Lisa Wofford, Nolan Site Director:
The purpose of the School Age Child Care Program is to provide adult supervision before and after school hours for students whose parents work outside the home. The School Age Child Care Program is not an educational program and does not provide educational services, including special education and/or related services necessary to implement a child's IEP. The information below highlights a few important items from the Parent and Information Manual. Please make sure you receive a manual when your child is registered to answer any other questions you may have.
All children enrolled in the program must attend Hamilton County Public Schools. Children must have completed Kindergarten prior to enrolling in the summer program. During the school year, children must be enrolled in Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Parents are responsible for keeping all receipts and checks from the child care to total and report payments on income tax forms.
What happens if I am late picking up my child?
The School Age Child Care Program closes promptly at 6:00 p.m. If you arrive later, you will be charged an additional fee of $5.00 for each 15 minutes per child, or a portion thereof, after the 6:00 p.m. sign-out time. (Don't be late!)
Holidays & Snow Days
The program will operate: 1) On the days that the public school is in session. 2) Full day schedules on snow days in zone schools, if not in each center. 3) On conference days and professional development days for parents choosing this service at $12.00 per day.
If it is necessary that a medication be given during school hours or the hours that the child care is in operation, parents much check with the Site Director as school rules and Board policy will dictate the administration of all medication.
Among others....(see handbook upon sign up) Parents have the Responsibility to: 1) Notify the Child Care staff if your child will be attending on special days, (early dismissal, full day sessions, in-service days, holidays, etc.) 2) Sign their child in each morning and sign their child out at the end of the day; to notify a staff member when another authorized person is picking up the child. A full signature is required when signing in/out a child.
During school holidays, in-service days, and during summer child care, interesting field trips will be taken. The cost of the field trip will be in addition to regular child care fees. The cost of field trip transportation, if you sign your child up for a field trip and your child fails to attend. A worker will remain at the school site if there are three or more children whose parents choose for them not to go on a particular field trip. Check with the Child Care site for additional information. We will attempt to publish the daily field trip schedule on the web site when announced.
CHILDREN WILL ATTEND THE ZONE SCHOOL (Currently NOLAN ELEMENTARY or sometimes THRASHER ELEMENTARY on a rotating summer schedule) FOR SOME FULL DAYS AND DURING SUMMER CARE.
Please contact the Nolan SACC staff and they will direct you where and when the child care sessions will be.
