      Safety and Program Guidelines

      Before Classes Begin
          •   For safety reasons a completed emergency form must accompany the registration.
              Shawnee State University reserves the right to delay the student’s registration until
              an emergency form is provided.
          •   Register your children for the grade level they are currently in. This is the grade they
              must have completed by June 18, 2007.
          •   Students are encouraged to bring their own water (no milk products please, they will
          •   Children should wear comfortable play clothes that can get messy and are easily cleaned.
          •   Remind your child not to bring games, toys, trading cards, electronic devices, or similar
              materials to classes unless the instructor has requested you to do so. Shawnee State
              University is not responsible for lost, broken, or missing items.
          •   Inform your child of which classes he/she is taking, their lunch arrangements, and who
              will provide their transportation.
          •   Talk with your child about safety issues in all public places such as Fun in the Sun.
          •   If this is your child’s first experience at Fun in the Sun, we suggest you visit Earl
              Thomas Conley Park to become familiar with the location.

      During Class Sessions
      •   Appropriate behavior is expected. Students will be removed from the program for
      •   Fun in the Sun staff and faculty members will not dispense medications as we are not
          properly trained or staffed to do so.
      •   Dropping off your child – On the first day of class, you will need to come to the registration
          desk at the main shelter to make sure you have completed all the proper paperwork. Each
          day, please arrive 5-10 minutes before class start time so that your child will have the
          opportunity to attend the class in full. Drop your child off into the care of a Shawnee State
          University representative. Only students registered for Fun in the Sun may be on the
          premises without a parent or guardian in attendance.
      •   Picking up your child – The instructors will bring their students to the location in which you
          dropped them off. You must pick your child up within 15 minutes of the end of class. An
          “over-time” fee will be charged to parents more than 15 minutes late.

      Registration Information
      •   Courses are designed specifically for students who will have completed the grade listed in the
          course description by June 2007. Please register your child with the appropriate age group as
          listed in each description.
      •   Registrations must be received before June 8. If received after, a $10 late fee per course
          will be charged and no special discounts will be given.
      •   Refunds are made only for classes cancelled by SSU.

    Our instructors request that parents follow the grade-appropriate guidelines listed next to
    each class. We reserve the right to reassign your child to a grade-appropriate class. Your
    cooperation is appreciated.

    damage and/or loss of my child’s property that may arise out of my child’s participation in Fun in the Sun, hereby intending to release and discharge
    Shawnee State University, its board of Trustees, officers, employees and agents associated or connected with the program from every claim, liability or

    Although a minor, my child is aware of the risks involved in participating in the program. I assure Shawnee State University that I have carefully

    child from participating in the program. I authorize Shawnee State University to obtain such medical care, emergency or otherwise, that it may in its
    sole discretion deem necessary for my child. Further, I assure Shawnee State University that I have adequate health insurance or personal funds to

    associated with such care.
