2018-2019 ASPIRE Early Release Policy
Students are expected to participate in the full day of the ASPIRE program. If you need to pick up your child early due to a one time appointment, or event, you need to record the reason on the sign-in sheet. Parents or guardians may request an early release if their student must leave the program early on a regular basis. The early release policy is not intended for the daily early departure of students. Families may use the early release policy sporadically. The misuse of the early release policy may result in the termination of services.
If you need to pick up your child before 6:00 pm on a regular basis you are required to fill out an Early Release form. The early release request must be submitted in advance and be approved prior to the student leaving the program early. Proof of enrollment and schedule with detailed days and times must be submitted with the early release form. Early release will be approved for a maximum of two days per week for appointments or extra-curricular activities. The program reserves the right to deny early release requests. The students must attend the full day of the ASPIRE program the other remaining days of the week. An ASPIRE staff will open the gate/door for early pick-ups between the hours of 4:30-4:45pm and 5:30-5:35pm, and will also open the gate/door at 5:50pm for normal release time.
