CARE4KIDS BEFORE AND AFTER CARE
Dear Parent and Guardian,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We are looking forward to working with you this academic year. The Jumoke Academy Before and After Care program is designed to provide families with additional child care options. Students are encouraged to complete their homework during After Care. These services are offered to all families from 7:30 – 8:15am and 4:30 – 5:30pm. Please note multiple late pickups may result in a loss of After Care privileges.
If you wish to reserve a space for your child in the Before & After Care program, please complete and sign all attached forms and return to your child’s building’s main office staff, on or before August 25, 2016. This will assist us in providing appropriate staffing for the program. Your child will not be able to attend the program until all attached forms are completed and returned. Please review the enclosed forms regarding policy and procedures, monthly fees, financial assistance and student conduct.
Please feel free to contact us with any question and/or concerns. Once again, we look forward to working together for the 2016-2017 academic school year!

|Pick Up Time||Fee|
If a family/guardian has not contacted the school by 5:30pm, the staff members will attempt to reach the family using contact numbers provided. If the family is unreachable, staff members will contact the emergency names provided by the family.
On the first incident of lateness, a reminder about our policy will be given. On the second occasion, a written report is added to the child’s file for billing purposes. After three late pick-ups, a meeting will be scheduled to address any concerns and your child may be temporarily dismissed from the program.
Parents should make every effort to pick up their children by/or before the designated time. Please consider weather and traffic conditions when making your pick up arrangements. If you are unable to arrive by the scheduled closing time, you must notify the After Care Coordinator at 860.527.0575 ext. 846.

We expect all scholars to follow the same expectations during before and after care as during the regular school day. In the event that a scholar exhibits inappropriate behavior, the after care staff will take the following disciplinary action:
Minor Offenses: Disruptive behavior, Not following directions, Horse playing
- 1st offense – Scholar will receive a warning
- 2nd offense – Scholar will be separated from the group and given time to reflect.
- 3rd offense – Parent will be called to pick up the scholar for the day.
*Immediate consequences such as suspension from the before and after care program will be given if the scholar creates the following unsafe environment: Intentionally hurts another scholar, leaves the group without permission, uses rude/disrespectful language, and is physically and verbally abusive towards an adult and peer.
Unsafe or chronic disruptive behaviors may result in the scholar being suspended from the before and after care program for the remainder of the semester or school year. Scholars suspended from the before and after school program may not return until a meeting is held with the Dean of Students and Parent, at which this time, the length of the suspension is determined.
