Youth Enrichment Handbook for Parents 2016 - 2017

Any parent or guardian who demonstrates they have any custodial rights to the child may sign the child in or out of the program and may sign the child up for field trips or obtain a weekly calendar or newsletter, even if this person did not register the child and even if the information sheet does not list this person as an authorized pickup. Any court orders from one custodial party to specifically remove the custodial rights of the other party must submitted to the City of Henderson prior to the child’s participation in the program. Be sure to allow at least four full City of Henderson business days (Monday-Thursday) to review this paperwork. It is our experience that many divorce decrees discuss terms of visitation but often do not specifically remove the custodial rights of the other party. The city does not enforce or mediate terms of visitation. Our number one concern is the safety of your child. Please fill out one participant information form per child and provide the name; address; and home, work and emergency telephone numbers of the other person with custodial rights. You are also responsible for providing a copy of this program handbook to the other person and providing a signed acknowledgment of receipt to the department. Mandated Reporting Any suspected abuse or neglect issues noticed by staff will be reported to the proper authorities per NRS 432B220. Parents, guardians or other authorized individuals who attempt to pick up their child while intoxicated or under the influence of another substance will immediately be reported to the police. Medication Release Information If a child has any illness or condition that necessitates taking medication during program hours, it is preferable that the child not participate in the program until he/she completely recovers from the illness or condition. At the risk of infecting others, health services recommend that if any one of the following symptoms are present, the child should stay home: 17 • Elevated temperature • Diarrhea • Persistent headache • Inflamed sore throat • Nausea/vomiting • Unexplained rash • Wheezing • Earache If the illness or condition is contagious or communicable, the child may not be permitted to participate in the program until he/she completely recovers from the illness or condition. A doctor’s release will be required prior to the child re-entering the program.
