Parents and participants. As we all continue our quest to return to normal in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, we are aware that the virus is still active, spreads easily and can result in serious illness or even death. Accordingly, we all need to be vigilant to protect our health and the health of those with whom we come in contact. In furtherance of our desire to keep participants safe, the PRUMC recreation department is constantly monitoring public health pronouncements of various agencies and is posting participation guidelines and requirements below. We also will have paper copies of the guidelines and requirements available at the receptionist window. We expect you as a parent or participant to adhere to the guidelines and requirements and to assume responsibility to insure your children or others for whom you are the legal guardian adhere to the guidelines and requirements. PRUMC recreation programs are optional. Each family must decide for itself whether its child should participate at this time in optional recreational activities understanding that notwithstanding reasonable precautions you and your child may be exposed to this highly contagious virus while participating in such activities. If you or your children or others for whom you have legal responsibility choose to participate you will be asked to sign a document by which you acknowledge certain risks inherent in sponsored group activities and release any claims against PRUMC, the recreation department and any employee, agent, representative, volunteer or contractor working for or on behalf of PRUMC and the recreations department. You should read and consider carefully that document before signing it
While it is a new world we look forward to the upcoming summer months and our planned activities. Please call or email Charles Akin if you have any questions about participation in our activities, any special needs or medical conditions we should discuss about participation by you or your child or the guidelines and requirements generally.
