Tutorial Project Conditions of Participation
As the parent/guardian, I acknowledge and agree to adhere to the following Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project Conditions of Participation:
- My child will attend every tutoring session unless he/she is sick.
- I will call the Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project, (410) 516-7673, if my child will be absent. Failure to do so may affect my child’s ability to remain in the program.
- I am responsible for ensuring my child is chaperoned and at the bus stop at the designated time. I understand that the Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project is only responsible for my child while he/she is on the bus and at tutoring.
- Four absences, excused or unexcused, will result in removal from the Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project.
- In the event of snow, our program will follow the schedule of Baltimore City Public Schools. If schools are closed, or close early, there will be no tutoring that day. If schools open late in the morning, we will have tutoring as usual.
- My child will not bring any food or beverage to tutoring. I understand that if my child does bring food, it will be taken away and returned to him/her at the end of tutoring.
- I will contact my child’s student director or the Tutorial office if any of my contact or emergency information changes.
- I understand my child’s privilege to ride the bus will be revoked if he/she is misbehaving on the bus. The bus policy is as follows:
- First Incident – After the first serious misbehavior on the bus, you will receive a phone call from our student director informing you of what happened. We ask that you reinforce appropriate bus behavior with your child.
- Second Incident – After the second serious misbehavior on the bus, your child will not be allowed to ride the bus for the next tutoring session. If you are able to arrange transportation, your child may attend tutoring. Bus transportation will resume for your child after that.
- Third Incident – After the third serious misbehavior, your child will no longer be allowed to ride the bus to or from tutoring. If you are able to arrange permanent transportation, your child may continue to attend tutoring.
In accordance with public health and Johns Hopkins University guidelines, the Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project will adhere to the following COVID protocols for children traveling by bus during the Spring 2022 semester.
- All children enrolling in the program must be fully vaccinated. Tutorial Project is not accepting any exemptions.
- Your child’s 2nd dose must be received on or before February 25, 2022.
- All children will have their temperature checked with a non-contact thermometer by the school coordinator before boarding the bus.
- If your child has a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, a rapid COVID test will be administered by the school coordinator.
- If the test is negative, your child will be allowed to ride the bus and participate in the program. You will be notified about their temperature and asked to monitor your child at home. Another COVID test in 2-3 days will be recommended.
- If the test is positive, your child will not be allowed to ride the bus or participate in the program. Your child will be left with the school coordinator and you will be contacted to pick up your child from their school. A PCR COVID test will be recommended to confirm the rapid test results.
- If you have multiple children participating in the program and one of them tests positive, all of your children will be prohibited from participating in the program until the isolation period is over.
- Your child(ren) cannot return until they complete an isolation period of 5 days, have lessening symptoms, and are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication.
I agree and consent to my child’s temperature being taken and a rapid COVID test administered by the school coordinator, if needed. I understand that should my child test positive for COVID, they will not be allowed on the bus and I will need to pick them up from their school.
I UNDERSTAND THAT FAILURE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS IN ANY WAY WILL RESULT IN MY CHILD'S REMOVAL FROM THE TUTORIAL PROJECT.
