Summer Zone children are expected to follow the elementary school
building rules for conduct and behavior. Program staff will work with
children to make positive choices, to promote respect for others, and to
encourage self-discipline by setting expectations and activity guidelines,
focusing on choices, and promoting a child’s self-esteem. Our goal is to
help students resolve conflicts and use self-regulation strategies so that
students can have a positive experience at Summer Zone.
Children are expected to:
1. Listen and comply with staff directions
2. Follow all building and playground rules
3. Demonstrate respect for themselves and others
4. Keep hands, feet, and unkind comments to themselves
Staff will work with the child and family to resolve problems. Strategies
include the use of verbal reminders, 1:1 conference with the student, and if
necessary, a regroup time where the student will be asked to sit out of the
activity. All efforts will be made to give the student the opportunity to
rejoin the activity.
Site staff will communicate with parents verbally and with a Behavior Note
when issues arise during the Summer Zone session. Conferences with Kid Zone
Administration may result in suspension of service in times of increased or
severe issues. Parents may also be requested to pick up a child for the
day who is disruptive to the flow of the program, or if the behavior results
in an unsafe environment.
No credits will be issued for absences due to behavior suspension or
If efforts to resolve the situation, or behaviors, are not productive,
dismissal from the program may be a consequence.
