The Extended Day Program (EDP) was established to meet the needs of the busy families of Saint James School who desire both Catholic education and supplementary after-school care in a safe, structured environment. The EDP program is available to all registered families of Saint James and operates from 2:15 pm to 5:30 pm each full school day and from 12:00 noon to 5:30 pm each scheduled early dismissal day. When school is not in session, EDP is not in session, In addition, EDP is not in session on the final school day prior to the vacations for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter or on the last day of school. In the event of an emergency closing, families will not receive credit for the day.
The EDP program is available to children in Kindergarten through 5th grades. Planned activities, including arts and crafts, games, recreation and snack time are coordinated on a daily basis. In addition, time is available for homework assignments and additional resource materials are available.
The EDP program is fully staffed by employees of Saint James school. An annual registration form, available in the Business Office, must be completed preferably at the time of registration for the upcoming school year. Registration includes a non-refundable family registration fee or $30.00 and a notarized medical form for each student. Space is limited and mid-year registrations may not be available. EDP is offered on a full or part-time basis.
