    Throughout the five-week program, there are various field trips that we will be taking.  Permission slips are to be filled out online.  The money is to be turned into Riley D’Alba, OA Summer Recreation Program Coordinator.  Permission slips are due the week before the field trip and only the online forms will be accepted.  No late payments or registrations accepted.  The Waiver for the Field Trip to Altitude is a hard copy, please sign and return with payment & you MUST complete the online registration for this field trip, as well.  Due to the limited seating on the bus, there are only so many children who can attend the trips, so it will run on a first come, first serve basis.  It is important  to turn in your permission slips and money ASAP.  Every Park Rec Counselor will be attending these field trips, the  Park will be closed that day.

    Any child who is not registered for the program and/or did not complete the online permission slip will not be allowed on the bus.  HAND WRITTEN PERMISSIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

    Park Recreation begins at 9 am every morning and ends at 4 pm every afternoon.  Children can come to the park at any time, however, they must enter through the small parking lot on Drake Street AND they must be signed in by a parent/guardian.  When your child leaves the park, he or she must exit through the same parking lot and be signed out in the same fashion.  Children that walk or ride their bike must follow the same procedure, except they may have a note from a parent/guardian allowing them to do so which will take the place of a parent/guardian signature.  Because your child’s safety is our number one policy, we ask that you adhere to this strict policy.

    Lunch will held daily from 12-1 pm.  This year the food stand will not be open for the summer, but we will be receiving free lunches from the school as an alternate option for lunch.  Children should either be sent to the park with a lunch, or they should ask to receive a lunch at that time.  Children that wish to leave the park for lunch, must again have a signed note to do so, and they must sign out of the park.

    The Park will be open every day that is on the calendar.  In the event of a severe thunderstorm, we will try our best to find an alternate location for the day.   These options may include the Community Center of the Town Building, the Gymnasium at the School, or the Haxton Memorial Library.  When such a decision is made you will be contacted by a Park Rec Counselor.

    Some counselors will be taking the kids to the Haxton Memorial Library on Tuesdays & Thursdays for a movie, and to participate in the Summer Reading Program.  During these visits, your child may check out a book, if they have a library card, but they are responsible for returning the book on-time.
