Extended Day Program

The Extended Day Program is available from:

7:00 AM until 8:00 AM

3:00 PM until 6:00 PM

*Please note:  $5.00 per minute every five minutes past 6:00 PM will be assessed as a late fee.  A phone call will be made by the EDP staff at 6:00 PM. If there is no contact with a parent or guardian, and no one has picked up the child by 6:15 PM, a call will be placed to the principal and the non-emergency phone number of the Des Plaines Police Department.

The Saint Zachary School Extended Day Program (EDP) strives to provide a safe, caring, and structured environment for our students. Staffed by professional teachers, our program provides a flexible schedule of recreation, homework, quiet time, and snack time.

Only students enrolled in Saint Zachary School full-time, including full-day pre-school, will be allowed to register for the Extended Day Program. Students enrolled in the afternoon pre-school are only eligible to register for EDP with the principal’s permission.  

EDP is only available on days that school is in session. A weather emergency or other emergency, which causes the school to close, will also result in the cancellation of EDP. On early dismissal days, EDP will operate from the time the school day ends until 6:00 PM, unless otherwise noted.

Your child/children must be registered in the program to attend at any given time.  

A $50 registration fee will be billed through your FACTS account. Please fill out the EDP Registration Form and the EDP Emergency Form and submit to the school office.

Please reference our EDP handbook for additional policies and billing information.
