Personal Belongings
Members are not allowed to bring toys, radios, hand-held video games, cameras or any other personal belongings to the Club. These items attract attention and may be lost or stolen. The Boys & Girls Club is not responsible for any personal belongings that are lost/stolen/broken at the Club. Please encourage your child to follow this request.

Illness & Emergency Procedures
It is important that everyone cooperate fully with illness and emergency procedures; they are intended to protect the well being of all members. Any change in EMERGENCY INFORMATION data MUST be communicated to the Club at once. This is the ONLY way this information can be updated in your child’s file. If a member becomes ill, staff will contact the parent/guardian. It is expected that the member be picked up within 60 minutes after the call. In case of accident, the parent/guardian will be contacted right away to determine the status of medical attention required and the best manner to provide adequate and proper emergency aid. Emergency situations will be taken to the hospital immediately.

Proper hygiene is required for all Club members. Children should be clean, have clean clothes, and proper hair treatment. In the case of lice, all nits must be removed and the child must have a doctor or school nurse’s written permission to return the Club. Pink eye, coughing, and other medical problems must be treated before a child attends the Club. If the child misses school because of a medical problem, do not send them to the Club. Parents must pick children up immediately if a hygiene problem exists. All children must be toilet trained to attend the Club (policy available upon request).

Prescription and non-prescription medicine will not be administered by any Club staff except in the case of an emergency.
