Before & After School CatCare Program

12/16/21 UPDATE
Beginning January 4, 2022, after school CatCare will be moving to the Upper Elementary. All Primary and Elementary students who participate in the after school program will begin riding a shuttle bus from their building to the Upper Elementary for after school CatCare.

Students will still be kept in groups based on their grade, but all will be housed in one building. Parents, this means you will be able to pick up all of your children from one location every afternoon! The hours and prices will remain the same. For those that have never picked up from the Upper Elementary, simply enter the doors labeled “GYM” on the southwest side of the building and someone will be there to check your student(s) out. To reach CatCare program after regular school hours, please call (417)838-8848.

Before school is NOT changing. All students attending our before school program are still to be dropped off at the building they attend.




Before and After School CatCare is available for students K-6 at the Primary School, Elementary School, and Upper Elementary School. Students must attend at the school in which they are enrolled as a daytime student. There will not be bus transportation from one school to another. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
