In order to provide parents with a more convenient way to communicate with our before and after school staff, all YMCA Kid Zone sites are equipped with a cell phone. Parents are encouraged to utilize this technology to:

  • Report absences. As a reminder, if your child will not be attending Kid Zone in the afternoon, we ask that you report his/her absence by 2:30 p.m. that day. Absences can be reported through a phone call, voice mail or text to the Kid Zone site phone at your child’s school.
  • Inform Kid Zone staff if you will be picking up your child late due to an unforeseen circumstance, such as car trouble or traffic.
  • Notify staff if someone who is not currently listed on your authorized pick-up list will be picking up your child from Kid Zone. Please note that this person will be required to show identification upon arriving at your child’s Kid Zone site.
