Absences must be reported to the center by 9:30 am on the day of attendance via phone/email/Learning Genie and each day thereafter.
Absences due to illness of the child or family, quarantine or time spent away from home with a family or other relative that has been court ordered are excused and unlimited. Absences due to family emergencies (i.e.: death in family, illness of sibling, accidents, etc.) are also excused. In addition, a limit of 10 days of excused absences per fiscal year may be taken in the best interest (BI) of the child such as family vacation. Available and Used Best Interest Days (BID) are printed at the bottom of your child’s sign in and out sheet each month.
Upon return the family must sign next to the absence on the sign in/out sheet verifying the documented reason.
If your child is out for more than 5 (five) consecutive school days (even if separated by a weekend) due to illness you will be required to submit a doctor note stating that your child was seen for medical care and are able to return to a group care setting.
If your child is absent for more than 3 (three) days without notifying the Center Director and/or Lead Teacher, your childcare services may be considered abandoned and a NOA will be issued terminating services. Unexcused absences are not permitted and are grounds for termination of services unless full payment is made for the absence.
