Before & After School Care
Saint Mark is licensed by the State of Hawaii to provide Before and After School Childcare for students up to grade six (no older than 12). Admission to the Before and After School Program is available to any student enrolled in our regular elementary school program up to grade six. Acceptance is on a first come basis by application. Students applying after we have reached the maximum allowed will be placed on a waiting list.
Admissions & Enrollment
Any student in grades K-6 not picked up by 3:00 p.m. will be admitted to our daycare and charged the unregistered fee of $6.00 per hour or any part thereof. Students in 7th and 8th grade will be required to wait in the school office and parents will be assessed a $6.00 per hour or any part thereof late fee.
A separate application form is used to register into either or both of the following:
- Before School Care: 6:30 – 7:15 a.m.
- After School Care: 2:45 – 5:45 p.m. (Wednesdays 1:15 – 5:45 p.m.)
Please refer to the application form for the current fee schedule. No differential rate, credit, or refund is given for only partial use of the program. Withdrawals will be charged up to the month in which the withdrawal is made. A fee may be charged to re-enroll after withdrawal.
Regular childcare rates will be charged to your account for late pickups at $6.00 per hour (or any part thereof) until 5:45 p.m. If possible, arrangements must be made with the school office ahead of time. After closing hours the rate is $5.00 for each 5-minute increment (or any part thereof).
Included in the program are school days that dismiss at 11:30 a.m. (except for the last day of the second quarter and the last day of school). Students are to bring their own lunch on those days. The program does NOT include vacation periods such as Fall Break, Christmas Break, and Spring Break.
All students must be signed in when dropped off into Before School Care and must be signed out when picked up from After School Care. No students are to be dropped off before 6:30 a.m.
The daily activities for the After School Care Program include outdoor play, homework, games, and arts and crafts. Students may attend on a drop-in status if there is room in after-school care on the day it is needed.
Field Trips & Transportation
We do not arrange field trips for this program since children are picked up after school within a wide range of times. All students are assigned a classroom area and are expected to remain on campus at all times until picked up by a designated adult. We do not provide transportation to and from school.
Students are held to the same standards that they observe during the school day. If students develop a pattern of discipline problems, they will not be permitted to continue in the Before and After Care program and must seek other supervision.
Illness & Medication
Students with communicable illnesses will not be permitted to attend childcare, and those that become ill while at the facility will be separated from other students and sent home with a parent or guardian.
Castle Medical Center is the closest medical facility to Saint Mark Lutheran School.
Special need items such as medicines must be given to the director so that they may be properly stored, administered, and checked out by the director in accordance with school policy.
Saint Mark Lutheran School facility is not set up to accommodate physically handicapped students; therefore, we will have to thoroughly evaluate and assess any student applicant with a physical handicap to determine the feasibility for our being able to properly care for them.
Fees and/or policies for the Before and After School Care Program will not change without at least 30 days notice.
