SUMMER DAY CAMP HOURS
Grant School Summer Day Camp will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday – Friday. No child should arrive before 7:00 a.m. or be picked up later than 6:00 p.m. (See late pick-up policy).
A signed permission slip must be submitted for each field trip. Grant School Bus Drivers will provide transportation. Children who exhibit inappropriate behavior, or disobey safety rules will be excluded from field trips. Permission slips for field trips must be turned in on Monday prior to the outing. Due to weather and scheduling of buses, field trip days and times may change if necessary.
A child causing discipline problems, bullying, causing injury to themselves or others, who cannot be redirected or cannot follow Day Camp rules and regulations will be considered in violation of the discipline policy. This type of inappropriate behavior will merit expulsion from the program. All discipline problems of a serious nature are documented for future reference. Parents are always advised, when a child has been written up for discipline problem. Under no circumstances is corporal punishment implemented, nor is a child ever treated in a humiliating, frightening or physically harmful manner.
LATE PICK-UP POLICY
This notice is to serve as a reminder of our policy regarding late pick-ups. Without exception, parents picking children up in Daycare after 6:05 p.m. will be charged a $15.00 automatic penalty plus $1.00 per minute thereafter. In a situation where a child has not been picked up before 8:00 p.m. and no contact has been made to our staff, in accordance with established policy, Child Protective Services will be called. We understand that emergencies can arise; however, it is the responsibility of each parent to have back-up support for these instances and not abuse our staff. Thank You.
A copy of court orders must be in the child’s file on the school premises in order to be followed by school personnel. State law mandates that a child must be released to either parent regardless of custody arrangements. The only exception is when a current restraining order is on file.
CHILD ABUSE POLICY
Child abuse is defined as any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker, which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse, or exploitation, or an act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm. In keeping with the California Penal Code SI 1166, all child care providers are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse, neglect or endangerment to the Children’s Protective Services or other specified agency. Grant School Summer Camp staff and volunteers receive instruction in identifying and reporting suspected child abuse.
Any child exhibiting signs of illness, (fever, nausea, etc.) will be isolated from the group and parents will be notified to pick up their child. A sick child must be picked up within one hour after contact. A child must be symptom free for at least 24 hours before returning to Summer Day Camp. We are not equipped to take care of a sick or recuperating child.
Trained staff members will immediately evaluate any accident that appears serious (broken bones, head, neck or internal injuries or any other trauma). If there are potential injuries such as above, the staff will call 911 and immediately notify- parents. All staff members are current on CPR and first aid.
All medications must be registered upon arrival with a staff member. Medications must be in the original prescription container with a label stating: Child’s name, medication name, dosage, dosage intervals, physician’s name and date prescription was filled. A request for Medication to be taken during school hour’s form must be completed and signed by both doctor and parent. The form will be kept on file in the Day Care Office. DO NOT send any medication unless it is absolutely necessary.
We look forward to meeting each family and sharing in our combined efforts to make this an outstanding summer camp experience for your child.
