Reunion 2015 - Sitter Services Application


If you are planning to bring children to your reunion this September and will require the services of a sitter, please read this carefully and return the application form as soon as possible. 

This Reunion Sitter Service will ONLY cover families attending Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth Reunion Weekend on September 25-27, 2015 and staying in hotels, inns, and motels in the local Upper Valley area. No private condominiums or homes are allowed. 

The Reunion Sitter Service will fill requests on a first-come, first-served basis, and will guarantee a sitter if your request is received by Friday, August 28, 2015. After this date, we will try our best to meet your needs; however, there are no guarantees. 

We will try to assign the same sitter for your entire requested time(s) and day(s). Our sitters provide their own transportation. It is very important that times outlined on the contract are followed. 

Each request will be handled with care, taking into consideration your children’s age(s), needs, and the sitter’s ability and experience. If you have a specific request, (for example, “please prescreen for a sitter who is comfortable with a child with severe allergies, someone able to give a shot if needed.”) please include these requests on the original application. 

We will not set up any group arrangements or sitters for multi-families but rather provide individualized family care. We believe that having one sitter care for children from more than one family can be confusing and unsafe for both the sitter and your child(ren). If more than one family is staying at the same location, please be aware that each family MUST agree to its own sitter contract. Multiple families will not be allowed to combine contracts. 

Sitters must begin an assignment no later than 8:00 p.m. and will be directed to meet you in the lobby of your hotel. Our minimum work time is three hours, and sitters must be finished by 1:00 a.m. If you fail to return by 1:00 a.m., there will be a $50 surcharge for each quarter hour past 1:00 a.m. If you fail to return back by your specific stated ending time, there will also be an additional $25 surcharge for each ½ hour past that ending time. These surcharges are in addition to the stated regular rates. It is very important to adhere to the contracted times for our sitters’ and your children’s safety. 

It is very important to adhere to the original contract. If you find that due to unforeseen circumstances, you will be late or need to cancel, please call us immediately so we can communicate with your sitter. If you do not call or arrive within 45 minutes of the scheduled beginning time, your sitter is allowed to leave. You will still be obligated to pay for the total scheduled time. We will automatically charge your credit card for this amount unless you make alternative arrangements. Cancellations must be made before September 12 in order to avoid a late charge. 

You will receive a confirmation detailing your sitter arrangements via e-mail. Any questions or revisions should be sent via e-mail to Geisel.Alumni.Relations@Dartmouth.edu. Please include a subject line of “Reunion Sitter Services” and include the alumni’s name and hotel where you are staying in the body of the note. If you do not receive our confirmation e-mail by September 8, contact us and check on the status, otherwise you may be disappointed to find no sitter scheduled for you. 

By filling out the application, signing it, and mailing or faxing it, the Reunion Sitter Service agrees to find a reliable sitter for you. We very carefully screen our sitters and pride our group on being responsible caring individuals. If you have a special request, we will try to accommodate those requests received by August 28. 

If an application is received after August 28, 2015, we will try out best to arrange a sitter, however, we cannot guarantee a sitter for late applications. Questions?
