Participant Drop-off & Pick-up Policy:

All activities are closely supervised, and staff is scheduled according to the individual needs of the program. Participants should not be dropped off early and must be picked up promptly. District policy prohibits staff from transporting participants home. Any participant not picked up within 30 minutes of the conclusion of an activity may be released into the custody of the Simi Valley Police Department. The reoccurrence of late pick up may be grounds for exclusion from future participation.
