The parent/guardian assumes all risks and hazards incidental to or resulting from the negligence of the program, its employees, owners, volunteers, or sponsors before, after, or during program activities or events. I do hereby release and hold harmless the program and/or the organizers, sponsors, supervisors, volunteers, and anyone connected with the program or activity for any and all liability for personal injuries including death and property losses or damage in connection with any activity or accommodation of the above-mentioned organization. The undersigned has read this release, understands its contents, and executes it voluntarily with full knowledge of its significance.

MEDICAL INFORMATION
I declare that I have provided the program with all information regarding my child(ren)’s health, which may reasonably be needed to meet the medical and/or physical needs of my child(ren). I further agree that I can be reached at the telephone number(s) I have provided during the hours my child(ren) is/are at the program. If an emergency arises, and none of the above numbers can be contacted for any reason, I hereby authorize the program to seek emergency medical treatment administered by, but not restricted to, paramedics, hospital emergency room employees, and/or other medical professionals as reasonably necessary for the emergency medical treatment of my child(ren). I hereby release the program and its staff members from any liability resulting from any medical services provided and agree to pay for such services upon invoice.

DISMISSAL PROCEDURE
Parents can choose if child will walk to HOM with the group or if child will be picked up.

LATE PICK UP
PICK UP TIME IS 8:45 SHARP. If child is NOT picked up by 8:50, child will walk to HOM.

AUTHORIZED PERSONS

-To release your child to anyone besides yourself or your designee, prior arrangements must be made with the program. Proper identification must be shown every time your child is picked up. Phone verification may be used.

-In the case of divorce, it is the custodial parent’s responsibility to provide legal documentation of custody. If there is no court order, then both parents have the right of access to the program records and to pick up the child. The custodial parent must provide written permission for the non-custodial parent to pick up a child on a regular or special occasion. Forms must be submitted yearly with a new registration form. The parent that signs the registration form is the only person who can make changes on the form. Dual custodial rights do not supersede this procedure.

CONTACT INFORMATION
It is your responsibility to complete the registration form correctly and to update the program with changes in phone numbers and addresses of parents/guardians and emergency contacts.
