Masking Policy: Our masking policy for VBS is the same as our church's mask policy for Sunday Kids' Ministry. At this time, masks are required while indoors for all participants (adults and children). This is an attempt to reflect our care for children under 5, who are not currently able to be vaccinated. If the church updates its masking policy to make masks optional for Kids' Ministry, masks would then be optional for VBS. However, we cannot guarantee any changes. As of now, given our current policies, masks would be required during indoor activities and optional for outdoor activities. Weather permitting snack and recreation will be held outside.
Permission to Photograph: Pictures and videos will be taken during the week of Vacation Bible School. Some of these pictures may be used on our social media platforms, website, and in our print/online publications. These photos will be used responsibly and will not be linked with any identifying information about your child. If you DO NOT grant permission for us to use photos of your child, you must submit a written notice to the Children’s Director.
Emergency Medical Authorization: By registering my child(ren), I agree that in the event of an emergency, I hereby give permission to the church appointed sponsors who are with my child to obtain medical assistance for my child. I also give permission to the physician selected to hospitalize and secure proper treatment for my child.
Liability Release: By registering my child(ren), I, the parent/guardian, acknowledge and accept the risks of physical injury sometimes associated with participation in these activities at Haymarket Church. Except in the case of gross negligence on the part of the sponsors, we accept personal financial responsibility for any injury sustained during this activity. Further, we promise to hold harmless Haymarket Church for any injury related to these activities. If a dispute over this agreement or any claim for damages arises, we agree to resolve the matter through a mutually acceptable arbitration process. We also fully consent to our children’s participation in this event.
