  • Extended School Care

    The Extended School Care (ESC) program is an integral part of the mission and ministry of Christ Lutheran School. It serves a vital purpose, providing a safe, secure environment for children who arrive before and/or remain after the regular school day. ESC provides quality care that promotes each child’s basic needs through nurturing staff members and a planned environment. The setting is semi-structured and informal, designed to help children grow in Christ and in their relationship with each other and their families. ESC is open to all children of Christ Lutheran School from kindergarten through the eighth grade. The program offers before-school care beginning at 7:00 am and after-school care until 5:30 pm.

    On 12:30 release days, students enrolled in ESC will meet at 12:30 pm in the ESC room. 

    The fees for ESC are based on an hourly rate and are charged by the quarter hour.  Families are invoiced monthly for ESC use.  The Christ Lutheran School Extended School Care rate is $8 per hour, with a $12 per hour family rate for the 2023-2024 school year.
