ActivKids – Parent/Participant Handbook

Welcome to the Carol Stream Park District ActivKids Program. This Parent/Participant Handbook is intended to provide you with an overview of the policies and standards that have been put in place to ensure the safety and success of all the children who attend our programs. By registering, you and your child agree to abide by all procedures. All information is subject to change. The ActivKids Programs, in cooperation with Community Consolidated School District 93 (CCSD93), provide before and after school care for your elementary school children. There is a mutual consent for cooperative sharing of information between the CSPD and CCSD93 as it relates to the registered participants’ success in these programs.

The education and care of all children is an important undertaking. The goal of ActivKids is to provide a safe and structured environment which encourages personal growth and development, while having fun. ActivKids supports a healthy balance of work and play. Our program also offers flexible registration options and extensive hours in order to accommodate a variety of schedules.

In addition to the ActivKids Before & After Care program, our ActivKids Days Off Club offers fun activities for your child on non-school days.

Please note, operations and health/safety protocol may be updated as local, state, and federal guidelines change.

Special Needs

If your child has any special medical, physical, psychological, and/or emotional needs, or receives any special services from CCSD93, please list them in detail on your registration material. Lack of information may adversely affect the Park District’s ability to accommodate the needs of your child and may necessitate the participant’s removal from the program. The CSPD is not responsible for any injuries, complications, damages, or losses due to withheld information. All participants must be toilet-trained and are responsible for all of their own toileting needs (i.e., fastening own clothing). Please note – inclusion support (i.e. WDSRA services) requires a minimum two week notice prior to participant’s start date.

  • Parents/guardians are also responsible for informing instructors or program supervisor of any changes to primary custody, restraining orders, or any other situations or changes which may affect the participant.

PLEASE NOTE:  Custodial information that has been provided to CCSD93 will not automatically be    forwarded to the CSPD ActivKids Program and the custodial information that has been provided to the CSPD ActivKids Program will not automatically be forwarded to CCSD93.

There is no obligation to provide or communicate any information on the registration and emergency forms [including copies] to any parent or guardian. Parents and guardians shall be responsible to communicate information regarding the child including the registration and emergency forms to all necessary persons. Disputes regarding the registration and emergency forms or similar information must be settled off site and without any involvement of CSPD. If these requirements are not followed, then services to the child may be terminated.

Alternative School Arrangements

If your child (CCSD93 elementary student) attends an Alternative School, the ActivKids Before and After School Program may be available upon approval. A teleconference or meeting is necessary prior to registering for the ActivKids Programs to discuss the participant’s needs, transportation, etc. Please note ActivKids Before and After School hours do not vary and are not adjusted for arrival/departure to or from the Alternative School. Each situation is handled on a case-by-case basis. Program participation is not guaranteed.

Absentee Reporting

For the safety of the children enrolled in our programs, we require the following step any time your child will not be attending the program on a day they are regularly scheduled. Aside from illness, 24 hours’ notice is required. No refunds are given for participant absences or missed days from the program. Notify the ActivKids staff via site cell phone.

School Activities & Clubs

An Activity/Volunteer Permission Form must be completed for children participating in after school activities, clubs, etc. Participants must first check in with the ActivKids staff before going to their designated activity area.

Print the form and provide it to the Site Coordinator at your child’s school or email it to info@csparks.org. Download it here: Activity Volunteer Form.

School Closing – Program Cancellation

  • If CCSD93 announces an unscheduled late start, early dismissal, cancellation of all before/after school activities, or closes for any reason including weather, or emergency due to unforeseen circumstances,     ActivKids Before and After School will also be cancelled or closed. No credits are issued for these days.
  • If you have not received notice from CCSD93 that school has been cancelled by 6:30am, you may assume that all ActivKids Programs will be in session. Should CCSD93 cancel school after 6:45am, or announce an unscheduled early dismissal, you will be required to return to school to pick up your child.
  • If a facility housing an ActivKids Program is closed due to unforeseen circumstances, you will be required to return to the facility immediately to pick up your child.

General COVID-19 Safety Considerations

Below lists precautions the CSPD is taking in the ActivKids program to keep participants and staff safe:

  • Participants and staff are required to wear a face covering at all time while indoors.
  • Participants will be encouraged to sanitize/wash their hands throughout the program time and before/after playground usage.

Children may not attend if they have experienced any of the following close contacts or potential exposure:

  • Within the past 14 days, the child has been in close physical contact (6 feet or closer for at least 15 minutes) with a person who is known to have laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 case.
  • The child is isolating or quarantining (or has been asked to) because they may have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 or are worried that they may be sick with COVID-19.

Health & Medical Emergency Protocol

These standards have been put into place to coincide with the policies followed by CCSD93. In addition, we will attempt to contact you at any time upon your child’s request.

Notification of Medical Attention

The Carol Stream Park District continually strives to create a safe environment for your child. However, at times the occasional accident may occur. Below is our standard and procedure regarding notifying parents/guardians of any such incidents:

  • Minor Injury/Illness:
    • We will only administer basic first aid, a bandage and/or ice pack as necessary.
    • You will be notified when you arrive to pick-up your child.

  • A child must receive appropriate treatment, depending on the condition, before returning to the program and may require a medical release from a school nurse or physician.
  • Please be considerate of other children and staff and keep your child home if they show signs of illness.

