Participant Release

The security key tag identification

process is in place to properly identify

individuals who have parent/guardian

permission to sign out a participant from

any program. To receive a security tag,

all persons listed on the participant form

must provide a valid photo ID. A parent/

guardian will not be issued multiple key

tags to be given to other individuals. An

authorized person must be prepared to

show proper identification, such as a key

tag and photo ID, each time a participant

is released. Before the program begins,

parents/guardians should inform staff of

any changes to the pick-up list by calling

the Recreation Business Office at

919-996-4800.

Any person listed as a parent/guard-

ian on the registration form may add

or remove additional person(s) to the

authorized pick-up list. Parents/guard-

ians should inform anyone picking up

a participant without a key tag that they

will be required to show proper photo

identification.

Payment

If the required payment is not provided

with the registration forms, the partici-

pant’s registration will not be processed.

We will attempt to notify you by tele-

phone or email, and you will have until

the end of following business day to

remit payment.

participant’s soiled clothing.

If a toileting accident does occur, a

change of clothes must be brought to

accidents are frequent, participants may

be dismissed from the program.
