Health, Safety and Attendance

Attendance and Lateness: Please alert the assistant director at regarding any absences planned or unplanned, if you are picking up early or running late. You also need to update EVCS day school administrators and your child’s teacher as per their protocol. If your child is absent during day school, especially if s/he is sick, they can not attend AfterSchool. The only exception to this rule, at least for this current semester,*** is Pre-K/K non-attendance days during which kids can return to attend AfterSchool. We reserve the right to charge a late fee of $10 applied every ten minutes you are late.

***This policy is subject to change in future semesters.

Allergies: If your child is allergic to any foods or medications, be sure to tell us when you register.

Medication: If your child needs medication and is too young to administer it by themselves, you must provide an adult on site to do so. In addition, please provide the AfterSchool coordinator with any medical history information that may be helpful in best caring for your child.

Medical conditions and equipment: Bear in mind that the day school does not share information about your child with AfterSchool. So please inform AfterSchool about any and all medical and academic information that will help your child have a safe and rewarding AfterSchool experience. Be certain that medical equipment such as inhalers or EpiPens are easily accessible in the child’s backpack (an extra unit) since we can not rely on access to the Nurse’s Office nor the child’s homeroom after hours. Also inform AfterSchool administration and individual instructors to cover all bases. Please also include any insights regarding special needs or considerations for your child while they are in our care. Although we have limited resources and staff to, we will certainly make a capital effort to address and work with kids and families.

Snacks: For budgetary and licensing purposes, DOE or other snacks are not currently provided. Please pack snack for your child when he/she is staying for AfterSchool. Be sure to lean toward healthier options and avoid candy, soda, any peanut-based snacks and gum. Thank you.
