ABSENCES AND SICKNESS
Similar to any afterschool program, there will be no make-up class for any missed class in the Ya Ya afterschool program.

A signed note from your child’s doctor will be required to clear your child of any suspected contagious illness, prior to returning to any class. If a child tests positive for Covid, please follow the recommended quarantine by New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene at the time of the illness. A child who has had a fever must be fever free without medication for at least 24 hours before returning to classes.
You must inform us via email of any permanent or temporary medical or other conditions, including special dietary and medication needs, which should be known about your child prior to their enrollment in our program, or if arising after the program has begun, immediately upon diagnosis. In the event that a child becomes ill during class, our staff will contact authorized pick-up personnel or emergency contacts to pick up your child immediately.
The school will seek professional medical attention for your child if and when necessary. You agree that, in the event of an emergency injury or illness, our staff may act on your behalf and at your expense in obtaining medical treatment for your child. You must provide a primary and alternate emergency contact for your child who can be reached at the contact information
