Summer at Friends Camp of Friends School of Baltimore, Inc. (the School) believes that a positive working relationship between the School and the child and the child’s parents or guardians is essential. Therefore, the School reserves the right to dismiss or not re-enroll the child if the School concludes, in its sole discretion, that the actions of a parent or guardian make such a positive relationship unnecessarily difficult, interfere with the School’s operation, are not supportive of the School’s goals, or adversely affect the reputation of the School. The School reserves the right to dismiss or not re-enroll the child if the School concludes, in its sole discretion, that the needs or demands made by or on behalf of the child or the child’s parents or guardians place undue burden on the resources of the School.
