Sign-In and Sign-Out Procedures

An authorized parent/guardian or person must sign out your child at time of pick up by initializing the Sign-Out Roster.

Children will not be permitted to leave with anyone not listed on their registration form.  The parent/guardian must notify us in writing of any person that they are authorizing to pick up their child who was not previously listed.  Phone calls are not an acceptable means of granting permission for a child to leave with an unauthorized adult, due to the fact that we may not be able to verify the caller's voice. 

A parent cannot be denied access to their child unless a court order is on file.

Scheduled and Unscheduled No School, School Opening Delays and School Closing

1.       Scheduled no school days-There will be no program on these days. We will monitor this for interest for interest for future openings.

2.       Unscheduled no-school days-There will be no program on days that school is canceled due to weather problems.  If bad weather forces early dismissal of students during school hours, the program will not operate.

Distribution of Medications

A Medication Authorization Form must be filled out for all prescriptions or over the counter medications.  The medication must be provided in the original container preprinted with or accompanied by the Doctor's instructions. This must be given to the adult team by the parent/guardian-not the child.  This is a safety issue.

Health and Safety

If your child has a known medical condition, please notify the Program Director on proper procedures for handling any crisis that might arise.  Please be sure to provide in writing any activity that your child may not participate in that may aggravate his/her condition.  You must provide all special food requirements for your child.
