During each pick up, staff will stay late and wait with the children whose parents have not arrived. There is a ten minute grace period for picking up participants at the end of a program. The grace period begins at the time that the program is officially over. The late pick up fee is $5 for every five minutes or part of five minutes after the grace period. Late pick up, if arranged with 24 hours notice, drops to $2 for every five minutes or $24/hour. If a parent is more than 20 minutes late, all efforts will be made to contact the parent including calling the emergency numbers provided on the health form.
