White reservation envelopes are in each elementary school office along with our drop box. Please make sure your child's teacher knows they are coming to our program any time you need us. We do not need to have a reservation for your child. We will always have room for your child. Just make sure their teacher always knows when they are to come to our program!
We will administer life sustaining medications only. We recommend that if other medication is needed it be received before 2:50 PM or after 6 PM. If your child is on any life sustaining medications, we are required by our license to have them stored with us and have a perscription that is current for them with the medications, in order for us to administer.
Make sure your child has warm clothes as needed for outdoor play. Please send water bottles also, so that we may keep your children hydrated during the afternoons. Please label all of your child’s belongings. We will make every effort to ensure your items are not lost. We will not be liable for lost items. Please dress children each day for appropriate outdoor weather activities in the afternoon.
Poor Behavior/ Discipline
Learning Camp After School believes in RESPECT for each other. We will only speak to your child with respect when we need to provide discipline. Should there be a problem, your child will be given two verbal warnings to correct a behavior. We will work hard with you and your child to ensure their success, but respect and kindness is imperative. Should we be experiencing any behavior problems, you will be advised. If the problem continues to be ongoing, your child will no longer be able to attend the Learning Camp After School Program.
Please know that we are working with your children by choice and in good faith. We simply can not continue to work with parents that continually run late in picking up their children or who are regularly rude to our staff. Should either of these situations occur, your child will no longer be welcome to attend our program. I hope that you will understand and respect our position on this issue.
When a child becomes ill or is injured during the after school program, the parent/guardian will be contacted. If the parent can not be reached our staff will adhere to the emergency contact information on your child’s registration form. Please notify us immediately if changes occur in addresses, phone numbers or emergency contacts for your child. Should we not be able to reach anyone listed, we will take emergency actions necessary for the safety of your child.
According to our license, we will be conducting emergency drills each month. Those drills will include; fire drills, lock down drills, and lock out drills. Lock out drills will take us walking distance from school. Each of these drills will happen 3 times during the year. Fire drills will now happen monthly. See Director for Information.
In the event that we have to relocate your children due to an actual threat we will notify all parents by cell phone. Your children will be able to be picked up at the following locations:
RHES and GES Gypsum Creek Middle School
EVES Eagle Fire Station
BCES Castle Peak Senior Center
Late Pick Up
The after school program operates from 2:50 PM – 6:00 PM Monday through Friday. We close at 6PM. If you will be later than 6PM please call and notify us. Should you run late regularly we will need to charge you $1 per minute for every minute you are late. We hate to have to do that, so make arrangements for someone to pick your child up should you be running late regularly..
We ask that payments be made as you go. We are no longer able to carry big balances for families. Please put a credt/debit card on file with our office. You may include that information in our payment envelopes at pick up, or contact Tom directly at Tom@learningcamp.com or 970-471-2370. We will charge it bymonthy and provide you a statement. Again we are unable to carry children for months on end without payment. Please contact Tom directly with any questions.
