CVMS+ Before and After School Care
As a service to our families, we offer a very high quality before- and after-school program for enrolled early childhood and elementary students. CVMS+ provides a variety of supervised activities including art, music, drama, dance, games and opportunities for socialization through indoor and outdoor play. Older students are afforded an opportunity to complete school-related assignments.
CVMS+ After-School Care Policies
Sign-up. If you intend to use after-school care, you can sign up by the first day of school for pre-paid programs. Otherwise, please complete a scheduling form by the Thursday prior to the week you need care, and leave it in the marked basket outside the CVMS+ room.
Charges for students who are not signed up. Students who remain at the school after their class departs will be considered in the CVMS+ program, even if a parent has not registered them in advance. Since there is a cost to CVMS to operate CVMS+, we bill parents for the time they are in the program.
Sign-out. In order to ensure the safety and security of each student, we have a dual system for sign-out. A parent or designated caregiver must initial the sign-out sheet manually and also sign out on the computer located outside the CVMS+ room. Parents are responsible for knowing how to use this computer and also to teach their designated caregivers how to use it. In the event that a parent or caregiver fails to sign out electronically by 6:00 p.m., the CVMS+ staff will sign the child out at that time and the parents will be charged for the full time. We regret that once bills are generated, no adjustments can be made for incorrect sign-outs.
Authorized departure. We will not release a student to a stranger nor deviate from the regular schedule without a written note or verbal confirmation from a parent.
6:00 p.m. sharp! As a courtesy to our staff and for your child’s peace of mind, please be sure to arrive before 6:00 p.m. We have no staff on duty after that time. In the event that you arrive late, you will be charged $10.00 per child for every ten minutes after 6:00 p.m.
No CVMS+ fees during certain volunteer services. Parents who substi-tute in the classroom for a teacher or an assistant during school hours will not be charged for CVMS+ during the time they are volunteering.
Classroom substitutes and volunteers will sign their children in and out on separate sign-out sheets for that day. The CVMS+ Director is responsible for giving this information to the business manager.
Before school: 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
Drop off is available starting at 7:30 a.m. Please take advantage of this convenient service.
After school: 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Students may leave at any time, but must be signed out by a parent or designated adult.
CVMS+ is a fee-based program, with three exceptions:
There is no charge for morning CVMS+ for students enrolled in prepaid programs
There is no morning CVMS+ charge for elementary students who ride the bus, since they cannot control their schedule
There is no charge for early childhood and elementary students from 7:45 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. Please see the Fees and Tuition schedule for appropriate charges for all other situations.
CVMS+ is available in discounted prepaid programs available for signup by the first day of school.
Drop-in CVMS+ care if reserved by the Thursday prior to the week in which care is requested, is available at the regular hourly cost. Drop-in care not reserved by the prior Thursday will be charged at a higher rate.
