J-Care Frequently Asked Questions

How do I drop off and pick up my child(ren)?

St. John’s School is a secured building. The J-Care entrance is on the west side of the building next to the playground. Enter the building using Door #4. Inside of Door #4, there is an interior door with a pin pad. Each family will be issued a family code to access the pin pad door after you have attended J-Care three times. This code is for adult use only, so please do not share it with your child or anyone else. It should only be used by parents and emergency contacts. A phone number is posted on the door for those families who do not yet have a code.

Drop off:
  • Enter your code on the pin pad by the interior door inside of Door #4. On the other side of the pin pad door is a parent table – this is next to Door #5.
  • When you arrive at the parent table, call the J-Care phone (651-261-9113). A staff member will meet you at the bottom of the stairwell.
  • The J-Care staff member will then walk with your child to the cafeteria. Please note: Only students and staff will be allowed in the cafeteria.
Pick up:
  • Enter your code on the pin pad by the interior door inside of Door #4. On the other side of the pin pad door is a parent table – this is next to Door #5.
  • When you arrive at the parent table, call the J-Care phone (651-261-9113).
  • A J-Care staff member will bring your child and their belongings to you. You should remain at the parent table until your child arrives.

Please allow extra time, each day, at drop off and pick up. No child, no matter what their age is, will be allowed to come into J-Care by themselves.

If you do not have a code and have attended J-Care at least three times, please contact Katie Adams, the J-Care Director, at adamskatie@stjohnnyb.org or 651-261-9113.


How does billing work?
  • All billing is done through TADS. You will be billed the first week of each month (for the previous month),with payments due on the 25th of each month.
  • J-Care bills families by signing your child in and out using an app on an iPad.
  • In order to bill accurately this year, due to COVID-19, J-Care will be taking an additional measure to ensure you are charged the appropriate amount. Staff will sign your child in and out on the iPad. We also have a sheet on the parent table inside Door #5 that we will have you initial by your child’s name as well as mark the time being dropped off or picked up.
  • Failure to initial the sheet and mark the time at each drop off and/or pick up will automatically result in being charged a full day’s rate.
