WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I DON’T CALL THE CABOOSE CLUB & LET THEM KNOW THAT MY CHILD WILL NOT BE THERE?

  1. We call the office to see if they were at school.
  2. We check the classroom to see if they have been held late.
  3. We search the grounds & school.
  4. We try and establish contact with parents and/or anyone listed on the emergency contact form.

If no family member can be contacted within 30 minutes of dismissal the police will be called.

This procedure takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and uses 2-3 staff. Please note that this includes when your child is participating in a school activity, such as cross-country, basketball, or soccer.

REMINDER

Please send your child with footwear that is appropriate for running around on the gym floor. This footwear will also be used inside the portables,as we ask that each child takes off their outside shoes upon entry. All extra footwear should be labelled, and can be kept at Caboose Club. It is important for children to have their shoes on in case of emergency.

Please remember to sign your child(ren) in and out every day and let us know if your child is absent.

 

 

 

 

 

Announcement Regarding New Fall 2020 Registrations
 
As you are aware, the demand for before and after school care programs across Greater Victoria - including School District 63 - often exceeds available spots.
 
Although Caboose Club tries its best to ensure all families who require before or after school care are accommodated, we anticipate our programs will be full for September 2020.  
 
Some spaces may become available through the summer, so new families are still encouraged to apply and be put on our waitlist.  We will advise families of open spaces as soon as possible but this may not happen until the school year has started.
 
Families are encouraged to explore other child care options in the event no new spaces become available.
