BEFORE AND AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM

The Hawaii State Department of Social Services and Housing (DSSH) licenses our Preschool and Day Care staff, program, and facilities.   The DSSH licenses our afternoon K-8 Day Care program.  Our Savior is licensed to provide Day Care before and after school for all of our students through age fifteen.  The After-School program is licensed to serve a maximum of 80 students.

For Day Care, we charge an extra fee.  We budget for our staffing using the whole-year flat-rate discounted fees.  We charge $10.00/day for morning day care and $20/day for afternoon day care “drop-ins”.  On Early Dismissal Days, we charge $40 for afternoon dropin care.  After 6:00 p.m., you’ll pay $10 for each 15-minute increment or part thereof.  We charge fees for day care during breaks or intersessions which enable us to offer this service.

After-School sports participation requires attendance for at least four classes that school day.  Participation in scheduled P.E. classes is necessary in order to participate in After-School practices or games.  Team members’ siblings and ride-sharing students will remain in Day Care.

Admission to the Before- and After-School Program is available to any student enrolled in our regular elementary school program up to age 15.  Acceptance is on a first come, first served basis by application.  Students applying after we have reached the maximum allowed will be placed on a waiting list.

Regular School Day Dismissal times are: Kindergarten..… 2:25.p.m.
Grades 1-2…….. 2:30.p.m.
Grades 3-5…….. 2:40.p.m.
Grades 6-8…….. 2:50.p.m.
Pick up Kindergarten – Grade 2 students by 2:45 p.m., unless waiting for an older sibling or car pool.
Grades 3-8 students will be picked up by 3:00 p.m.

All K-8 students remaining on campus after 3:00 p.m. must enroll in day care.  After 3:00 p.m. students will join our daycare, and we’ll bill the parents $20, which is the afternoon day care drop-in rate.

Early Dismissal (Half-Day) school day dismissal times are: Kindergarten – Grade 2…11:30 a.m. and Grades 3-8…11:45 a.m.  For Early Dismissal days (11:30/11:45 a.m. dismissals), we’ll bill $40 for day care, and we’ll bill $6.00 for on-the-spot lunches.

After 6:00 p.m., we charge $10.00 for each 15-minute interval. Day Care enrollment forms are available in the school office. Before School Care 6:00 – 7:30 a.m.  After-School Care 2:30 – 6:00 p.m.  Included in the program are days that dismiss at 11:30/11:45 a.m.   Students must bring their own lunch on those days.

Activities for the After-School Program include a snack, homework time, outdoor play, games, and arts and crafts.

Special designated places store each child’s personal belongings.

Do not bring gum, toys, electronic devices, cell phones, games, candy, or money to school unless the teacher has initiated prior written arrangements.

For Discipline students hold the same standards that they observe during the school day. They must respect others, obey the supervisors, practice etiquette, and ask permission. If a child cannot achieve these expectations, they cannot continue here and must seek other supervisors.

Regarding Field Trips and Transportation, we do not arrange field trips for the daycare program since children are picked up after-school within a wide range of times.  All students are assigned a classroom area and remain on campus continuously until a designated adult signs them out.  We do not provide transportation to and from school.

Late Departures: Students cannot be on campus unsupervised. Students who are not enrolled in Day Care, but stay on campus after 3:00 p.m. will be charged the $20 per day drop-in rate. Early Dismissal Day late departures after 12:00 noon are charged the $40 per day drop-in rate.

Students who are involved in after-school activities (for example: Sports, A+ Club, Chess Club, Hula Club, Robotics, Art Club, Japanese Club, Piano Lessons, Homework Club, Instrument Lessons, Lifers Club, Student Council, Intramurals, Detention, etc.) will be sent to day care when the activity ends if parents are not present to take over the supervision. In addition, please don’t allow children to wander around campus unsupervised (out of your eye-sight) when you’re on campus. When day care students remain after 6:00 p.m., parents are billed $10.00 per each 15-minute increment.
