First offense disciplinary action

A letter will be sent to the parents of any child who throws a rock or a foreign object while attending the SACC program. The letter will ask the parents to talk with their child regarding the SACC rock/object throwing policy and inform them that they could be subject to suspension or disenrollment from the SACC program if the child continues to throw rocks/objects.

Second Offense Disciplinary Action

A last warning letter will be sent to the parents of any child who throws a rock/object for the second time.

Third Offense Disciplinary Action

Any subsequent incident of rock/object throwing will result in disenrollment from the SACC program.

We regret the need for this action to be taken, but the safety of the other children and the employees must be considered.
