San Blas In-Person Homeschool Enrichment Policies
APPLICATION and ENROLLMENT POLICIES
1. Class size is limited. We do everything we can to enroll children within the same family, but space is limited by level.
2. In order to provide the best education, we work to make sure we have the right blend of students for our small school. This means finding small groups of students that can be taught together based on reading level.
3. We are looking to partner with an early childhood educator to accommodate children younger than second grade. Please watch for announcements on the homepage and social media.
1. Classes begin at 9:00 A.M and continue until 2:00 P.M. Parents should be punctual with drop off (8:45-8:55) to avoid disruptions to the morning class. Parents need to pick up students on time as the instructors will have online courses scheduled for the afternoon.
2. Regular, punctual attendance is crucial for the smooth functioning of the program and to ensure your child’s success.
3. Children must attend the full day of classes. Enrollment into one or two subjects is not allowed.
4. We plan our activities for the number of students enrolled. If a student is going to be absent for travel or another planned activity, please email in advance. In case of illness, please email the as soon as possible. (email@example.com)
5. If an absence occurs, you will be emailed any missing course work and a summary of what was missed. There are no make-up days.
6. No refunds for missed classes. Materials and lessons will be provided to the parent if a class is missed.
Children should not attend if they are sick or are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
1. Colored mucus
2. Diarrhea, vomiting or nausea (within last 24 hours)
3. Eye drainage
4. Virus or infection (known to be contagious)
5. Rashes (contagious)
6. Head lice
7. Fever (within last 24 hours – unmedicated)
Please keep in mind that this policy is essential for the health and protection of all of our children and families.
1. Be on time.
2. Be prepared.
3. Be respectful of others and their property. Keep hands and feet to yourself.
4. Complete class requirements and cooperate with teachers at all times. Due to the nature of the “twice a week” classes, it is imperative that students stay current with their assignments. Students are also responsible for class material missed in the event of absence. Late or missing assignments put extra burdens on the teachers, allow the student to fall behind, and are an inefficient use of the time and energy for both the student and teacher.
5. Students are expected to have self control and respond appropriately to the teacher’s directives.
6. Students are expected to encourage and support one another in a gracious and loving environment. No name calling or destructive comments toward one another will be tolerated.
7. No gum is allowed.
8. No cell phones, other electronic games/equipment, or personal items such as trading cards, headsets, etc. should be brought to class unless approved by the teacher.
STUDENT DISCIPLINE POLICY
1. Every student is expected to behave in a proper and respectful fashion at all times. If a child is disrupting a class session, the parent notified and asked to pick up the child.
2. If a parent fails to control the child’s disruptive behavior, the co-op reserves the right to dismiss the child from the program.
Every individual has the right to complete confidentiality. We request that no grievance EVER be handled in front of students. We also request that everyone involved keep the matter confidential. There should be no outside involvement without the knowledge of all parties involved. This includes talking to other parents/teachers. Should this happen, it is grounds for corrective procedures.
