Dear Parents and Guardians,

Lion Care, the before and after school program, would like to remind parents that although “Late Start Wednesdays” can cause a scheduling conflict for your family, we are here to help! We had great success with our families who needed Wednesday only care last year and would like to extend the same options this year. 

We will be offering three (3) payment options to parents: 

The first option: All 35 Late Start Wednesday's for $120. That's $3.42 for each of those days. In order to get this option, the amount must be paid in full up front.

The second option: $65 per semester. For the fall semester, that's $3.82 per Wednesday. For the spring semester, that's $3.61 per Wednesday. In order to get this option, the amount must be paid in full up front. 

The third option: $5.00 per Wednesday morning. 

Also, the $15.00 registration fee for those signing up for any of these packages will be waived. 

Children will need to be registered with our program with all of the necessary forms filled out before they will be allowed to attend.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me at 636-671-3470 ext. 14120 or at

Thank you,

Amanda Santure
