In order for THE POINT CDC After School Program to better serve you or your child, we ask that you carefully review the following guidelines for participation. By signing the consent form below, you are accepting the terms of participation and making a commitment to the overall success of the program. I also agree that failure to comply can result in expulsion!
I understand that THE POINT CDC will be hosting SYEP participants from 9-4PM Monday through Thursday, based on individual schedules.
I agree to maintain consistent attendance record during the program year. Chronic unexcused absences will result in immediate program expulsion. I agree to inform the program of any other activities that would interfere with my child attending no less then three days per week consistently. Consistent attendance is critical to keeping our doors open.
I agree to attend community outreach meetings at THE POINT CDC during the course of the summer. By signing this I am also agreeing to make myself available for individual parent conferences as needed. At least one custodial parent must be in attendance for the orientation and you must be responsible for sharing this information with all relevant family members/parties. If it becomes evident that a parent is not aware of their obligations may result in expulsion.
Report Card/School Contract:
I agree to provide copy of the final report card June 2010. Final report cards from previous school year must be handed in order to enroll into our program. Report cards must be handed in before start of summer program. I also give permission to THE POINT CDC staff to contact my child’s teachers/school administrators for educational and behavioral purposes (including parent teacher conferences). I also give permission to THE POINT CDC to get copies of all report cards (including final quarter) directly from the school. I also give THE POINT CDC permission to share relevant information with teachers/school administrators and for the them to do likewise.
In case of medical or dental emergency, I give permission to THE POINT CDC, to obtain necessary and immediate medical treatment for my child, with the understanding that a family member or I will be notified as soon as possible. I also promise to inform THE POINT CDC of any condition or injury that would effect his ability to participate or in anyway harm another program participant. I also promise to provide THE POINT CDC with doctors notes if my child misses program due to illness. Letter will be due upon the date of the child’s return. Failure to share such information is again grounds for expulsion.
I give consent for my child to participate in activities which consists of walks and exploration of the Hunts Point Area. I am aware that my child needs to have the appropriate attire in other to participate in the class.
I agree to inform THE POINT CDC of any physical injury or illness as well as any emotional trauma that might interfere with THE POINT CDC’s ability to maintain a safe space for the children in our care. I understand that failure to do so can result in the expulsion of my child from the program with no refund of admission costs.
I give permission to THE POINT CDC to use photographs video footage, and audio recordings in which my child may appear to publicize and support THE POINT CDC Programs. These images and sounds are property of THE POINT CDC’s and can be used to publicize our programming indefinitely even after my child’s graduation.

THE POINT CDC will not responsible for any incident caused by inability to contact parent due to a changed or out of service number or for not relinquishing a child to person not on the authorized pick list.
In signing this I understand that THE POINT CDC requires all participants to follow three key rules in order to guarantee all participants safety. One, that kids will listen to instructions and feedback from staff and instructors in a timely fashion. Second, participants will not harm using either words or fists. Third, if anyone makes them feel unsafe physically or emotionally that they will promptly tell a staff member and the youth programs coordinator. Failure to comply with these rules can result in a suspension of up to five days. Parents are responsible for going over these expectations with their child. Repeated occurrences can result in expulsion from program with no refund of camp fees.
