Before and Beyond the Bell (Morning or Afternoon Care Program)

**COVID-19 mitigation measures are currently in place with the BTB programs**

Space is limited due to space restrictions and is based upon receipt date of a completed form for of the 2021-2022 school year.  

Mitigation measure may include wearing full face masks; regularly reminders of personal hygiene (wash hands and use hand sanitizer), using appropriate cough/sneeze etiquette, spaces sanitized frequently, and social distancing if conditions warrant increased measures in the future. 

At this time Beyond the Bell is at capacity and no longer accepting new students. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

SGGS offers parents a before and after childcare program entitled Before/Beyond the Bell.  The program is offered to parents at an additional fee billed monthly or on an as-needed (drop-in) basis.  Students are provided with homework assistance, a nutritious snack, and supervised recess. 

The hours of the before school program are Monday through Friday, 6:30 to 7:30 AM and the after-school program, 2:45 – 6:00 PM, (Noon– 6 PM on Noon Release Days, and 1:30 – 6 PM on Early Release Days). The program is held in the school Dining Hall (Immaculata Hall).  Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, additional classrooms may be used in Guardian Angel Hall and Vianney Hall as warranted.   

Any student that is not picked up from school by 3:00 PM will be taken to the after-school program until a parent or guardian arrives.  Parents/Guardians of these students will be billed as drop-ins if the student remains after 3:00 PM.  

Students participating in various after school activities must remain with the teacher or moderator until that activity is completed and the parent/guardian picks them up.  No student may remain unaccompanied by an adult.  For after school activities that do not begin directly after school, students enrolled in Beyond the Bell program must sign in and attend the program until they are picked up by the activity teacher or moderator. 

All students attending after-school activities must report to the Beyond the Bell program if a parent cannot pick them up after the activity is over and it is before 6:00 PM.  No student can be signed out to anyone without proper identification.
