​​​​OUR LADY STAR OF THE SEA SCHOOL

AFTER CARE

The purpose of the OLSS Aftercare Program is to provide quality, affordable childcare after school for OLSS families. The objectives are to provide children with age-appropriate opportunities to meet their social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development needs in a safe, supervised, and caring atmosphere.

​​

Aftercare Days & Hours of Operation:

Aftercare begins at school dismissal time, and operates until 6:00pm. On emergency early dismissal days due to inclement weather, the Program will be closed. Aftercare operates all days that school is in session, with the exception of 12:30pm dismissal days. Due to MSDE regulations, we are not able to have PK students in the Aftercare Program.

 

Aftercare Activities:

Aftercare includes the following activities:

1) Outside play time (weather permitting)

2) Inside playtime with appropriate toys, games, etc.

3) Study time is scheduled to give children the opportunity to complete their homework, and thus have more time for family activities in the evening. Staff are available to assist children during this time. We strongly recommend that parents check their child’s work each evening. If children finish their homework, they may read.


Snacks:

Due to current Maryland State Dept of Education regulations, the Aftercare Program cannot provide snacks for children. Please send a snack for your child.

Payment:

Aftercare charges will be included with tuition payment plans in TADS from the start of the school year, or at the time that a student starts attending.


Late Charges:

The Aftercare Program ends at 6:00pm. A late fee of $10/per child will be assessed for every 15 minutes after 6:00p.m. until the child is picked up.

 

Pick-Up & Departure:

Parents and guardians pick up children and sign them out from PK building. No parents may enter the building, in compliance with CDC regulations.  To ensure the safety of the children, only persons named on the completed “Emergency Form” will be allowed to pick up children. If someone other than parents or people named on the form will be picking up your child, please notify our staff in advance, in writing or by phone call to the School Office.

 

If your child has an extra curricular evening activity that require changing clothes before departure, please notify our staff, so they may allow time for your child to change before pick up.

 

Outdoor Play:

The children have outdoor playtime every day, if weather permits. Please make sure you child has the appropriate attire for the weather, including coat, hat, & gloves in the winter, and sunscreen in the summer.

 

Required Paperwork:

Maryland State regulations require that Aftercare Programs maintain emergency information on each child enrolled. To register your child in the OLSS Aftercare Program, please submit the following completed paperwork :

1) Application Form

2) Maryland State Dept. of Education Emergency form

3) Maryland State Dept. of Education Health Inventory
