What is the sign-out & late pick-up policy?
NY State law requires all persons over the age of 18 to carry photo id AT ALL TIMES. Parents, for the safety of your children, please have all caregivers follow these important rules. Only an authorized person can sign-out a child. All authorized persons should be written on the registration form. If someone arrives to sign-out a child whom the teacher is not familiar with, that person will be asked to show I.D. in order to verify that they listed as an authorized sign-out person. If they do not have I.D. or an authorized adult comes to sign out the child, the student must remain with the teacher until the parents are contacted and verbal authorization for their child to be released.
Pick-up is in the theater at 3:10 p.m. for 2:10 p.m. classes, 5:30 p.m. for 4:00 p.m. classes and 7:30 p.m. for 5:30 p.m. classes.
First late arrival constitutes a warning, after that a charge of $15 for every 15 minutes late will charged.
