Khalsa Elementary Extended Care
Khalsa Extended Care, run by Khalsa Montessori Elementary School, provides care for elementary-aged students before school, after school and during in-service or vacation days. Care is provided in a fun and supportive environment with consistency towards basic Montessori principles. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of structured and unstructured activities, indoors and outdoors. The program will also offer students a space and time to consistently work on homework.
The program is operated along Department of Health Service guidelines and annually inspected to maintain compliance. The staff is CPR and First Aid certified and undergoes annual training mandated by the department. All staff employed in the afterschool program will maintain a valid Fingerprint Clearance Card (FCC).
Khalsa Aftercare is offered throughout the school year, except for one week in December, first two weeks in August (called school Set-up weeks), all federal holidays observed as per school year calendar, and the last day of school. During the summer months, care for students after school is provided through Khalsa Montessori Primary School.

In addition to students who are registered for Khalsa Extended Care, emergency care as per the school’s Elementary Late Pick-Up Policy will be provided to those students whose parents are unable to arrive within the grace period for student pick up at the end of the school day. Parents who utilize emergency care will be billed $10 per 30 minutes for the first two emergencies and $20 per 30 minute for each subsequent one. Parents with a balance due past 15 days will be notified in writing and emergency care will not be provided until any outstanding balance has been paid in full.
Students will only be released to parents or caregivers who are authorized by parents on the Emergency Form (Blue Card). Parents are requested to keep the form updated throughout the school year. Caregivers coming to pick up a student for the first time will be asked to show a valid form of ID before student is released. Parents are urged to share information about the location, process and manner of pickup when a caregiver is coming for the first time. Students will not be released to anyone younger than 18 yrs.
Since care is offered for students until 6pm every weekday, students should be picked up no later than 6pm. Late fees begin to accrue after 6pm. The cost will be $5 for every 5 minute increment. The Khalsa Extended Care Director will give the parent a courtesy call after 10 minutes. If either parent is unreachable, the staff will attempt to reach each of the contacts listed on the Emergency Form.
