Child Pick Up Policy

Children whose parents fail to pick them up by the specified time will be taken to the office until parents arrive. If a child is not picked up within 10 minutes, the park district will contact the child’s emergency phone number. If the park district cannot reach anyone, the child will be held until closing time or for a maximum time of two hours, whichever comes first. There will be a $5.00 late fee assessed for every 10 minutes you are late picking up your child (ren) after class. All fees must be paid in cash before your child can continue in the class or register for any future classes. If no one on the contact list can be contacted at closing time of the building, or by the maximum time limit of two hours, the police will be contacted and your child will be taken into protective custody until a parent or guardian can be notified. Once under police jurisdiction, the park district is not responsible for any legal ramifications. If you are late and the building is closed, and you are unable to reach park district staff:

Contact the people on your emergency form to verify whether or not any of them have your child.

Call the police if you cannot locate your child. (598-1313)

More than two late pick-ups may result in your child being dropped from the program. No refund will be given.
