  • Late Fee Policy

The Extra Innings program’s policy as to the involvement or the ability there of in extracurricular activities, is as follows:

  • The extracurricular activity must be a school sponsored event and be held at the school/site of the Extra Innings student.
  • The activity dates, times and sponsor name must be communicated to the Site Director by the parent/guardian in WRITING before the activity begins.
  • An adult must walk the student to the Extra Innings location, wherever that may be, and sign them in. If a student returns to Extra Innings without supervision, the parent will be notified right away so that we can correct this for the next time the activity meets. If this continues to happen, the student will not be able to participate in the extracurricular activity. This is for the safety of the student.
  • Once a student is signed out for the day, they are not able to return to the Extra Innings program that day. A child cannot be signed out and back in again in the same day.

This policy is for all 5 sites of Extra Innings and in place for the 2019/2020 school year.
