I understand that my participation and work completed may count towards my child’s academic content and competency development, and that my support teacher welcomes my communication about the LG activity.

-I authorize the Learning Group coordinator and/or instructor to administer first aid and/or attend to medical situations that may arise, if required.
-To best support students that may benefit from Universal Supports in a group setting, I authorize the Learning Group coordinator/and or instructor to contact my support teacher.
-Please note: It is very important to disclose all pertinent information about areas where your child may experience challenges in a group setting. If information is withheld during the application process and later discovered, it may not be possible for HCOS to offer the necessary supports, and your child may be asked to leave the program.
-Acknowledgement of Risk: HCOS does not require nor endorse students participating in activities with increased levels of risk to fulfill course requirements, nor does the school assume any liability for injury or death while engaged in course activities. Therefore if a student chooses to participate, they acknowledge and understand the nature of the activity and the level of risk involved. Families must ensure that they have appropriate insurance to cover student participation, as HCOS does not provide insurance coverage for students.
