Extended Care

BSS Extended Care Program

The Blessed Sacrament School Extended Care program is based on the philosophy and goals of the school. We recognize the need for children to be supervised beyond the regular hours of the school day, especially while parents are working or cannot pick up their children on time, and offer supervision, games and recreation, arts and crafts projects, snack time, the opportunity to complete homework with staff guidance, as well as a variety of other enrichment opportunities in a Catholic environment.

Availability and Hours of Operation

The Extended Care program is available to all students enrolled at Blessed Sacrament School and operates on days when school is in session, even minimum school days. Our normal operating hours are from 6:30-7:30 A.M. and from dismissal time until 6:00 P.M. However, it should be noted that there are five days when Extended Care will be available as usual in the morning, but NOT after school: the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, the Friday before Christmas break, Holy Thursday, the Thursday of the parish festival in May, and the last day of school in June.

Location and Facilities

The Extended Care program is located inside the Preschool/Pre-K building on campus. The children use the school playground for outdoor activities and other classrooms for homework and study time.

Staff and Personnel

The program is supervised by an experienced Director and dedicated staff who strive to give individual attention and a sense of security to all children enrolled in the program. Staff members are encouraged to be fair and consistent when dealing with children while maintaining a respectful and caring atmosphere.
