VisArts will not dismiss your child to anyone other than those adults designated on the Transportation Release Form ~ no exceptions! You must notify VisArts of all carpool arrangements or changed dismissal plans in writing)
Who: As you arrive on Gibbs Street, VisArts staff will dismiss your child to you at the front door.
Please notify VisArts if your child will not attend camp due to illness, emergency, or other contingencies. You may leave a detailed phone message by calling the VisArts office at 301-315-8200 ext 104.
We understand that there are circumstances beyond your control that might delay pick up, but to be fair to our staff, the following late pick up policy will be enforced: 15 minute grace period. From 3:00 pm – 3:15 pm, no penalty will be assessed. After the 15-minute grace period your child will be in the extended camp room and a $5 fee will be charged for every 5 minutes thereafter. Payment must be made at time of pick up.
