The Saint Francis of Assisi School CARES (Children Are Receiving Extra Services) program provides children with a Catholic environment extending the philosophy and values of Saint Francis of Assisi School after school hours.  The program serves the children enrolled in the school whose parent(s)/guardian(s) work outside the home.  Only children enrolled in our school are eligible to be enrolled in a CARES program.

The Saint Francis of Assisi School CARES program is staffed by teachers and other caregivers and is under the administration of the Principal.  The staff members work together to help each child grow in maturity and self-respect, as well as to maintain an atmosphere where respect and understanding of others is encouraged.


We highly recommend that you register your child for your current or future extended care.  A one time $25.00 non-refundable Registration Fee is needed per family. This will also allow you to call in for CARES on an as needed basis if space is available.  The following items are necessary to complete your child’s Registration:

  • CARES SFA Registration Form (1 per family)
  • Department of Human Services (DHS) Form (1 per child)
  • CARES Registration Fee ($25.00 per family)

Children not enrolled in CARES cannot stay in the program after school without the necessary forms on file in the Main Office.


Before School CARES

Before School childcare is available through the Saint Francis Early Learning Center beginning at 6:45 A.M. daily.  Please complete the Registration Form and return to Ms. Courtney Jackson, Director of the ELC.

After School CARES

Our CARES program commences immediately upon school dismissal and pick up time is at 5:30 P.M.  Saint Francis of Assisi School does not offer the CARES program on scheduled early dismissal days, snow days, or early dismissal due to snow.  Please ensure your child/children know where they are to go if this should occur.  An $8.00 late fee will be charged for every fifteen minutes you are late (no exemptions will be made) to cover the staff’s extra working time.
