Welcome to Extended Day 2022/2023
I would like to take this time to introduce myself and explain to you about our Extended Day Program. My name is Mrs. Kaminski and I am the Extended Day
Director. St. Damian’s Extended Day Program is before and after school care for regularly enrolled students.
Our program provides professional care, supervision, recreation and enrichment activities. We offer indoor and outdoor activities, play and homework time and snack
time. Our program fosters the physical, mental, emotional, social and religious development of our students within a Catholic environment.
For the Morning Session – Doors open at 6:30 a.m. You may send in a nutritious breakfast if your child/children did not eat at home. We will be glad to warm up any
breakfast in the toaster or microwave. We are a peanut/nut free environment. Please do NOT send in any food items that contain any type of nut or made in a factory
where nuts are processed, your child/children will not be allowed to eat them and it will be sent back home. Please read your food labels.
For the Afternoon Session – Students are checked in at 3:15 p.m. Pre-K and Kindergarten are picked up directly from the classroom and brought directly into the
Extended Day classroom. Extended Day will provide a snack and water.
PM Pick Up - Extended Day is open until 6:00 p.m. If a student is not picked up by 6:00 p.m., you will receive a phone call from one of our staff members. If we
cannot reach you, we will be contacting someone on your emergency list. Cost for the service fee after 6:00 p.m. is $1.00 per minute. Please read the Handbook
regarding late pick up.
Pre-K 3- & 4-year-old half-day students - The program is offered BEFORE SCHOOL ONLY.
Toilet Trained – All Pre-K/Kindergarten students must be completely toilet trained and be able to use the restroom without assistance. If your child is not completely
trained or starts to have consistent toilet issues, they will be asked to leave the program until they are completely trained. If there is an accident you will be called and
will have to pick up your child immediately. Please make sure you have someone listed on your emergency card that can pick up if you are unable to. Please refer to
Handbook regarding this issue.
