IF STUDENT IS A MINOR CHILD, PARENT/GUARDIAN MUST COMPLETE THIS SECTION B DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP OF MINOR CHILD STUDENTS

I understand that I am responsible for timely dropping off and picking up my minor child Student.

MEDICATION AUTHORIZATION FOR MINOR CHILD STUDENTS

I hereby give permission for the following medications to be administered to my minor child Student if necessary due to injury and/or illness, according to my written instructions or otherwise the manufacturer’s recommendations, by ClayWorks or Workshop13 staff and subsequently release Releasees from any and all liability for any damage, injury, or death caused by the administration of the below medication whether due to negligence by Releasees or otherwise. I understand and acknowledge that Workshop13 does not have medical personnel on staff and the medication below will thus be administered by a non-medical ClayWorks or Workshop13 staff member.
