CARE4KIDS BEFORE AND AFTER CARE
Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we plan for our 2018-2019 school year, we would like to remind you of an update to our Before & After School Program. Because Jumoke Academy is registered as a Care 4 Kids provider and receives federal funding, we must now adhere to additional federal mandates.
One of the recent mandates requires we have Before & After School Program Registration Forms, Health Forms, and signed Acknowledgement of Policies on file for all Jumoke Academy scholars, whether or not you intend to use the program. Unforeseen circumstances may arise during the year when your scholar may need to attend the Before & After School Program. With these required forms on file, Jumoke Academy will be in compliance with federal regulations.
To keep our program in compliance, please complete and return the Jumoke Academy Before and After School Program Registration Form, Health Form, and signed Acknowledgement of Policies included in this packet. If you do not plan to use the services, please check “Daily: Drop-In Only” as the program desired.
If you have any questions regarding the Before & After School Program, please contact our Finance Office at 860-904-7830.
Thank you for your cooperation.

After Care Program Late Pick-up
Late pick-up fees are imposed if a child is not picked up by closing time of 5:30pm. The following fee will be charged:
|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) 550-1454.
We expect all scholars to follow the same expectations for the Before and After School Program 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 School 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, or 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 School 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.
