Statement on Student Safety and Parental Responsibility
This document is to be reviewed, approved, and signed by parents/guardians at the time of registration.
No registration is considered valid, and students will not be permitted to attend class unless this document has been signed.
The Alliance Francaise of Pretoria provides a service to the public by allowing children and adolescents to access its facilities at certain schedules times (see our course catalog). Persons under 18 years of age are not permitted on the
premises of the Alliance Francaise of Pretoria unless they are accompanied by a parent or guardian (exception: students aged 12 to 17 with parental written permission).
The Alliance Française of Pretoria provides no supervision of any kind for any person under the age of 18 who is present in its facilities other than the supervision of teachers in the class room during scheduled class time.
Check in / check out:
At the beginning of class, a parent or other adult guardian must accompany each student under the age of 18 into the building and into the classroom, and check in with the teacher in charge.
A parent or other adult guardian must pick up each student under the age of 18 shortly after the end of the class and check out with the teacher in charge.
The Alliance Française of Pretoria and its faculty and staff assume no responsibility for any student under the age of 18 until the student’s parent or other adult guardian has checked in with the teacher in charge at the beginning of each class.
Parents of students who intend their child to arrive at and depart from Alliance Française of Pretoria unaccompanied by a parent or other adult guardian (i.e., by public transportation or walking unaccompanied), and wish to be relieved of
the obligation to accompany their child to and from the classroom must sign the special acknowledgment at the bottom of this form. Exceptions to the requirement that students must be accompanied by a parent or other adult guardian will be permitted for students over the age of 12 only.
Supervision during class:
The teacher in charge of the class is expected to record student attendance and to supervise each student at all times for the duration of the scheduled class. Students will not be allowed to leave the teacher’s supervision for the duration of the scheduled class unless authorized to do so, in writing, by one of the parent.
Students will not be allowed to leave at the end of the class until a parent or adult guardian (with written authorization from one of the student’s parents) check out with the teacher.
