For Gardens Apartments Only
The Department of Residence Life’s goal is to encourage and facilitate the use of the Community Center at the Gardens Apartments by residents, parents, grandparents and children of all ages. It is not the Community Center’s function or purpose to provide childcare or supervision for children while parents or other accompanying adults are outside the Community Center or busy with other tasks within the Community Center.
Parents or caregivers are responsible to see that proper supervision is provided for all children at all times.
If young children are found without proper adult supervision, staff will make reasonable attempts to contact the parent or caregiver. The parent or caregiver should be prepared to show identification. If the parent or caregiver cannot be located, the University Police will be contacted
Children under the age of 12 cannot be in the Community Center without adult supervision at any time. Children who are disruptive, display inappropriate behavior or require excessive staff attention may be asked to leave the Community Center.
All staff members are required to abide by the Texas reporting laws for abusive and neglectful supervision.
The Texas Family Code defines neglectful supervision as placing a child in or failing to remove a child from a situation that requires judgment or actions beyond the child’s level of maturity, physical condition or mental abilities.