Medication Dispensing Procedures

Strict standards have been put in place regarding the dispensing of medication to participants. These standards have been established in cooperation with those standards followed by CCSD93. These steps must be taken if a participant is required to receive medication during the program. This includes restrictions for cough drops, vitamins, pain relievers, inhalers, epi-pens, and over-the-counter or prescription drugs. If your child uses medication that is stored in a school nurse’s office, you may need to provide additional medication since we do not have access to that medication before 8:30am or after 4:00pm.

 Parents/guardians are required to complete a Permission to Dispense Medication Form for any medication to be administered to participants by CSPD staff or by the participant themself. Staff will review this information with the parent/guardian via phone.

Prescription Drugs /Inhalers – Controlled by Instructors

  • Parent/guardian must sign and complete a Permission to Dispense Medication form.
  • Parent/guardian will provide the CSPD staff with the child’s medication in the original container with prescription label that includes patient’s name, physician’s name, pharmacy name, name of medication, and complete dosage information. Only a single dose should be sent in the original container each day.

Inhaler – Controlled by Child for Self-Administration

Essential Eligibility Requirements

  • Participants must understand social-distancing and be able to maintain 3 feet of personal space.

General Information & Rules

  • Only current CSPD staff, CCSD93 staff, current participants, parents/guardians, invited special guests, and individuals listed on the Release Forms are allowed on or around premises during program hours and must leave once the participant is signed in/out of the program.

Code of Conduct

The following policies have been established for the benefit of our programs as a whole. The safety, structure and integrity of the program will take priority over those of any one individual. Behavior guidelines are not   limited to, but are based on the following overall rules and apply to all participants. The Carol Stream Park District reserves the right to take appropriate disciplinary action involving any person in violation of the Code of Conduct.

The term “participant” refers to children as well as their parents/guardians; accordingly, parents/guardians are also required to follow these policies.

Zero Tolerance Standards

  • Bullying, verbally, physically abusive, threatening, obscene, disrespectful behavior, and physical violence will not be tolerated by either parent/guardian or participant.
  • Parents and participants will be held accountable for their actions. All verbal and non-verbal threats and threatening behavior, including but not limited to, pretend motions, writing, or drawings, will be taken seriously and will be reported to the authorities. Participants using threats of death, violence, or suicide will be immediately suspended on their first occurrence. Participants will be required to undergo a professional safety evaluation at their own expense from a licensed professional or doctor. The participant may be eligible to return to the program upon receipt of said evaluation stating that participant is not at risk to himself/herself or others. Evaluation must be provided to the Program Supervisor for their review and approval prior to participation resuming. If a second Zero Tolerance Violation occurs, future participation will be determined by the CSPD on a case by case basis.
  • CSPD reserves the right to ban any individual from program premises (including buildings, parking lots, playgrounds, and surrounding areas) who represents a risk or danger to any parties.
  • Refunds will not be issued for suspensions.

General Code of Conduct

  • Participants should not make any physical contact with other children.
  • Participants may not place themselves or others in dangerous situations through their actions or behavior.
  • Weapons, or items which may be used as weapons, may not be brought to the program.
  • Participants must follow the staff’s directive and show respect to the instructors, other participants, and all property, equipment, and facilities.
  • Participants should refrain from harassment or intimidation through the use of words, foul language, gestures, body language, or menacing behavior. Participants should not make negative comments about staff or participants.
  • Participants are responsible for their actions and belongings.
  • Parents may not instruct their children to disregard rules and directions, or to respond or retaliate physically with violent/threatening behavior or language. The expectation is cooperation.
  • Parents may not direct, approach, discipline, or instruct children other than their own.

Behavior Management

Discipline is carried out in a way that will help children develop self-control and assume responsibility for their own behavior. We encourage children to solve their own conflicts.  When necessary, staff will assist children in understanding each other’s actions. We will make every effort to correct unacceptable behavior through re-direction, reminders of expected behavior, time-outs, and parent conferences. Our approach focuses on positive reinforcement; instructors will act in a manner that is kind and caring, yet firm.

If unacceptable behavior occurs, the following steps will be taken:

  • Time-out given to the child with a Time-Out Worksheet or Verbal Warning.
  • If behavior continues after Time-Outs or Warnings, a Conduct Report will be issued for the participant’s file.
  • A Conduct Report may be issued immediately, without warnings or time-outs for any serious infractions.
  • On the occurrence of a third Conduct Report, issued within a three-month period, a child will be suspended from one or all ActivKids Programs.
  • Contingent on the severity of the infraction, suspension may be effective immediately. On a case by case basis, the CSPD may authorize a delayed start to a suspension following the infraction.
  • If upon return, inappropriate behavior continues, or three additional Conduct Reports are issued in another three-month period, the CSPD may permanently suspend a child from one or all ActivKids Programs. Future participation will be determined by the CSPD on a case by case basis.
  • Refunds will not be issued for suspensions.

 The Carol Stream Park District reserves the right to immediately and/or permanently suspend a participant from one and/or all ActivKids Programs for serious infractions.

Personal Belongings & Electronics

Personal belongings and toys from home are not allowed in the Activkids program. Staff are not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items and reserve the right to restrict or confiscate inappropriate toys. There will be scheduled time for participants to use electronics. Participants may not take or share photos and videos, view inappropriate content, or use certain restricted apps or websites.
