What if my child does not need to be picked up from school?
If your child does not need to be transported from school, you must notify the front desk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 p.m. each day. If your child will be routinely absent one day a week for activities such as tutoring, school plays, etc., inform the front desk of the day and duration. This will alleviate the necessity of calling each week. We ask you to do this so we can better ensure the safety of the children riding the bus. FAILURE TO NOTIFY ASB WILL RESULT IN A $10.00 FEE. There are no refunds or credits for absenteeism.

How do I check my child out?
The attendance of each gymnast is tracked by using our KidCheck system. The coach will sign the child in at the facility when the child arrives from school. The child will only be released to the approved guardian with the guardian receipt or a photo ID for pickup. To ensure our children’s safety, ASB keeps a file of names, addresses, and phone numbers of people authorized to pick up each child in case of an emergency. The file is based on information provided on the enrollment forms and KidCheck system.
My child takes medication every day. What is ASB’s policy for this?
For the safety of your child, we cannot dispense medication. Over-the-counter medication will never be dispensed to children.
In case of injuries and emergencies, what policies does ASB follow?
At ASB, we make every effort to assure your child’s safety, though we cannot guarantee that accidents will not occur. In case of a serious accidental injury, you will be contacted immediately. If you cannot be reached, we will call the authorized person you have indicated in the enrollment packet to make medical emergency decisions about your child. A signed emergency medical release is necessary to insure prompt medical attention. If we cannot reach anyone, your child will be transported to the nearest hospital of your choice and recommendations of the attending physician will be followed. ASB will have a designated person stay with your child until you arrive.
What is the safety policy while transporting my child from school to ASB?
All children transported by ASB must adhere to safety rules. Children must remain seated, wear a seatbelt, and follow the staff’s directions at all times. Because of our safety requirements, any violation of this transportation policy may result in restriction of your child riding in the vehicle. Due to the seriousness of our safety concerns, we will notify parents immediately of any discipline problems that occur in our vehicles.
Can parents stay and observe?
Parents are always welcome to observe our daily activities with supervision as long as it does not interfere with our daily programming or distract our participants. We are happy to talk to you about the policies and procedures of ASB. If there are any concerns or questions, please make an appointment with Brynn Crady (email@example.com).
