Mission StatementThe primary goal of Our Lady of Good Counsel Latchkey Program is to provide an environment that fosters each child’s development.
Together parents and staff can make this Mission Statement a reality. This is accomplished through:
- Instructing and nurturing our children in their faith journey by establishing a Christian atmosphere of love, respect, personal responsibility, and social concern.
- Providing a sound foundation of academic excellence through a learning process that encourages intellectual inquiry for future achievement in all areas of life.
- Recognizing that each child is different and has unique talents and skills.
ADMISSIONS POLICY: REGISTRATION
LATCHKEY IS AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS FROM Y5 TO 8TH GRADE.
Every child must register to enter the OLGC Latchkey Program. The registration fee is $50.00 per family and is not refundable. This fee covers the current school year and is not applied toward the monthly payment.
The following must be completed before a child can attend the program:
- Registration form and fee
- Child placement contract
- Emergency card
- Child information card
Withdrawals should be written notification addressed to the directors of the program.
The OLGC Latchkey directors may refuse admission on continued enrollment in the program due to filled quotas, past history of behavior problems, truant payments, parents repeatedly late in picking up a child, or with any reason deemed to be in the interest of the program.
Each school year registration priority will be given to those currently enrolled in the OLGC Latchkey Program. These families will be notified of impending enrollment, and must register on or before the registration deadline date. Any registration application turned in after the deadline will be treated as a new family application and will be considered on a first come, first serve basis. Other families not currently enrolled in the program will be considered, as applications are received. As openings occur, these people will be notified.

HOLIDAY AND SCHOOL CLOSURES
OLGC Latchkey Program follows the school’s calendar. If the school closes because of weather or building problems, OLGC Latchkey Program will also be closed. In case of an emergency, OLGC Latchkey Program will follow the disaster plans developed by the school.
There will be a $1.00 late fee (per child) for every minute past 6:00 p.m. This fee will be added to your billing statement. Although phone calls make us aware of your delay, this does not eliminate the late fee, as the staff of OLGC Latchkey Program is still caring for your child. Please let us know if you are anticipating being late since this helps relieve your child’s anxiety when the other children have been picked up. If late pick-ups become frequent, we will not be able to provide service and will forced to drop your child from the program.
If you have more than one child enrolled in the OLGC Latchkey Program you will receive a 10% discount for additional siblings.
