Forms and Documents


All students attending a retreat or event must have an active FAMILY RELEASE FORM on record. The forms cover January-December, meaning only one need be filled out each year. Families with multiple students in the ministry must only fill out the form one time, provided the filled form includes each child's name and medical information.
