INTRODUCTION

 

The Child Care Program is a service provided program of the Lafourche Parish School System. It is a program of before and after school care for children to remain in the safe, secure, and familiar environment of their schools. Time is also set aside each day for the child to complete homework under adult supervision.

 

All profits, after expenses, are shared with the participating school. The sponsoring school’s share of the profits is placed in the materials of instruction budget for that school. This allows the school to purchase materials and equipment for the school.

 

In summary, this program is designed to assist working parents through the convenience of an in-house Child Care Program while at the same time making it possible for our school to purchase much needed material and equipment.

 

The program shall be evaluated throughout the course of the year prior to a decision being made for the continuation of the program.

CONDUCT POLICY AND DISCIPLINE PROCEDURE

 

It shall be the policy of this day care program to promote a safe, secure and orderly environment which will serve to enhance the goals of Child Care. Students will be required to be well behaved at all times. Under no circumstances will violent, disruptive and/or abusive behavior be tolerated. Violent behavior will be defined as anyone hitting another person, using vulgarities, throwing objects in any direction or at another person and destroying property. Students will be expected to act in an orderly safe manner at all times. Students will not be allowed to chew gum or run in the building.

 

Depending on the severity of the problem, there will be three (3) steps taken to alleviate a behavior situation:

 

  1. On the first offense, the staff will call or notify the parent by phone or when he/she

     picks up the child and advise him/her of the situation and send home a written

     disciplinary report for the parent to sign.

 

  1. On the second offense, the staff will again notify the parent by phone or in person

     and advise the parents of the situation. A written disciplinary report for the parent

    will be sent home and a possibility of suspension from the program will be discussed.

 

  1. On the third offense, the staff will call the child’s parents to immediately pick up the

     child from school with the understanding that the child is permanently terminated

     from the Child Care Program. No refunds will be made.

 

Any of the above procedures may be waived, depending upon the seriousness of the offense. The staff has the ultimate authority for disciplinary action.

 

Parents are responsible for any damages done by their child to Child Care or school property. Parents will be notified of the cost of any such damages in writing and will be required to sign a notice of disciplinary action.

 

 

 

EMERGENCY DISMISSAL AND SCHOOL CLOSING

 

During the school year it may become necessary to dismiss the students early or to close the school due to an emergency situation. Our primary concern will be to insure the safety of all students. The full cooperation of all students and parents is required should an early dismissal or school closing occur.

 

  1. Please be sure that your child has accurate and current emergency information on file and that you inform the staff whenever the information needs to be revised.
  2. Please make emergency arrangements now with family so that your child will know what to do.
  3. The news media will be notified of emergency closure. If the Lafourche Parish Schools are closed due to an emergency situation, there will be no before or after school care.
