Extended Day and Morning Care Programs


The Basilica School of Saint Mary provides an Extended Day Program in a safe and Christian atmosphere after school for children in grades Kindergarten through eight. The Program offers a supervised optional study hall for grades 2-8 as well as supervised activities and play. In this environment, children grow in all aspects and are allowed time for interaction with other students. All school policies as outlined in the Parent-Student Handbook apply to Extended Day.

Extended Day must be contracted regardless of drop-in, part-time or full-time usage. Please note that Extended Day spaces are limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Details on pricing and hours can be found in the extended day contract.

Hours of Operation: After School - 6:00 PM. Exceptions to the Extended Day Calendar are posted on the school-wide calendar.

Extended Day is not in session on the following days:

  • 1st day of school
  • Conference day (November)
  • Day before Thanksgiving break
  • December 20
  • Holy Thursday
  • Last day of school

Morning Care Program

TIME: 7:00 - 7:30 am (Gates Close at 7:20am)  On days when school has a delayed start, Morning Care will operate. One hour delay will operate from 8:00 - 8:25am. Two hour delay will operate from 9:00 - 9:25 am.

COST: $6 per child for any arrival time listed above, plus registration fee of $35, unless previously paid for Extended Day After Care.  Billing will occur through FACTS on the 15th of the next month.


BREAKFAST: Not Available

LOCATION: Cafeteria - Quiet games and activities will be provided. Children will be escorted at 7:30 am to join the rest of the students arriving to school.

HOW DOES THIS WORK? Think of afternoon pick-up in reverse. The gates will open at 6:50 am. You are directed to enter the blacktop in a single file line in front of door #2. Children remain in their vehicles. At 7:00 am, staff will blow their whistle and children will proceed to line up behind the orange barricades. At that time, you will be given the ALL CLEAR sign to leave. Follow one another out of the blacktop on to Royal Street, exiting as you came in. DO NOT make any attempt to exit behind the GYM as it is one way at that time for Faculty and Staff arrival.

HOW DO I REGISTER? You register by completing the online registration form here and agree to the policies and guidelines outlined in the EXTENDED DAY POLICIES AND GUIDELINES above in order to participate in the Morning Care program.
