If you regularly meet your child at Summit Walkers, but you are not there one day to do so, your child(ren) will be returned to car riders. If your child(ren) has not been picked up by 3:20, your child will be in the cafeteria with an adult until picked up. There will be a $10 fee per child per late pick up.
