Art Class Parent Pickup Policy

The primary concern of our kids art classes is to ensure the safety and well-being of all students in our care. In order to maintain a safe and secure environment, it is essential that parents or guardians promptly pick up their children at the conclusion of each class. This policy is designed to address the procedure for handling situations when a parent or guardian fails to pick up their child on time.

The art class instructors and staff will maintain supervision of students until the designated pickup time. In the event that a parent or guardian is running late, they should notify ACB as soon as possible by calling 319-754-8069. This allows the staff to be informed of the situation and reassure the child. Our staff will attempt to contact you through your provided phone number. If contact cannot be established with the parent or guardian within a reasonable timeframe, emergency contacts listed during registration will be attempted for notification. If no contact can be made with either the parent or emergency contacts within a reasonable period, local authorities (such as the police) may be notified for assistance.  

ACB values the well-being of every child, and we understand that unexpected situations can arise. We ask for the cooperation and understanding of all parents and guardians in adhering to this policy to ensure the safety and welfare of our students.

By enrolling a child in our classes, parents or guardians acknowledge their understanding and agreement with this Parent Pickup Policy. It is essential to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all children under our care, and adherence to this policy is vital in achieving that goal.
