ONLY THE PERSON THAT SIGNED THE REGISTRATION FORM IS ALLOWED TO VIEW OR ALTER THE FORM.
     
  • Homework - There will be time available for homework; however, it is not our sole responsibility.  The staff will seek the cooperation of parents, day teachers, and the child to complete homework.  We can not provide one-on-one tutoring for students at Extended Day Care.
     
  • Meals will be provided through the School's Food Services Department each afternoon.  There is no additional cost for meals.
     
  • Part of our program may include the availability of the school computer lab for scheduled use by students.  Different educational and recreational programs are available depending on site and age group.  Internet use may also be available.  Parental permission is assumed by signing the Extended Day registration form.  If you do not want your child to participate in the computer lab please provide a written note to the Site Manager.
     
  • We often use candid photography in our program and photos may be used in scrapbooking activities, Facebook, art projects, bulletin boards, promotion and archives of our program.  Parental permission is assumed by signing the Extended Day registration form.  If you do not want your child to participate in being photographed please provide a written note to the Site Manager.
