Before and After School Care

     We understand the needs of families for childcare when moms and/or dads work full-time. That is why all DCS students in preschool through sixth grade will have the opportunity to attend the Before/After School Care Program. Registration is automatic with your DCS registration. Weekly schedules are appreciated, but not necessary.

     The Before School Care Program opens at 6:30am and ends at 7:45am. Any student arriving to school before 7:45 am will be charged $4.00 for Before School Care.

     The After School Care Program begins at 3:15pm, following the end-of-the-school-day pickup. Any student not picked up by 3:15pm, will automatically go to the After School Care Program. Preschool students will begin After School Care at 2:40pm. 

     Families will be billed weekly, and are expected to pay weekly through the DCS office. 

     After School Care closes at 5:30 pm. Students should be picked up from the "Big Room" (Lunch Room). There will be a $1.00 per minute late pick-up fee charge for parents who pick their child up AFTER 5:30pm. 

     There is no After School Care on DCS-scheduled half days.
