WELCOME TO OUR
Anti Bullying Policy
The Exchange Youth Program is a place where all children, staff and volunteers will feel accepted, protected, safe and have a sense of belonging. Bullying, fighting, name calling, etc. are NOT tolerated in any way or at any time. Our Students along with our Staff and Parents will work joyfully in collaboration to prevent all forms of bullying through the establishment and maintenance of policies and programs designed to see NO bullying!
**Students are subject to termination at any time for any of the above mentioned**
We ask that all parents keep their children home at the FIRST sign of a communicable disease or sickness! By doing so, you are protecting not only your sick child(ren) but the other children, staff and volunteers from the spreading of that sickness/disease! If there is an instance where your child(ren) becomes ill with a communicable sickness or disease, we ask that you please contact and visit your doctor to determine what would be proper care and follow up! We love our students! A sick child unfortunately cannot participate fully and most effectively in school or in a meaningful way.
**IF YOU ARE EVER IN DOUBT, PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHILD(REN) HOME.**
Once a month, a mock fire drill will be performed so all campers are familiar with procedure and exit strategies. In the event of an emergency, The Exchange Youth Director will blow a whistle signaling to Staff to evacuate their students from the building in the manner practiced in our weekly drill. Staff will bring all students to designated safe areas outside the building while the problem is resolved.
Cell Phone/Technology Policy
Upon arrival, students are permitted to have Cell Phones, Tablets, Ipads, Etc until "Technology Time" that morning concludes. Students are then asked to put their technology in a secured bin that will be held by our director and/or staff. All technology will be labeled to ensure there is no cross over.
At the end of the day, there is a designated time for free play and technology time. They will then be allowed to retrieve their items.
During technology time, Students are not allowed to take photos of other students. Some of our students are not allowed to be photographed and we ask that you help us keep ALL students safe!
The Exchange Youth is excited to announce the availability of some scholarships for students! If you are in need of a scholarship for your child, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and qualifications!
