Parent/Guardian Agreement

  • I give permission for my child/the child in my care to participate in Connections Summit sponsored by the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities on July 26, 27, and 28, 2022. I understand that Connections Summit is a human relations program that deals with mature subject matters possibly including stereotypes, prejudice, communication, racism, sexism, religious bias, etc.
  • The health history provided is correct and complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge, and the person herein described has permission to engage in program activities except as noted.  In the event of an accident or illness that requires emergency medical care, I hereby give permission to the attending medical point person to order such medical attention as may be deemed necessary for the health and safety of my child (or the person of whom I am legal guardian). In the event that I cannot be reached in an emergency, I hereby give permission to the physician selected by the Director to secure and administer treatment, including hospitalization, for the person named above.
  • I understand that although the program sponsor has taken precautions to provide proper organization, supervision, and instruction for each activity, it is impossible for the sponsor to guarantee absolute safety. I also understand that each participant shares the responsibility for safety during all activities and I assume that responsibility for my child/the child in my care. I waive any claim that may arise against the Board of Directors of the sponsor, and/or its employees, agents, volunteers, or lessors including those claims which may arise from the negligence of the sponsor, their Board of Directors; and/or its employees, agents, lessors or volunteers.
  • If the Connections director must send my child home for any reason, I agree to pick up my child within two hours of the director's call (unless other arrangements are made with the director).  I understand that I will be responsible for all costs associated with such transportation.
  • If my child's medical information should change prior to the program, I will notify the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities of any new conditions, medications, limitations, etc. I understand that my child will be asked to abide by mask requirements set forth by Connections co-directors.
  • I understand that student participants are asked to complete an evaluation that assesses their views on human relations issues and the Connections Summit program. I give permission for my child/the child in my care to complete such forms.
Signature is required.
