SUMMER PROGRAM Easton Recreation Department

Due to the border crossing regulations, the Easton Recreation Department is strongly encouraging children to get a passport card. You can apply for the card at Presque Isle or Mars Hill Post Office; the approximate cost is $60. Children may still cross the border (without a passport on a school bus) with a certified birth certificate (one that is stamped by the town clerk and on official paper) and a permission slip. You must get your child’s birth certificate at the Town Office/City Hall in the town where your child was born. Effective June 1, 2009, all adults MUST have a passport or passport card in order to cross the border. All children and adults will have to show proof before boarding the bus for trips that cross the Canadian border. Thank you for your cooperation with this matter! Please remind your children to treat all employees and volunteers with respect at all times.

INFORMATION Summer Registration Dates

June 30 Softball

Thu Wed Tue Sun


July 2013




 

If the above times do not work for your schedule, please schedule an appointment with Hillary before June 1st. Payments must be made for all programs at the time of registration. Some programs have a maximum number of participants. A child will not be considered enrolled in a program until payment is made in full, unless other arrangements have been made. A current release form must be on file for participation in any summer programs. A $5 late fee will be charged per child after June 1st. All programs are based on grade completed during the 2012/2013 school year! No exceptions for safety reasons.

Program Times It is essential parents know the time a program begins & ends so arrangements are made to have the child picked up on schedule. Due to our small staff and the many programs offered, there is often little or no time between activities. Please do your very best to have your child dropped off & picked up on time! Children should not be dropped off early; it leaves the town at risk of liability and your child could be unsafe. Thanks for your cooperation.

Discipline If your child misbehaves or is not listening to our staff or parent

volunteers while participating in any program, the following actions will be taken: 1st Warning - Verbal warning & acting director will be notified. 2nd Warning - Child will be removed from activity for the remainder of the day. 3rd Warning - Parent will be notified & the child may not participate in the next scheduled day of that program. If a child is suspended from a program more than once, they may not participate for the remainder of the season.

June 2013

It has become a tradition to purchase tee-shirts as a summer memento but they also serve as a safety precaution. When in a large group, it is very helpful to have all the children (staff, parents, volunteers, etc.) dressed in the same color to easily keep track of everyone. It is strongly recommended you purchase a tee-shirt (or two) if your child will be attending field trips and outings throughout the summer. These will be available in both youth & adult sizes. This year’s tee-shirt will be aquatic blue with a multi-colored logo (as seen on right). Shirts are in-stock and can be purchased at the Town Office after May 1st. There are also be a few tank tops in adults sizes available. Quantities & sizes are limited; first come, first serve.
