Pelican Plus

Both Extended Care and after school Lagniappes are provided through our Pelican Plus program. Extended Care provides after school care until 5:30 for students enrolled at St. James. Students can be signed up for full time (up to five days per week) or part time (one or two days per week). Lagniappes are after-school enrichment programs that offer students opportunities in sports, academics and the arts.

Extended Care

Families are provided with three Extended Care options:

Option A: Full Time Extended Care provides after school care Monday through Friday until 5:30. Students can enroll for the entire year or by quarter. The cost is $350 per quarter.

Option B: Part Time Extended Care provides after school care two days a week until 5:30 (students enroll for specific days of the week). Students can enroll for the entire year or by quarter. The cost is $150 per quarter.

Option C: Drop In Extended Care can be utilized by families not registered for Extended Care, but who need occasional after school care. To take advantage of this service, please email the Extended Care Director (amorris@stjameseds.org) in advance so that she can prepare accordingly.   The cost is $20 per day for Drop In Extended Care regardless of the amount of time spent in Extended Care. Students who are not picked up by 3:25 in carpool will be brought to Extended Care. 

During Extended Care, students are provided an afternoon snack and given time to complete homework.

Extended Care Policies
  • Student pick-up is conducted from the front office on Convention Street. 
  • Names of people other than the student’s parents or guardians must be on file with the office in order for that person to pick up your child.  They must provide a driver’s license at the time of pick up.
