Frequently Asked Questions:
How is the Extended Day Program Staffed?
Each site has a Site Coordinator. The Site Coordinator oversees the site and reports to the program director. In most cases, for consistency, the Site Coordinator will be available each day in the Before School and After School Programs. The Site Coordinator is authorized to receive payments and write receipts as well as handle any immediate issues that may arise.
What is the Program Structure?
Each child attending the program MUST have a complete and current enrollment form on file. We must also have a signed agreement and payment plan from the parents/guardians stating that you have received the contract and agree to its terms and conditions.
All participants will be required to follow new guidelines in effect due to COVID pandemic requirements. These requirements include:
All participants must wear a face cover at all times and physical distancing guidelines will be in effect whenever possible.
All participants must bring a water bottle labelled with their name as no water fountains will be available.
Participants attending Before School Programs must be escorted into the building by a parent/ guardian and a daily screening sheet will be completed prior to signing into the program each day. This screening will not take the place of and is separate from any screening as required for the regular school day.
Children may only attend the Extended Day Programs on the days during the week that they have been assigned to attend the regular school day for in-person learning. No child will be allowed to attend the Extended Day Programs on a day that they are not assigned to participate during in-person learning.

Is There a Program Discipline Plan?
Participation in the Extended Day Programs is a privilege and is not a given. From time to time, children in the extended day programs exhibit challenging behavior. The Extended Day Program Discipline Plan is set up to help participants resolve recurring behaviors. Each program will follow a similar course of action in regard to discipline.
Step 1: Extended Day staff will give reminders to the child about the rules of the program and will give verbal notification to parents regarding behaviors that are taking place. Should the behavior continue with regularity, a letter is sent home stating the discipline structure and to inform the parent that should the behavior continue to occur, the child may be subject to a temporary removal from the program. The letter serves as a statement that we must work together to help the child to be successful in the programs.
