After School Program
Panther Care is an extended care program provided by BCS for BCS Elementary students.
Panther Care is available after full days that school is in session and begins at 3:15 pm and ends at 5:30 pm. Children may be picked up by any of the pre-authorized adults on your pick-up list on RenWeb. Panther Care costs $10 per student, per daily attendance and is billed monthly to your FACTS account.
Should you decide to use our Panther Care program, please fill out an Intent to Attend form (attached) and send it to your child’s teacher or to the Elementary front office.
Panther Care Flexible Schedule:
We begin our afternoon with silent homework time. Students are encouraged to keep a book to read in their backpacks for when they do not have homework. Kindergarten is engaged in story circle during this time.
After homework time, we go outside for free play. This is also an opportunity for children to eat a snack they have brought from home - snacks are not provided by Panther Care.
Lastly, we have various inside activities such as prayer time, board games, crafts, movies, and computer lab.
Should you have a change in plans regarding your child’s attendance any certain day, please communicate that with their teacher. Teachers will drop off students who are not picked up from the car line to Panther Care at 3:15 pm.
BCS Main Campus Panther Care is available after full days that school is in session from 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm. Panther Care costs $10 per day for attendance and it will be billed monthly to your FACTS account. For a preschooler to attend Panther Care, we request that they fill out an Intent to Attend form (attached) and return it to their child’s teacher or to the Elementary front office. Students that have not been picked up from preschool by the 2:45 pm deadline will be considered an attendee of Panther Care and will be charged the daily fee of $10.
Preschool students will be transported by a BCS school bus to the main campus where they will then be received by the BCS Panther Care staff in the Elementary auditorium. For the safety of all students, pick-up will not be an option while students are departing the bus.
Children may be picked up by pre-authorized adults on your pick-up list in RenWeb, after 3:00 and before 5:30. If you arrive early at the main campus, you are welcome to check in at the Elementary office.
