- Parents are required to sign their children in and out of the site with their legal name.
- Sign in / out procedures are in place to monitor attendance. In the event of an emergency, the attendance form is the quickest way to account for the children at the site.
- Parents are responsible for delivering and picking up their children from the Before & After School Care program. No transportation is provided to or from our sites.
- Parents are responsible for giving proper notification to the Site Coordinator if their child will be absent from a session.
- Parents are responsible for notifying the Site Coordinator if another authorized individual will be picking their child up from the site.
- Children will only be released to authorized individuals. Always be prepared to provide photo identification.
SPORTS, SCOUTS, AND OTHER SPECIAL ACTIVITIES
Please notify the Site Coordinator of any additional before or after school activity your child is participating in. All children enrolled in before or after school sports, scouts, PTSA enrichment classes or other must check in at the site before attending the class or activity.
In order to promote a safe, stimulating environment for all children and staff, each site will have guidelines that include the Before and After School Care behavior expectations. The BASC policies on discipline are consistent with the Issaquah School District’s policies on discipline.
Should a child display behaviors which jeopardize the safety of themselves and others, the staff will contact the child’s parent or guardian, and request that the child be removed from the program for that day. An additional suspension may follow. Upon return, a family conference may take place to develop a plan for improving behavior. Repeated suspensions could result in termination of care.
The BASC program provides a quality experience for most children. However, it may not be the most appropriate child care experience for every child, or for the same child at different stages of his or her development. When it is determined that a child’s needs cannot be met in BASC due to either undue burden or the child's continued enrollment causing an fundamental alteration to the nature of the BASC program, including but not limited to a determination that a child poses a threat or danger to themselves, others, or property, care will be terminated.
Children who have been suspended from school may not attend BASC during the period of suspension.

ENROLLMENT OF CHILDREN WITH CHALLENGING NEEDS AND CHRONIC HEALTH CONDITIONS
When a contract is submitted to enroll a child with identified special needs, parents will be contacted for a pre-enrollment consultation to determine whether and how the Before and After School Care program can meet the child’s needs with or without necessary accommodation(s). The BASC program will work with the family and other resource persons to make this determination before identifying a start date. The enrollment contract allows parents to identify chronic health conditions including allergies.
The Before and After School Care program follows the illness and COVID mitigation guidelines and policies set forth by the Issaquah School District and the Washington State Department of Health. Children who are ill may not attend BASC. Please communicate all absences to your Site Coordinator, in addition to your home school.

Vomiting – within the past 24 hours
Diarrhea – more than one occurrence in a 24 hour period
Drainage from the eye – the eye crusted and difficult to open (especially upon waking)
Nasal discharge (yellow or greenish) – If your child’s nasal mucus has a color and is accompanied by a fever and/or coughing, sneezing, drowsiness, and general signs of not feeling well, your child may be contagious and should remain at home until the symptoms subside.
