September 1 is the second tuition pull of the school year. If you are set up for monthly tuition, you will always be charged on the first of the month. If you are set up for semi-monthly payments, your account will be charged on the first and the fifteenth.
September 1 is also the first Before Care and After Care pull of the year. The Before Care and After Care charges are charged separately and you are only charged for what you use.
Below is a list of frequently asked questions, tips and a Before Care and After Care tuition calendar for your reference.
Question: What do I do if I suddenly need to use Before Care or After Care and haven’t signed up?
1. Notify the office so that I can let the Before Care and After Care staff know to anticipate an extra student.
2. Make sure whoever is picking up is on your emergency sheet, and if possible, that they are fingerprinted ahead of time.
Question: How is Before Care and After Care charged?
Answer: The ELC school day is from 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., if you drop off prior to 8:20 a.m., you will be charge $2.50, per half hour. If you pick up after 3:40 p.m., you will be charged $2.50 per half hour. The check-in system is a calculator and uses your check-in and check-out times to generate the tuition pull for Before Care and After Care.
Question: What if I didn’t sign up for Before Care and After Care but will need it occasionally?
Answer: If you haven’t already, please get a Before Care/After Care form from the office and fill it out. You will only be charged with what you use, however we do use the form to make sure that we are staffed appropriately.

A couple tips…
· Watch the clock. Our check-in system is automated, which means that if you check in at 8:19 a.m. or 3:41p.m., you will be charged $2.50.
· Make sure to see the office if you have trouble checking in or out.
Please note: We understand that the first week of school, drop off was a bit earlier than normal. If you checked in between 8–8:19 a.m., we will waive the $2.50 fee for that week.
