Parents may choose one of two payment options for the school year:

True Flat Rate: Parents pay same weekly fee throughout school year. School year program flat rate does not include full day care on school district inservice days, or days when school is not in session. Families who choose the flat rate for the school year will not be able to use full day care on an inservice day.

Blended Rate: Covers full-day care during school district inservice days. Parents pay same weekly fee throughout school year. We have introduced the blended rate so that we do not have to adjust the bill balance on the account following an inservice day.

If you contract for the flat rate, and find that you will need care on an inservice day, you may change your contract to the blended rate prior to the inservice day. It will then remain at the blended rate for the school year.

Snow Policy

Emergency closing is provided at the Philipsburg Elementary School and early dismissal or delay of school care is available at the child’s regular school age program site.

Service on Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District planned break days will be provided at an alternate location.
