New Policy:

There is a no-tolerance policy for stealing, vandalism, physical violence, or slurs related to race or sexual orientation. If your child exhibits such behavior, they will be suspended for 5 days. If your child is not enrolled in future camps, they will be exited for the remainder of their current session. If your child is enrolled in future sessions and a similar incident happens of any combination of the mentioned violations, they will be exited for the remainder of our summer season. The City defines self-defense as breaking free from a continued assault taking place by physical means.  For example, your child may push someone off of them if they are being hit repeatedly. Self-defense is not retaliation or revenge. If your child is hit once and that child walks away, your child is expected to find an adult to help resolve the conflict. If they seek them out to hit them back, they will receive the same consequence.
