JCPRD Out-of-School-Time (OST) Programs are located at the elementary schools. Most of our OST Programs operate out of the school cafeteria/commons daily. There may be changes to this based upon school activities.
Fees are charged weekly, every Friday, in advance of care. Fees must be set up on recurring automatic payments via credit or debit card on your ActiveNet account. If you have questions or concern with payment, call our Registration Office at 913-831-3359.
Fees are determined by the overall cost of the program and are charged at the same weekly rate, regardless of attendance. Fees are not prorated for absences, holidays, or emergency closures.
Enrollment information can be found at https://www.jcprd.com/221/Out-of-School-Time-OST. You must create an ActiveNet account and add the program option you desire. You will set up your reoccurring payment and pay the registration fee at that time. You then will receive an invite from ePACT to complete your required Emergency Forms for your child’s file [Health History, Authorization for Emergency Medial Care, and Medication Administration Form (only if your child will take medication during program hours)].
You set up reoccurring payments at the time of registration, when you select your program option on ActiveNet. The Registration Office phone number is 913-831-3359, and they are open 8:30a-5:00p if you have additional questions regarding payment. Payments will then be charged weekly, in advance of care, beginning the Friday prior to your child’s start date.
Our Before School Program opens at 7am and our After School Program closes at 6pm. No early drop-offs and there is a $1.00 per minute late fee charged for late pick-ups past 6pm.
Yes, a Part Time option (1-3 days/week) is available. Days must be consistent from week to week.
To request a change in your current programming options or to drop from the program, please complete the Change/Drop Request Form found at the bottom of your OST district's webpage. We require a one week notice to drop the program, and a $15 change fee for any changes to program options. Changes are subject to program availability.
All-Day Programming (7am-6pm) is available on "No School Days" for Remote Learning Days, Teacher In-Service/Professional Days, and Conference Days at our consolidated locations. These All-Day Programming days are included in the normal fee payment for children enrolled Full Time in our Afterschool Program (no extra charge). There is a $30 fee if the 'no school day' does not fall on a regularly scheduled day for Part Time enrollees. A $25 fee applies to Before School Only participants.
If there is an early dismissal day, our After School Program will begin at that dismissal time. There is no extra charge for early dismissal days if you are enrolled in After School Program on that day already.
Homework time will be provided, with assistance from a staff member if needed, for children who choose to do their homework in JCPRD. Please communicate with staff if your child must complete their homework during the program.
Before School Program includes a healthy breakfast snack and time to get ready for the day. Activity choices include homework time, quiet reading, or games with friends.
After School Program includes a healthy afternoon snack as well. Children choose activities that may include STEAM activities, SEL learning, sports, group games, community services, arts & crafts, cooking projects, environmental awareness, and much more! Always send sensible shoes and weather appropriate clothing for your children, as we will spend a portion of our day outside.
JCPRD does not provide services on major holidays and any custodial holidays throughout the year. See our Parent Handbook for a full list of these dates. Weekly tuition does not change on weeks that have holidays/closures. These have already been factored in the over tuition for the school year.
Yes, but you would pay weekly regardless of attendance, as we do not prorate for absences. Fees are based upon reservation and not attendance.
