PROGRAM PARTICIPATION FOR AFTERSCHOOL: By enrolling students in the CW Program, Parents hereby understand that during afterschool programming parents must sign out their scholar each day. Students must be picked up daily by 5:30pm.  If a parent is late three times, the student may be dropped from the program. If a parent/guardian can not be reached, or has not contacted CW within 15 minutes following dismissal, additional measures may be taken in order to solidify the safety of the student. CW will make every reasonable effort to only release students to the person (s) designated by the parent/guardian on the registration form.  Once a scholar is signed out by a parent/ guardian the CW Program is no longer responsible for that student.  Parents must come into the designated area to sign-out his/her scholar on the sign out sheet, and then wait for the staff to locate the student. If a student is to be released to anyone other than the person listed, the Site Director must be notified, directly.  I.D. will be required if someone unfamiliar to CW staff arrives to pick up your student.  A Site Director may call the parent to verify any written authorizations to release a student to someone else.

Fees: All fees will be invoiced monthly to the email address provided in your child(ren) registration. Fees will not be refunded.

DISCIPLINE: This program is an extension of Discovery’s school day. Therefore, we will follow the same discipline as the school. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior toward other students or staff will not be permitted and will be cause for dismissal from the program. Please see Parent-Student pledge for more information.

MEDICINE DISTRIBUTION:No medication can be administered or consumed unless both a doctor and a parent/guardian have submitted the appropriate forms and medication to the CW Site Director. We strongly encourage families to dispense both temporary and maintenance medications outside of program hours.There are no nurses during the Community Works Program on duty. Community Works can not guarantee that a trained medicine disbursement individual is on site at all times. Medication needs to be in the original container with the appropriate prescription label (including the name of the student, the name of the medicine, the date, the dosage information, and directions for administering the medication) and the appropriate LA Administration of Medication Form. We store and administer the medicine in a secure location. Please be aware that the medication cannot travel back and forth to program – once it’s given to us for your child’s use, it must remain with us until it needs to be refilled. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to ask for two separate prescriptions when at the doctor’s office with your child. Students are not allowed to have medication (prescription or nonprescription) of any kind in their possession at the program and it should not be placed in their bags. One adult in the presence of a second adult, with the exception of a life-threatening emergency, shall administer medication. A log of medication administration, by individual, will be kept. The log will contain the name of the student, the name of the medication, the dosage to be given, and the time to be given. The person giving the medication will record the date and time of the administration of medication and sign their name. The witness (second adult in attendance) will initial the log. If an error is made in recording, the person who administered should line out, initial the error, and make the correction in the log. If any adverse reaction to medication occurs, the parent/guardian will be notified and if necessary, 911 shall be called. At any time the use of an Epi-pen is administered, it MUST be followed by a call to 911. 

STUDENT TO INSTRUCTOR RATIO (or SUPPORTING STUDENTS WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS): Community Works Programs will enforce  COVID-19 procedures via Student to Instructor ratio.
