RELEASE OF STUDENTS:  You must provide HASP with information as to how your student will be released from the program each day. Parents must come in the building and sign out the child. Individuals authorized to sign out students must be listed on the enrollment form. It is best to list names of several different individuals in case you are delayed. If the person signing out the child is not known personally by the Site Coordinator or Director, photo identification will be required. Elementary students are not allowed to either walk or ride bicycles to or from the Elementary School. Therefore, an authorized adult must sign them out daily. Children must be picked up by 6:00 pm. NOTE: A late charge of $1.00 per minute per child will be assessed beginning at 6:01 pm. Continued late pick-up may result in termination of the child in the HASP program.

 (Early Release) If you encounter an emergency situation that will prevent you from picking up your child on time, you must make arrangements for someone else to pick up your child and notify the Site Coordinator or Director.

NOTICE: The HASP Program must be notified if there is a court order prohibiting certain persons from having contact with your child.

EMERGENCY PROCEDURESShould an emergency situation arise (such as ice or snow, loss of water, etc.) immediately before or during HASP time, the staff will notify parents of the existing situation. In such circumstances, parents will be required to make arrangements for immediate pick-up of their student.

MEDICAL AND EMERGENCY INFORMATIONWe have asked you to provide this information in order to better serve and protect your child. We ask you to keep your child home if they show any signs of a contagious disease in the past 24 hours, if a child becomes ill while at the program the parent will be notified to pick up the child within one (1) hour.  It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to notify the HASP personnel if there are any changes in the parent contact and/or emergency information.

ILLNESS/ACCIDENTS:  Should your student become ill or injured during the program, he/she will be brought to the office where we will try to determine the nature and severity of the illness. If the student cannot, in our judgment, remain at the program, we will contact the parents or the emergency phone number. It will be necessary for you to make arrangements to pick-up your student immediately.  

BEHAVIOR/DISCIPLINE POLICYStudents are under the supervision of qualified personnel who are familiar with the rules set by the Henryetta Public Schools.
