School doors open at 7:30 a.m. Classes begin at 8:00 and students are dismissed at 3:00 p.m. Our school schedule allows for approximately 6 1/2 hours of instruction each day with a 40 minute lunch/recess period.
Before & After School Program
The St. Matthew Parish School Before and After School program provides professional care, supervision, recreation and enrichment activities for your child. It serves the working parent who desires both a Catholic education and supplementary before and after school care in a Christian environment.
The program is open only to students enrolled at St. Matthew Parish School in Preschool through Grade 8. Before Care opens at 6:30 am and After Care is open until 6:00 pm. Activities are to complement the philosophy of our school, including arts and crafts projects, recreation, and snack time. In addition, there is time set aside for homework completion each day.
Our goal is to provide individual attention, careful supervision, security and consistent care for the children of working parents. An experienced Coordinator and at least three assistants staff the program.
