Program Policy, Guidelines & Waiver - Fall 2020

Spotlight Procedures


After School: TK and Kinder students will be escorted by staff between their classes and the cafeteria. Teachers will have a list of students enrolled in classes that day. 1st - 5th grade students will responsible to walk to the cafeteria on their own. **Aftercare students should check in with aftercare BEFORE heading to the cafeteria! (Please pack an extra snack on Spotlight days. Students are typically hungry after school and the short break before Spotlight classes begin is the perfect time to enjoy their snacks.)


After Spotlight Classes: All students will return to the cafeteria after their classes to be picked up or escorted to their aftercare. A parent or guardian must sign them out on the sign-out sheet before leaving. TK - 2nd grade students going to aftercare must go to their designated area in the cafeteria and wait to be escorted to their aftercare by staff. 3rd - 5th grade students going to AFTERCARE ONLY may sign themselves out and CHECK WITH MISS MARIA before leaving for their aftercare. **If you allow your older grade students to sign themselves out to walk home alone, please let Ai know. PLEASE BE ON TIME FOR PICKUP. If a parent repeatedly arrives late for pickup, late penalties will apply.


Canceled Classes: Instructors are responsible for sending a substitute to cover their class should the need arise. In the case of a last minute emergency where the class must be canceled, we will send an email as soon as possible to ask parents to pick up students immediately after the regular school day is over. Any students without parents picking them up will wait in the cafeteria with staff. On these occasions, if the student is not at their usual pick up place, please check the cafeteria or ask staff members.


Absences or Change of Schedule: If a student will be attending the regular school day but NOT their scheduled Spotlight class, or if there are any changes to aftercare or regular pick up procedures, parent must notify Spotlight Enrichment beforehand so the location and safety of the student is always accounted for.
