Late Pick Up Policy

OUR School Preschool

DROP OFF AND PICK UP

Parents must sign their child in and out each day, and are encouraged to bring toddler and preschool children to school no later than 9:00 am.  A child who arrives when other children are cleaning up for snack can feel frustrated and usually has a more difficult day.

Parents are required to pick up children by 5:00 p.m.  A child who is picked up late can get anxious, and teachers who have worked a full day need to be able to count on leaving their job promptly.  Being on-time is a significant contributor to the job satisfaction of all of our teachers and the happiness of our children.  We pride ourselves on being a school whose parents are on-time and strive to have no violations of this rule.   
 
OUR School closes at 5:00 p.m., parents arriving after 5:00 p.m. will be penalized as follows:

1st violation within 1 calendar month: Parents will be charged a per-child late fee of $10 for arrival between 5:01 and 5:05 p.m., and an additional $25 for arrival between 5:06 p.m. and 5:15 p.m.

2nd violation within 1 calendar month:
Parents will be charged a per-child late fee of $20 for arrival between 5:01 and 5:05 p.m., and an additional $50 for arrival between 5:06 p.m. and 5:15 p.m.

3rd violation within 1 calendar month: Parents will be charged a per-child late fee of $40 for arrival between 5:01 and 5:05 p.m., and an additional $100 for arrival between 5:06 p.m. and 5:15 p.m.

4th and all subsequent violations within 1 calendar month:
1-day suspension of child(ren) of parents at the beginning of the next calendar month; additionally, parents will be charged a per-child late fee of $40 for arrival between 5:01 and 5:05 p.m., and an additional $100 for arrival between 5:06 p.m. and 5:15 p.m.

If there are 4 or more violations within 1 calendar month, a meeting will be set up with the parents, the Director, and the Board of Directors to discuss the continuation of childcare at OUR School.
 
Please note that all late fees will be added to the parent's tuition bill.
 
If a parent has not arrived to pick up their child and cannot be reached by phone within 15 minutes of closing time, we will call the emergency contact(s) listed on their enrollment forms. The Department of Social Services and/or the Glenwood Police Department will be contacted if parents cannot be contacted or do not arrive within 30 minutes of closing time.
