In order to ensure safety, we require that at least one additional adult remain on site when this program is in session. We will need parents to take turns in this role, which will entail: allowing us to run a CORI check, helping with any emergency situation that may arise, and remaining on site until all children and teens have been picked up. Please plan to sign up for one or two weeks as the designated “chaperone.”
