New Settlement Community Center Code of Conduct Contract

New Settlement Community Center wishes to promote healthy living by:

  • Showing respect for one another and equal treatment of all people.
  • Adopting courtesy and avoiding improper behavior such as use of profanities, insults, vulgar language, bullying nor play fighting.
  • Showing respect for the community center by not littering, defacing property, graffiti and spitting.
  • Refraining from bringing in glass bottles and gum.
  • Refraining from using alcohol or drugs before coming to or at the center.
  • Dressing appropriately for all activities.

The Center will be a safe space for all to enjoy. Violent behavior will not be tolerated. Failure to comply with the above may result in revocation of membership and access to the community center will be denied. The center reserves the right to revoke membership and access at its discretion. I have read and understand the above policies and code of conduct and will explain it to all members of my family.

Discipline Procedures– If a participant is unable to meet established behavior expectations, NSCC staff will follow these disciplinary procedures below. If at any time you have concerns about your child’s behavior or success in our program, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Program Coordinator to set up a conference.
Staff will first use positive reinforcement and redirection to redirect a participant’s behavior. If this is ineffective, staff may use a temporary suspension/ timeout as an opportunity for the participant to take a break from the behavior before rejoining the activity.
Staff will communicate with the participant directly or with a parent/guardian if/when youth is not following established NSCC rules.
Factors such as type/severity of behavior, behavior history, age of participant, etc. will be considered when determining the length of suspensions.
If the participant continues to have challenges after a suspension, the Program Director may set up a conference to develop a behavior plan for the participant that may include the parent being present in the program sessions.
If suspensions nor a behavior plan are effective in changing the participant’s behavior, the participant may be dismissed from the program. Dismissal from the program for disciplinary reasons could result in permanent removal from all NSCC programs and facilities.

Medication – NSCC does not administer any medication and will do so only when directed in writing by a parent or guardian. Medications must be in original containers with written instructions for dispensing.
Membership Classes Registration & Safety Guidelines

Emergency – In the event of an emergency in which the parent/guardian or listed emergency contacts cannot be reached, NSCC will contact emergency medical personnel and, pending their arrival, take those actions that are in NSCC judgment to be in the best interests of the participant.

Pathogen Exposure – I understand that, while I/ my child is in the care of NSCC, if a participant is exposed to a body fluid on broken skin or mucous membrane (e.g., splashing in mouth or eye) from another participant, the NSCC will contact both parties involved. They will explain what has occurred, and provide the name of the attending physician of the source participant to the exposed participant. If a staff member has a blood or body fluid exposure from a participant, NSCC will provide the name and telephone number of the attending physician to the staff member. I have read and agree with the statement and specifically authorize the NSCC to release the name and telephone number of physician(s) and a description of the event to the participant/ parent or guardian of any participant who is exposed to blood or body fluid or to any staff member who experiences such an exposure from a participant.

New Settlement Community Center Liability Waiver: Myself and my family members are physically fit and have obtained any necessary medical clearance from my physician prior to beginning or continuing any center programing.
