Over the past 6 weeks, multiple parents have been arriving late to pick up their children from rehearsals. The staff and/or parent assistants have had to wait up to an hour and half for a child to be picked up.  On average over the past six weeks we have had to wait 35 minutes after each rehearsal.  Between both orchestras we have over 193 students in the YO program.  When your child is picked up late, it puts an unfair burden on our staff and parent assistants as they are required to remain working, therefore, unable to attend to their own personal commitments and places unnecessary hardships and responsibilities on them.
 
The following policy will be effective immediately for both the CSYO and JYO.
 
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
CSYO/JYO Late Pick-Up Policy
 
JYO and CSYO rehearsals conclude at the times published on our schedule. The JYO has two hour rehearsals (Saturday from 2-4) and the CSYO has two and a half-hour rehearsals (Monday 5:30-8).  Occasionally, both orchestras will have extended rehearsals (all times published well in advance) during the season.
 
Parents are required to pick-up their children by the published rehearsal end time.  Parents must consider weather and traffic when making pick up arrangements. In addition, if a parent sends someone else to pick up their child, that party must know how to get to the church and must arrive on time.  When children are picked up late, it puts an unfair burden on our staff and parent assistants as they are required to remain on premises with children, therefore, unable to attend to their own personal commitments. This places an unnecessary hardship and responsibility on them.
 
If a child is not picked-up by the published end time of a rehearsal:

1)       Regardless of the cause for the late pick-up, a late fee of $30.00 will be assessed starting at 10 minutes after the published end time of rehearsal. An additional $30.00 fee will be assessed for every additional 10 minute increment after that.  Example:  4:10-4:20pm= $30, 4:20-4:30=$60, etc.
 
2)       Parents will be asked to sign a form confirming the date and time of the late pickup and the fee amount that has been assessed.

Late fees are expected to be paid at the time of pick-up. These fees must be paid in cash at the time of arrival, or before the child's next regularly scheduled rehearsal. Fees must be paid before the child can attend the next scheduled rehearsal. Any rehearsals missed may be considered unexcused absences.
 
More than two (2) late pick-ups could result in a suspension or termination of your child's membership in the CSYO/JYO program.

Thanks for your understanding and prompt attention to this matter.
