ATTENDANCE POLICY

During the Lake Houston Church After-School Program enrollment process, the parent or guardian must identify the days their child will attend the program.  This important information assists the after school staff to ensure that students are attending the after school program when they are supposed to. Lake Houston Church and Humble ISD School administration are working together to create a safe transition from school to the after school program, therefore, attendance by students and communication with parents is very important.  Lake Houston Church and Humble ISD cannot be held responsible for students and families who neglect to follow the attendance procedures in place.  As a result of our need to ensure the safety of students, the following policies must be followed:


1. Students enrolled in the after school program are expected to attend on all days identified by the parent/guardian during the initial enrollment process.  Changes to that schedule must be submitted to Lake Houston Church one week prior to going into effect, so that the program administration can be notified in a timely manner.


2. If your child is not going to be attending on a regularly scheduled day, we ask that the after-school administration be notified by 1:00 pm (281-852-6273) that day or in writing, prior to the absence.


3. Failure to attend three regularly scheduled days without notification to either Lake Houston Church administration or staff will result in your child being placed on suspension from after school services, until a program supervisor and the parent/guardian address the issue of non-attendance. Notification of suspension will be conducted by phone and written correspondence.  


4. Inconsistent or lack of attendance at the after school program will result in the student’s name being removed from the attendance roster. 


Notification for attendance roster removal will occur by written correspondence.


Arrangements to have your child re-activated can be made by contacting Lake Houston Church office at (281-852- 6273).


INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

*If your school is delayed, the after school program will be in session.

*If your school is cancelled, the after school program will be cancelled. 

*In the event that the after-school program is in session, and the weather becomes dangerous, the parents are encouraged to arrive early to pick up their children from the program.  Please be sure to call ahead and make arrangements for someone to meet you at the door.


CHILD PICKUP POLICY
