Safety Handbook (cont’d) –Appendices Sample Policy and Regulations Consent and Declaration forms General Safety Guidelines Physical Activity Safety Checklists
Parent Declaration and Consent form ♥ The Department, as part of the Safety Handbook, has developed sample Parent Declaration and Consent form as well as a sample Student Consent form. ♥ These forms must be signed by parent* and student.
Role of Student –Must develop a physical activity plan that meets the criteria set out by their teacher –Identify the inherent risks and how they plan to address these risks. i.e. Wear a helmet when skateboarding. –Share the proposed plan with their teacher and then parent(s). When sharing with parent(s), students will also be able to identify where they can get further safety information. –Once the student’s plan has been accepted/approved by appropriate parties, the student will implement and log the activity time as they participate.
