CHAPTER 4: BEFORE & AFTERCARE; VISITORS

 

 

School begins each morning, Monday through Friday, at 8:10 a.m. School ends at 3:30 p.m. Before and after care are provided at a cost of only $2.50 per hour. Before care begins at 7:00 a.m. and ends at 8:00 a.m. After care begins at 3:45 p.m. and ends at 6:00 p.m. Parents will be billed for before and after care through SmartTuition, the company that collects tuition for our school.

 

Parents must bring their children into the school for before care and sign them in. Likewise, parents must come into the school to sign their children out of after care. No child will be released to any person who is not on the pick-up list. The pick-up list is a list that you provide of persons who may pick up your child. The person will be asked to produce photo ID until well acquainted with staff. If you must have someone pick up your child who is not on the list, then you must call the school before pickup time, give your password, and inform us of the identity of the person who will be picking up your child. The person, upon arriving at the school to pick up your child, will be asked to show valid photo ID (e.g. State Driver’s License).

 

If a parent is going to be later than 6:00 p.m. when picking up a child from after care, than he/she should call the school to report the emergency circumstance. If a student is not picked up from after care by 6:00 p.m., the parent will charged $1 per minute for every minute after 6:00 p.m. If the child is not picked up by 7:00 p.m., police will be called.

 

 

Visitors

 

All visitors must come to the office and obtain a visitor’s badge. A visitor is anyone other than a student, teacher, or staff member. Persons in the building without a badge will be viewed as intruders and will be reported to police.

 

 

Re-Entry into Classrooms

 

Classrooms will be closed at 3:45 p.m. each day unless a parent schedules a meeting with a teacher ahead of time. If a student forgets books or other items, he must retrieve them the following day.
