The following are the policies of the Tokata Youth Center. If you have any questions about the following policies, please do not hesitate to contact us (the "Contact" tab above.)
HOLIDAYS The TYC staff takes off pre-set holidays to give the staff and their families time to celebrate. The next holiday that the TYC will be closed is Thanksgiving (TYC closed November 24th and 25th).
INCLIMENT WEATHER Whenever Crow Creek Tribal Schools cancel or have an early dismissal because of the weather, the Tokata Youth Center will also close for the safety of the children.
OUTER DISTRICTS Every Wednesday, the Tokata Youth Center travels to either Crow Creek district or Big Bend district. The Fort Thompson location (Suicide Prevention Building) does not have programming on Wednesdays because of this. For more information, contact Aaron at firstname.lastname@example.org. SCHOOL PARTICIPATION According to TYC Policy, a student that did not attend school on a particular day cannot participate in TYC Programming that day.
DISCIPLINE The TYC gives it's staff the liberty to send children home as a disciplinary measure. When this does take place, the reasons are communicated to both the child and his or her parent/guardians.
ACCIDENTS Any injury that is brought to the attention of a TYC staff member is documented and communicated with parent/guardians. When sickness is brought to the attention of a TYC staff member, we contact a parent/guardian.
TRANSPORTATION Diamond Willow Ministries and the Tokata Youth Center are not responsible to provide transportation to or from the youth center facility, for the safety of youth on their way to or from the youth center facility.
