Madonna Parents:


Madonna is unique in a host of ways, but one way we’ve been different from every other school in town is not helping us, so we need to change it.


Every school we’re aware of, Catholic, private or public, charges for extra time of childcare before and after school outside of normal hours.  Madonna School now must do likewise.


Starting March 1st, Madonna will charge $5 for a student brought to school before 8:00 am; doors will open at 7:30 as they always have.  After school, Madonna will charge another $5 for a student who is still with us after 3:30 pm.  It is vital that students be picked up by 4:00 pm, as that is when our staff leaves.  Madonna will charge $10 for every 15 minutes a student is with us past 4:00 pm.


Please note that if a student is with us past 3:30 pm for a sports practice or similar extra-curricular activity, there will be no charge for that time.


If you have any questions regarding this policy, please call me at (402) 556-1883 or email me at


Sincerely yours, 

Jay Dunlap
