FIELD TRIPS/TRANSPORTATION: First Steps will provide van transportation for field trips.  However, you may arrange to drive your child to the field trip. First Steps may take short walking field trips that are a regular part of the program.

I understand that:

I will be notified in writing before a field trip takes place informing me of the destination and time of the trip.

If I do not wish for my child to participate in a particular field trip, I should keep

him/her home on that day as there will not be adequate supervision for him/her in the classroom.

I understand I must install my child’s car safety seat in the field trip van due to a mandate by the State of Texas to provide transportation.

My child may participate in school sponsored field trips *

PHOTOS: Your child/family may be photographed and/or videoed in his or her classroom or at class parties. We may use these photos for educational and program promotional material. Additionally, we may post these photos to our church’s website: www.firstamarillo.org.

I give permission for my child/family photos and videos to be used in educational and promotional literature and also on FBC Amarillo’s website. *
I give permission for my child’s information to be listed in the class directory. *

WATER FUN: Occasionally, we may have water activities here on campus such as sprinkler play,
splashing/wading pools, slip n slide, inflatables, and water table play. In the event of this you will be notified in writing before the event takes place.

I give my child consent to participate in the following water activities: *

DIRECTORY: Occasionally, our teachers may decide to put together a Class Directory with your child’s name, address, and phone number listed. This directory is used only for classroom needs such as invitations to birthday parties, thank you cards, etc.

Even though the following questions do not pertain to our program, we are required to include them:
Can your child swim without assistance *
Does your child have any physical, health, behavioral, or other condition that would put them at risk while swimming? *

I do understand that I am responsible for providing my child a daily snack. *

By signing below, I agree to all the above selections for the entire school year, unless I notify the program in writing. *
We are committed to keeping each child safe. We have security protocols in place to ensure this happens. One is the use of security codes. If you or anyone listed in your child’s file cannot pick up your child, please call us and tell us who will be coming and then you will need to give that person your security code. Once we verify their I.D. and hear them say the security code, we will release your child to the approved person. Security codes can be sibling’s names or pet’s names, nicknames, favorite sports team, simply anything you can remember in case of an emergency.
