For any drop-in approval questions, please contact Laney Farris at [email protected]. For any late pickup or drop-in billing questions, please contact Jes Brito at [email protected].

Late Pickups from School: After 2:50pm, there is a late pickup fee of $1 per minute that must be paid upon arrival. Teachers will be keeping track of late pickups. After 3:00pm, late pickups will be released to Afternoon Care and parents must pay the $60 Afternoon Care Drop-Off fee.

Pre-planned and unplanned extended care drop-ins are subject to different policies.

  1. Pre-registered, pre-paid drop-ins require approval from administration at least 48 hours prior to service. Pre-planned drop-ins are limited to twice per month. Parents requiring additional days will need to pay the full time rates for that month, and admission is dependent on space available. I understand submission of drop-in applications do not guarantee approval as my child’s placement will be determined by various factors including, but not limited to space/availability, ratio, student independence, and student behaviors.
  2. Drop-in requests that fall under the 48-hour policy are considered unplanned. I understand that per Mainspring Academy Policy, students must be picked up from school no later than 2:45pm. Late pick-ups from 2:50pm to 3:00pm will be charged $1 per minute. After 3:00, I am responsible for paying the $60 extended care drop-in fee. After two instances of un-planned drop-ins in the school-year, I will be charged $60 per annual occurrence (e.g. $180 on the 3rd occurrence, $240 on the 4th occurrence, $300 on the 5th occurrence).

Late Pickups from Aftercare: Students must be picked up from aftercare no later than 5:30pm. Parents will be charged $1 per minute for late pickups until 5:40pm. After 5:40pm, I am responsible for paying the $60 drop-in fee. After two instances of late pickups in the school-year, I will be charged $60 per annual occurrence (e.g. $180 on the 3rd occurrence, $240 on the 4th occurrence, $300 on the 5th occurrence). If there are four or more occurences, your child will be dismissed from the extended day program.
