After-School/Pick-Up Reminders from the Family Handbook
Once children have been met for pick-up, the parent or caregiver is responsible for supervision. Please remind your child(ren) that running, jumping, shouting or wrestling in the hall is not appropriate and can be unsafe or disruptive to other children. Please exit the building no later than fifteen minutes after the end of your child’s class, as teachers and staff are often transitioning quickly to meetings and planning time. Please note that common areas such as the Construction Lab, Wonder Room, and Commons are closed at the end of the school day. We appreciate your understanding. Should you need a list of neighborhood spaces for play or relaxation, you can contact the Front Desk.
Students in 7th grade are automatically dismissed on their own. Students in 4th-6th grades may leave on their own if they have a completed Unaccompanied Departure Authorization Agreement on file. This form will be available at Parent/Teacher Meetings in September. Please return it to the Program Coordinator as soon as possible. If you need to make a change to this agreement during the school year, please contact the Program Coordinator. Students who are authorized for an unaccompanied departure must leave the building unless participating in an after school program. Students are not permitted to remain unsupervised in a Blue School common space.Students who are approved to leave unaccompanied are not under Blue School supervision once they leave the building.
If a student has not been picked up ten minutes after the end of their program, they will be taken to the front desk. The Receptionist will attempt to contact the designated pick-up adult. If any 4/5s-7th grade student has not been picked up by3:45, he or she will be taken to Clubhouse and you will be invoiced for a Clubhouse Drop-in. ($40)
Any pick up for a student who is NOT enrolled in Extended Day that occurs later than 4:45, will incur a $25 fee. Any pick up that occurs more than 5 minutes after the end of Extended Day will incur a $25 fee. You will be invoiced.
