Acceptable Reasons for Early Release:
- Family Emergencies (such as a death in the family, catastrophic incidents, etc.).
- Medical appointments.
- Weather, neighborhood safety conditions and daylight savings (early darkness), especially if the child walks home.
- Coordination with public transportation schedules, if a child has the authorization to take public transportation home.
- Child accidents that occur during program time (program staff will call parent or guardian).
- Attending a parallel program on campus (tutoring, clubs, etc.) as long as an agreement or partnership with the program exists, thus making the parallel program the child’s enrichment component. Students must check-in and sign out with ASES.
- Other conditions based on a case-by-case basis determined by the after school program and school.
