    3. $100.00 non-refundable payment

Deliver completed application with payment by hand or mail to Community Works at 3900 General Taylor, New Orleans, LA 70125.

PROGRAM PARTICIPATION: As there are a very limited number of spaces available, participation requirements will be strictly enforced. Any student absent from the Community Works Program more than five times without a valid excuse will be dropped from the program and their space made available to a waiting student. (Program fee will not be refunded.)

STUDENT PICK-UP/DROP-Off: Late pick-ups (following aftercare – 4pm) will be charged $15.00. If you are repeatedly late, your child may face suspension or expulsion per the Site Director’s discretion. After 4:00pm without parent contact, additional measures will be taken to ensure student safety.  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 student is signed out by a parent/ guardian the CW Program is no longer responsible for that child.  Parents must come into the designated area to sign-out students daily. 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.  Please see beforecare and aftercare information for additional program hours.

DISCIPLINE: Disruptive or disrespectful behavior toward other students or staff will not be permitted and will because of dismissal from the program. Please see Parent-Student pledge for more information.

STUDENT TO INSTRUCTOR RATIO (or SUPPORTING STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS):  NORD Community Works Summer Programs enforce a 10:1 Student to Instructor ratio. If your student has one-on-one attention during the school day, please consider this while registering your child for summer camp with us. Regretfully, funding does not allow CW to hire additional staff to fill this need.

FEES: By registering you agree to pay all program fees associated with the CW Summer Program.

Additional Fees if services needed:

◻  Before and Aftercare needed $100.00

I will sign out my child at the end of each day. If my child is walking home or getting picked up by another adult, I will notify the CW in writing.

Late pick-ups will be charged $15.00. If you are repeatedly late, your child may face suspension or expulsion per the Site Director’s discretion. After 4:00 without parent contact additional measures will be taken to ensure student safety.  

Parent/Student Behavior

The CW staff will treat all parents and campers with respect, kindness and patience. I will treat the CW staff with respect, kindness and patience. I will make sure that my child understands that he/she must treat fellow campers and all staff members with respect, kindness and patience.

It is strictly prohibited for my child to leave the premises without adult supervision.

It is strictly prohibited for my child or I to touch, push, hit, fight, use profanity or lewd language towards others.  Fighting will result in an immediate one-day suspension from camp and potential removal program, per the Site Director’s discretion.

I understand that the following actions will be taken if my child behaves inappropriately, and I will make sure that my child understands these consequences as well.

First behavior incident: The parent will receive a phone call.

Second behavior incident: The child will lose a privilege (e.g. swim day). The parent, child and Site Director will have a meeting to discuss the child’s behavior.

Third behavior incident: The child will be suspended from camp for one day.

Final behavior incident: The child will be permanently dismissed from camp for the summer.

Depending on the severity of an incident the Site Director has full autonomy to suspend or remove a student from the program, immediately.

I will send my child to camp in appropriate attire: athletic shorts or pants, t-shirt and closed-toe athletic shoes with socks.  I understand that my child will be sent home for the day if he/she is not dressed appropriately. Community Works is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

Injury/Emergency

I will not send my child to camp if he/she is ill or injured.  I understand that the Site Director will contact me immediately if my child becomes injured or ill. I trust the Community Works staff to use their best judgment and take appropriate action if my child becomes ill or injured.
