DESCRIPTION

We offer the Ss. Simon & Jude After-School Enrichment program only to the students of Ss. Simon & Jude School in grades Pre-K-6. We are licensed by the State of Arizona Department of Health Services. The Administrator is Sr. Raphael Quinn, and the Director is Marcia Wilhardt. Please address all inquiries, messages, and payments to Mrs. Wilhardt. The supervisor, teachers, and aides are all personnel of the school who have been screened by Sr. Raphael, and are authorized by her to work in the program.

OPTIONS

You may choose one of three options for your child: FULL-TIME, STUDY SKILL ENHANCEMENT, and DROP-IN. Whichever option you choose when you enroll your child, you can change it at the end of the designated pay period. We expect parents to use this change of options judiciously and not frequently. An abuse of this privilege will result in a return to the original option you chose at the time of enrollment, with its respective pay schedule. Parents are required to submit a written statement of withdrawal from the program in order for their child(ren) to be removed from the roster.

Field Trips will not be offered to students participating in any of the three options. Transportation is not available to and from the facilities. The program is covered under liability insurance.
