PROCEDURES

Sign-in:

  • Morning – Children must be signed into EDM upon entering the building. Parents may walk children in to help get them settled.

 

  • Afternoon – Students not picked up in carpool will be signed into EDM, as all students must be supervised. Charges are incurred beginning at 3:30pm.  ANY enrolled child under the supervision of EDM Staff will be signed in to EDM.
    • Students not picked up following an after-school club, tutoring, or event will be signed into EDM unless supervised by a staff member. Charges begin immediately.
    • Children sent to EDM because a parent is attending a meeting or volunteering in a classroom must be signed into EDM. Charges begin immediately.

 

Sign-out:

  • Please be sure to maintain a current school Emergency Contact Sheet and correct contact information, as EDM utilizes this information if we need to contact you while your child is in our care.

 

  • Parent or designated adult must sign child out prior to child being released from EDM. This ensures child safety and accurate billing. Failure to sign child out may result in being charged for entire After School session.  Please do not pick up child from playground without signing out in office first.

 

  • Parents will be called to verify release of child to someone who is not on official pick-up list. Such individuals may be asked to show ID before child is released.

 

  • If a parent is NOT allowed to pick up a child from EDM, that information must be specifically noted on Emergency Contact Sheet and legal documentation on file at the school. Without such documentation, we may release child to either parent.

 

  • Please do not attempt to leave through the back gate when children in EDM are on the playground. This creates a safety hazard for our children.

3:30 — 4:00  Physical Activity, Centers, or Homework–student choice

4:00 – 4:15  Snack (there is an additional charge for snack).  Each child is responsible for cleaning up.

SNACKS

Breakfast is offered before school and snacks are offered after school.  The cost for breakfast is $.70 and consists of cereal or a breakfast item.  The cost for snack is also $.70 and includes one food item, ex:  pretzels, pudding, granola bars or applesauce. Double snack servings may be purchased for $1.40.  Milk or Juice may be purchased individually for $.50.  Parents are welcome to send breakfast or snack with their child to eat at the designated time in the designated space.

 

PAYMENT

A $15.00 registration fee per family will be assessed to your account on the first day your child attends EDM each school year.

Daily fees are assessed on an hourly basis at $5 per hour for the first child attending in a family and $1 per hour for the remaining siblings attending at the same time.

A $1 per minute charge per child will apply if children are not picked up by 6:00pm.

 

Charges are pro-rated to the nearest quarter-hour.  Emailed statements are typically sent bi-monthly, but their distribution may be slightly altered by academic quarter breaks, holidays, and scheduled vacation breaks.  You do not need to wait until you receive your statement to make a payment; payments will be credited as received and will offset any balances owed on your account.  All EDM accounts must be paid in full by the end of the academic quarter to avoid a late fee and loss of the privilege of using the EDM program.
