Children enrolled in any Ithaca City School District School, including Immaculate Conception, Montessori, and Alternative Community Schools, will qualify for busing toTrinity's Afterschool Program. Parents and staff need to notify the ICSD Transportation Department in writing to arrange for this. In the event that either your child's school or Trinity Afterschool needs to close or dismiss early, parents need to have a back-up plan in place at school. If the Ithaca City School District is closed for a snow day, we will be closed as well.
The children report to the staff after placing coats and backpacks in the designated area. If a child is not going to attend the Program on their scheduled day for any reason, we must be notified by the parent/guardian. The Program ends at 5:30pm, and children must be signed out by their parent/guardian. Late pickup may result in an extra fee.
The primary concern of the Program is the safety of all children. Children are expected to be respectful of others and to follow directions. If a child is repeatedly disruptive to the program, not following directions, or being disrespectful to other children or staff, that child will be asked to sit out. In the event of unacceptable behavior on the part of a child that poses a health hazard to toher children, or persistently disrupts the operation of the program, Trinity staff will discuss the matter with the parent/guardian. Warnings will be issued for the first two such offenses, with possible out program suspension. In the event of a third behavioral issue, the child will be terminated from the Program.
