Extended Care Program

Liberty Christian Academy offers Extended Care services before and after school for our students.  Students are cared for by responsible adults who provide games, activities, and videos to make this time safe and enjoyable.

Extended Care consists of a morning session and an afternoon session.  The morning session is from 6:00-8:05 A.M.   Any students who arrive at school (excluding bus riders)  before 8:05 A.M. will be charged for the morning session.  The afternoon session is from 3:30 P.M. to 6:00 P.M.  All students who remain at school after 3:30 P.M. will be placed in Extended Care and charged accordingly.  The cost is $8.00 per session per family.  In other words, if you use both the morning and afternoon sessions, your cost will be $16.00/day.

Students should enter with their parent(s), to be signed in each morning. It is very important to us that we give constant care and attention to your child(ren), so please do not drop off your child without escorting him/her to an Extended Care adult caretaker.

Please listen to the radio &/or television stations for school closing information. LCA’s information will be listed with the other schools. (You may also take advantage of our “Phonevite” service which automatically sends you a voice mail message, should there be a school cancellation or delay.) If your local school district is closed (and LCA is open) bussing will not be provided. If your student will be using our Extended Care services, for that reason, you will be charged the regular $8.00 fee.

During the afternoon session students will have a scheduled snack time.  Please send a nutritious snack for your student to enjoy, if you want them to take advantage of this daily opportunity.

On the 10th of each month (beginning in October) Extended Care charges for the previous month will be billed to you. We suggest you keep track of how many Extended Care sessions that you use and multiply that by $8.00 to figure each month what your Extended Care charges will be. The Extended Care billing month is from the first of the month to the end of the month. The final Extended Care billing of the school year will be billed by June 10th.

Our Extended Care workers are only scheduled to work until 6:00 PM. Please see to it that all students are picked up by 6:00 PM, to allow our workers to go home to their families.  A fee of $20.00 for each half hour (beginning after 6:00 PM) will be charged to your Extended Care account in case of late pick-up.

 Discipline procedures in our Extended Care Program will follow the same standards stated in the handbook. It is the intent of Liberty Christian Academy to make Extended Care an enjoyable experience for your student.  We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to a great year!
