The school conducts registration in the early spring. School families are given the first opportunity to register for the next school year. Then the parish community is notified of open registration. Registration is completed by submitting a Registration/Information Form for each student along with the family registration fee. This is a non-refundable fee. All other fees are due by May 31st. Your registration fee will be deducted from tuition. Registrations are dated when received. Classes are filled in this order (depending on date received):
- Returning students
- Current school families with new students
- Parish families with new students
- Non-parish families with new students
St. Michael Catholic School operates one bus which takes up to two routes. If necessary the “Greater Greenfield route covers areas in town. The “Country route” covers the area west of town and in the county. Bus routing is done by the Transportation Committee and is limited by time and distance. There are some areas, both in the county and in subdivisions, which are simply too far for the bus to travel. Our goal is to have the children on the school bus the least amount of time possible. Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year we are no longer able to transport students under 5 years of age. Parents who are interested in having bus service should call the school for more information. Parents who feel their child/children may occasionally utilize the bus service should fill out the Bus Contract so it may be kept on file for reference. Please note that with just one bus and afternoon service only it is important to give notice about your child/children riding. Space and routes are limited.
After Care/Before Care
St. Michael School offers the After School Care Program for students whose parents cannot pick them up at dismissal time. On a normal school day, this program is offered from dismissal (3:00 PM) until 5:30PM. The program will usually start in the Fr. Severin Life Center until 3:45 and then weather permitting may travel outside. At 5:00, students may transition to an available spaces to open the gym area up for practices and other activities. The program will consist of recreational activities, snack time, and study time. When the weather is agreeable, students will play outside.
Any student who is not picked up by 3:15 is automatically sent to After Care, and parents will be charged accordingly. The fees for After Care are $3.00/ hour for individual students or $6/per hour family for a daily rate. Families may choose to pay $30/week for individual students or $60/family. Payments will be made on a bi-weekly basis as agreed upon in the ASC Contract. The After Care Director takes attendance each day, and parents are to sign their children out when they pick them up. Billing is done through the school office. Prompt payment is expected. Outstanding fees may result in being denied from the program.
Any parent who has not picked up his/her student from After Care by 5:30 PM will be charged $1.00 for for every minute they are late. If a parent does not pick up their child until after 6:00PM on two separate occasions a meeting will take place with the Principal to determine continuance in the After Care Program.
