Days of Operation:

  • There will be no after school programming on days that St. George School is not in session, including vacations, teach workshops and snow days.
  • The after school program will not operate on early release snow days.
  • Families will receive credit for days closed due to weather.  Credits will be applied to the online account for use toward future registrations. No refunds will be issued.

Medications:

  • Will not dispense medications to students except Epi-pens and emergency inhalers.

Attendance / Illness:

  • Students may not attend the program if they did not attend school that day or were sent home from school for behavior problems or illness.
  • You are responsible for the monthly fee whether your child attends or not.
  • If your student will not be attending the after-school program for any reason, you must notify the program director by noon on that day. There is a $10 no call fee each time you do not notify us that your student will not attend a day. School employees are not responsible for notifying the after-school program that a student will not be attending! 
  • Parents are responsible for notifying the school that their student is attending the after-school program.
  • Students who are ill may not attend the program. This includes fever, diarrhea, vomiting, excessive congestion and any contagious illness.
  • If your student becomes ill at school, they may not attend the after school program and must be picked up at school and not from the after school program.
  • If your student becomes ill during the after school program, you will be notified to pick them up as soon as possible but no longer than 30 minutes.
  • If your student does not attend school, he or she may not attend the after school program.
  • Students must be fever free (without the use of medications) and have had no bouts of vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to the program.
  • You are still required to pay for days your student is out due to illness.

Pick Up Policy:

  • You must sign our your student when you pick them up at the school and notify a staff member that you are leaving. Do not send in another child to pick up your student.
  • Students will only be released to people specified as alternate pick ups in the registration system. Any changes must be in writing or made in the registration system.
  • Anyone other than the parent or guardian will need to provide photo identification to sign out a student.
  • Students must be picked up at the school by 5:30 p.m. If you are late, you will be charged a $5 late fee for each 5 minute interval. After 10 minutes, staff will call people from emergency contact or authorized pick up lists to come and pick up your student.
  • If a student is not picked up by 6 p.m. and attempts to contact parents, guardians or emergency contacts have been unsuccessful, the police will be notified.

Releasing Students to Visibly Impaired People:

  • The safety of the students in our program is our number one concern. We feel this extends through the release of the student to their parent/guardian at the end of each day.
  • If a parent/guardian or other approved pick up person arrives to pick up a student and exhibits behavior such as slurred or incoherent speech, difficulty walking or other unusual behaviors that may indicate use of drugs and/or alcohol, staff will take the following actions:
    • The staff member will inform the person of their concerns and discuss those concerns.
    • The staff member will inquire about the person’s means of transportation for the student.
    • The staff member will notify their supervisor of the situation.
    • The staff member will call emergency contacts to provide an alternative pick up for the student.
    • If the person insists on driving in an impaired condition, the staff will inform them that they will call the police and give the name of the driver and passengers, vehicle information, home address and their concern that the student is in danger.
    • A call will also be made to the Department of Health and Human Services.
    • The Director will telephone the parent/guardian the next day to arrange a meeting which will include the staff member, to discuss the incident and review the policy.
    • A second incident will result in ending the after school services for that family.
