Afterschool attendance Policy 


For the 2023 - 2024 school year, parents and incoming clients enrolling in the Juliet After School Care program are required to commit to a consistent attendance schedule. To ensure the smooth and safe dismissal of students from school, our office will no longer permit families to make weekly changes to their after-school attendance schedule.


Once a schedule has been established and agreed upon, it will be expected to remain consistent throughout the school year. Consistency in attendance is crucial for the effective operation of our after-school program and the safety of all participating students. Having a consistent schedule allows our staff to adequately prepare for each day's activities, ensure proper supervision, and maintain a secure and organized dismissal process.

Failure to adhere to the attendance commitment policy may result in the forfeiture of the child's spot in the Juliet After School Care program for the remainder of the school year.

By enrolling your child in the Juliet After School Care program for the 2023 - 2024 school year, you agree to comply with this attendance commitment policy. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in helping us maintain a safe and organized after school environment for all students.
