Inclement Weather

Discipline/Suspension of Care

Inappropriate student behavior or conduct will result in a 'time out' per child's age.  If misbehavior continues to occur on a regular or frequent basis, the student's parents, Mrs. Reeves, and Recreation Superintendent will meet to discuss an appropriate plan to remedy the behavior issue.  If necessary, the student may be suspended or terminated from the program.
