDED)
We understand that there may be times when an unexpected appointment comes up, you run into an emergency, or your child likes the idea of joining friends on the playground for After School.
Please call the office at 508-655-7333 or email [email protected] prior to 2:45 p.m. to check if space is available to have your child added. If the office is not notified of your After School needs and your child’s name will not be added to the attendance sheet for the day. Late pick-up fees of $1 per minute for the first 15 minutes, and $5 per minute after the first 15 minutes will apply.
2. SESSION CONTRACTS (PRE- REGISTRATION)
Pre-registration is divided into 3 sessions: Fall, Winter & Spring, so you can change your requirements as you need to throughout the school year while taking advantage of a discounted rate. Within each session, you can choose any day(s) of the week you would like to reserve and select a pick-up time that best suits your needs, i.e. 3:30 p.m., 4 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and so on.
If you cancel your pre-registration prior to the end of a session, any amounts pro-rated for days and times that the After School program was used will be based on the above drop-in rates. To register, visit riverbendschool.org/signups.
