    Revised 8/14/2012 Late Pick-Up

    Children are to be picked up by the program’s closing time. A late pick-up fee (of $15.00) will be charged for each 15 minute increment the parent or guardian is late in picking up each of his/her children (i.e. (1-15 minutes; 16-30 minutes; 31-45 minutes, etc.). The clock used for time is the clock found at the pick-up location. All outstanding late pick-up fees must be paid before the next payment period begins. Any late pick-up fee not paid by the end of the pay period may become a “student obligation” and applied to the student’s permanent record. Three late pick-ups may result in children being withdrawn from the program.

     

    Discipline

    All children attending the Program are expected to follow the “Code of Student Conduct” for Broward County Public Schools, (BCPS).

    Inappropriate behaviors, including but not limited to, bullying and cyberbullying, are not acceptable. Children who cannot follow the daily acceptable behaviors will be placed on a Behavior Plan. The consequences for misbehaviors will vary from a time out, missing an activity, suspension, or being exited from the program.  If a child’s behavior endangers or injures another individual, the child may be immediately exited from the program.

     

    Attendance

    Attendance is taken daily within the first twenty minutes of the program’s start time. If a child does not report to the program, and is not on the official absentee list or early dismissal list, the parent, guardian or emergency contact will be notified to verify the child’s absence. If a child is not going to attend the program for any reason, it is the parent’s responsibility to inform the Supervisor by calling the program or school’s telephone number and leaving a message prior to the program’s start time.
