Homestay Respite Application
IIf you are planning to be away from home overnight, alternative arrangements will need to be made for your student(s). SISP students can not be left alone at home overnight without proper adult supervision under any circumstances, regardless of their age, level of maturity or trustworthiness. They are minors in our care, and legally require appropriate adult supervision.
- Check if your student has an international friend in SISP they could stay with during your absence. This is often the easiest option and allows your student to stay with a family they know and that has already been vetted by SISP.
- Your Homestay Coordinator can help you with finding a SISP Host Family that could host your student temporarily
- You can arrange a supervising adult, such as a family member outside of your direct household, a trusted family friend, a neighbour, etc. Please note that if the supervising adult is not a SISP host family, they will need to request a Criminal Record Check.
