You are purchasing a membership to the youth club for the summer and are responsible for the full term cost. There is a $30 fee for returned checks. Families who are delinquent in taking care of financial obligations will be suspended from the RWYC. A late fee of $1.00 per minute is charged for members picked up after 5:30 p.m. The late fee is paid at the time of pick-up in cash (no checks) to the staff member who stayed late with the member. This fee must be paid before the member can return to the RWYC. SNACKS & LUNCH Temple ISD provides free breakfast and lunch for all members, June 4, 2018- August 10, 2018. Children can also bring money to purchase items from the snack bar or bring their own snacks and lunch from home. Parents are encouraged to set up a snack account with the front office so members do not have to carry money.

Member Handbook DRESS CODE Clothes that promote or encourage the use of alcohol, tobacco, or drugs by words, pictures, or slogans on them are not allowed. Clothes with large holes or tears or revealing underwear will not be allowed. Shirts and shoes must be worn at all times. Children are encouraged to wear athletic shoes. No flip flops or sandals are allowed on field trips unless they are water related. MEDICATION & ILLNESS A nurse will be available during the summer.

However, in the event that staff members are concerned about a child’s welfare, we must reveal confidential information to agencies or individuals who are empowered to act in the best interests of the child. DISCIPLINE RWYC uses redirection, discussion, and “time-out” for discipline. If this does not correct the problem, other action will be taken to include notes/phone calls to parents and possible suspension from the club. Field trips are a privilege and attendance on a trip may be taken away for misbehavior on a field trip or while attending the Club. RWYC reserves the right to dismiss any member. If a member is suspended and misses classes they are registered for, the classes will not be made up nor the class fee refunded.
