Step 4: Influenza Virus & Distracted Adult Brochure
Influenza Virus, The Flu, A guide to parents: During the 2009 legislative session, a new law was passed that requires child care facilities, family day care homes and large family child care homes provide parents with information detailing the causes, symptoms, and transmission of the influenza virus (the flu) every year during August and September. Distracted Adult is a brochure for all child care facilities parents/guardians with information pertaining to the dangers of leaving a child in a vehicle, including tips for prevention, during the months of April and September.

Step 5: Discipline Policy:
The children are our first priority!
The staff of After School Connections use behavior techniques that include positive reinforcement, redirection, conflict resolution and rewards. We expect all employees to treat the children in a respectful manner and for the children in turn to respond in the same way. We also expect the children to show this same respect to each other and to use all equipment and facilities in an appropriate manner.
A child with a consistent behavioral problem who is not responding to his or her counselor or who exhibits extreme or dangerous behavior will be sent to the Site Director, who will notify the child’s parents and/or guardians with a Behavior Report. In extreme cases of behavior such as running away, fighting, extreme disruption, stealing, threats of violence, or destruction of school property, the parent and/or guardian may be called to pick up their child immediately and the child may be immediately suspended or dismissed from the after school program.
If the problem persists, a parent/guardian conference will be scheduled at which the areas of concern and the steps which will be taken to help improve your child’s behavior will be discussed. If the situation does not improve, the child may be suspended.
Discipline Policy and hours of operation:
- Child (ren) shall not be subjected to discipline which is severe, humiliating, or frightening.
- Discipline shall not be associated with food, rest or toileting.
- Spanking or any other form of physical punishment is prohibited.
Hours of Operation: School day dismissal - 6:00 pm including early release days (early release times varies campus to campus)
I have read and fully understand After School Connections Discipline Policy. I acknowledge that I can access the Parent Handbook through the website at www.afterschool-connections.org
Step 6: Student Discipline Policy:
In After School Connections we feel strongly that a positive, supportive and structured environment promotes good behavior. A full day of varied activities is planned to direct your child’s energy into positive channels. We believe that children learn from us and that we are their positive role models.
Our counselors and Site Directors/managers have a goal to help children feel good about themselves by building their self-esteem and self-confidence. Whenever discipline is necessary, corrective discipline is used to change the inappropriate behavior of the child, never to hurt the child.
The following are the steps taken to correct inappropriate behavior in our program and to insure the safety and wellbeing of all our children:
- Counselors will first take your child aside and quietly speak to him/her about their behavioral concern. If the inappropriate behavior warrants, the counselor will either put the child in thinking time (appropriate to their age) or if necessary have the on-site manager speak to the child. The child will receive a verbal warning.
- A child’s second serious behavior incident will result in a phone call to the parents as well as a written behavior report.
- A child’s third behavior incident will result in a phone call to the parent from the Site-Manager and possible suspension or expulsion from the program.
