Backpack is St. Paul’s affordable before- and after-school care program for working parents.

Backpack is available from 6:45 AM to 6 PM on school days beginning in August, and ending in late May or early June.  Hourly and monthly rates are available for Backpack services depending on a family’s needs.  The Backpack room is located north side of the building where students are dropped off and picked up.  Students will only be released to persons identified on Backpack registration forms.  Afternoon snacks (after 4 PM) are available for purchase individually for $.50 or for an annual fee of $80.


Backpack begins at 6:45am and ends at 6pm, so it will work with even very demanding schedules. Backpack is available throughout the school year, excepting only Christmas and Spring Break.  There is also a Summer Program for registered students to attend.



Backpack costs just $4.00 per hour, or  $200.00 a month for K-8 student. Preschool care is available for $400.00 a month.



Your child will be in a safe environment, receive help on homework and enjoy playtime with their friends.
