BE RESPECTFUL: Each student is expected to be respectful and kind to all staff, adult volunteers, high school volunteers, peers and property.
1. WARNING: If your child is not following the directions of a staff member, a verbal warning will be given to your child indicating they have a choice to follow directions or “take five” where they will sit apart from the group for five minutes. Sometimes a little break from the activity will help students regroup and regain focus.
2. TAKE FIVE: If your child continues to choose not to follow the directions of a staff member, the staff member will let your child know that he or she needs to take five minutes apart from the group to regroup and try again.
3. TRY AGAIN TOMORROW: If after a verbal warning and a “take five” your child is still not following directions, your child will be asked to try again tomorrow. At this point, the student is not working on his or her own work and has become a distraction to others trying to work. Your child will be sent home if you can be reached for permission. If a parent cannot be reached to give permission, your child will be separated from the rest of the group until the program is over. By using the “try again tomorrow” plan, we hope to create a calm and positive working environment for all students in the program, while assuring your child that he or she can come back the next day and try again.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REMOVE A CONSISTENTLY DISRUPTIVE AND DISRESPECTFUL STUDENT. We also will not refund any monetary amounts from days that student missed because of behavior or other absence.
