Out of School Time Learning Program (OST)
DAILY STUDENT PICK UP/PROGRAM END TIME/LATE POLICY It is important that you are prompt when picking up your student. Any student who remains on campus afterschool beyond 5:30pm is considered a late pick up, all late pick-ups will be documented. A referral will be made to Dean of students, and Head of School for follow up with Parent/Guardian. After the third occurrence of a late pick up the parents/ guardians will meet with the OST Director and Head of School. Repeated late pick-ups will result in your child being dropped from the program. Please contact OST staff or Ms. Iris in case of emergencies, delays on picking up your child, or anything else that may arise. Pick up time for OST will be 5:30pm (M-TH) and FRIDAY at 4:00p.
