Sign-in and out Procedures

The supervisor must be able to account for all students at all times. Parents must personally inform the supervisor when dropping off and collecting young children. Your child must check in with the afterschool supervisor immediately after dismissal from class. The supervisor will meet students in front of the school. Please remind your child when they are to go to SFO.

Please inform the SFO Supervisor, or the school office and homeroom teacher if your child will or will not be attending the after school programme whenever possible.

Authorization of pick-up

Under no circumstances will a child be released to any person without prior written or verbal authorization from the parent/guardian. SFO staff will also refer to the medical/emergency release form provided by the parents/guardians at the beginning of the year.

Behaviour: Normal school rules apply during, before and after school care.

Children are expected to follow staff directions. No children are permitted inside the buildings without adult supervision (i.e. computer lab, library, etc). Parents will be notified of inappropriate behaviour.

Clothing

Indoor shoes are required. As the children will be supervised outdoors, they must bring clothes appropriate for a range of weather. Warm clothes and rain gear are a must. If the weather is too severe indoor activities may be organized, at the discretion of the supervisor.

Snacks

Parents must provide a healthy snack for children attending after-school care. Please label it “SFO” and pack it in a separate container from regular school snacks/lunch. Snacks are not provided daily unless you have made special arrangements with the supervisor except on Tuesdays when fruits are provided to all children for afternoon snack time. On special occasions, a snack or treat may be offered, but parents will be informed ahead of time to decide if they want their child to take part.

Medical

SFO staff will refer to the Emergency/Medical/Release form filled out by parents/guardians that should list any allergies/medical issues your child has.

SFO Departure Permission

SFO staff will refer to the Arrival/Departure form filled out by parents/guardians to allow students to leave SFO on their own.
