What are the drop-off and pick-up procedures?

For the safety of all children, you must accompany your child to the Student Union Building (SUB) no more than 15 minutes prior to class check in with the Kids' College Coordinator. Children should not be dropped off without being properly checked in. There will be no type of supervision available if you drop your child off prior to 7:45 a.m. Parents should pick up children within 5 minutes of your child's scheduled class end time, in person, in the SUB. Students must be checked out with the Kids' College Coordinator prior to leaving. There will be no type of supervision available after 4:45 p.m. so please arrive on time. If you have special circumstances please contact the Kids' College office at (208) 792-2860 or (208) 792-2207. Should you arrange for someone else to pick up your child or release your child to walk home, you MUST provide Kids' College with a note. Children WILL NOT be released to anyone but a parent/ guardian unless it is pre-approved by a parent.

Please keep in mind, that staffing is limited to active courses. Please help us ensure the best care is provided to all program attendees by adhering to the pick-up and drop-off procedures.

What are the lunch arrangements?

Kids' College provides a supervised lunch period for children who attend courses immediately before or after lunchtime. Please check your child's schedule to see if their class qualifies. Lunches are not provided, so please send your child with a sack lunch or money to purchase a lunch combo on campus. Please be sure to send your child with the correct amount of money ($5 is usually sufficient) as Kids' College cannot be responsible for any shortages. Supervised games and activities will be available to those who finish their lunch early. Parents are always welcome to join their children for lunch.
