Medical Treatment
In the event of an injury the Step Up Program of Open School Inc. will make every effort to contact the parent/guardian prior to treatment. In a situation in which effort to make contact with the parent/guardian is unsuccessful, treatment for the injury will be pursued.
Authorization to Provide Treatment
As a parent/legal guardian of my student, I authorize Open School staff to assume care and responsibility of my student while on field trips associated with Open School and during the course of the Open School program. This authorization is applicable throughout my student's involvement with the Step Up program.

I hereby grant authority for my student to receive emergency treatment/care of a legally qualified doctor, dentist, and/or hospital when it is deemed necessary or in my students' best interest.

In the event that emergency medication is needed, i.e. Epi Pen, inhaler, or other prescription medications, Open School staff has permission to transport my student to the nearest licensed medical professional to administer medication as directed, unless I provide specific permission (see below)*

I hereby release Open School from any responsibility for any expenses which may be incurred in providing emergency, dental, or medical treatment.
Do you agree to the above "Authorization to Provide Treatment"? *

Field Trip Permission Form
Please read through this entire section, if there is anything about this section or the described activities that you do not understand please let us know. Read carefully and make sure you understand each detail before signing.
It is the practice of Open School programs to keep students and parents/guardians safe during educational experiences. In travelling off school property, additional opportunities are offered only if parents/guardians agree their student may participate despite potential increased risk.
- The dangers which are present in these trips are those commonly experienced by and known to all persons traveling with young people within the United States. Open School cannot and does not claim to control such dangers. Parents and participants wishing more information regarding the trip and its leadership should contact the Program Director.

- Parents are responsible for determining whether their student has the ability to participate based on behavior and maturity level, given all information provided. Students must have the ability to accept direction and participate responsibly and safely.

- Field trips are a part of the program and may occur with little or no advance notice. In some cases, transportation for field trips may be provided by a staff member trained and certified to provide transportation in an Open School vehicle or common carrier.

- Off-site activities such as overnight camps, challenge, or ropes courses, include known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to participants. Such risks cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. The risks include, among other things: the hazards of traversing uneven terrain and slips and falls; the use of climbing ropes and equipment; the risks of exposure to insect bites; a student’s physical condition, and the physical exertion associated with this activity.
Field Trip Permission Statement
I hereby release and agree to defend and hold harmless Open School Inc, its officers, agents, and employees, including the Program Director and their assigns, from any claims by any person, entity or estate, in any forum that may arise against them by reason of property loss or injury and/or death resulting from any cause including, but not limited to, the student or other students having failed to properly carry out instructions from Open School employees.

I give permission for my student to participate in field trips organized by the Step Up Program of Open School Inc. for the duration of time that they are enrolled in Step Up.

I acknowledge I have the authority to agree to and grant this release.
Do you agree to the above "Field Trip Permission Statement"? *
