We understand that situations do occur that cause students to need to leave early or miss a day altogether. The bulleted items contain examples of excusable reasons for signing out of the program early or missing the program.

Please speak to your child’s Site Coordinator regarding any excuse that is not listed.

  • Illness
  • Religious
  • Suspension from school

Parallel Program such as school sponsored homework club, Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts, sports league, band, choir, martial arts, etc.  (see early release policy in registration packet)

Excessive early release is a serious threat to program funding. For this reason, all early dismissals, absences and parallel programs need to be documented and will require proof of activity from parent/guardian in the form of parallel program/activity schedule, doctor’s note, or letter from parent/tutor/coach.

Late arrival to the program is only acceptable for the reasons listed above.

Repeated late pick-ups, pattern of poor attendance, failure to meet the attendance requirements or failure to pay late pick up fee can result in the removal of your child from the program.
