For the convenience of our families, St. Thomas offers an extended day program known as C.A.R.E.S. (Children Are Receiving Extended Services)

Before CARES

BEFORE CARES will begin on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.

WHEN: 7:00-7:50am.  Pre-K students move to their classrooms until their day begins at 9:00am, but MUST arrive between 7:00 and 7:50am.

WHERE: New School Gym

RATE: $5.00 per morning regardless of drop-off time.  

BILLING: Bills are sent out at the end of the month for the days used. 



AFTER CARES will begin on Thursday, September 8, 2016.

To reach someone during After Cares Hours: 484-262-9420


WHEN: FULL days of school only, and will run from 3:00 – 5:30pm.  Please make sure to check the school calendar for any additional changes to CARES. It is important that your child knows when they will be attending cares to avoid confusion and tears at the end of the day.  For parents of younger students, it helps to provide a note to the teacher communicating which days your child will be attending CARES.

WHERE: Faculty room located on the second floor

PICK-UP: In order to enter the building to pick up your child you must ring the doorbell located to the right of the main gym doors.

Your child will be offered time to do their homework, play with friends, or enjoy the fresh air outside. We can only suggest the children start their homework in CARES, we can’t force them.

SNACKS: Snacks may be purchased for $.50 or students may bring their own snack
