General Permission & Consent Section

EYES strives to mitigate risks in all our activities by working closely with the U of R’s Health, Safety & Environment, Risk Management, and Human Resource units and all activities are reviewed by multiple individuals in a three tired safety and security review. EYES instructors are provided First Aid and U of R Safety training as safety is a core component of our programming. However, there are inherent risks that are associated in participating in the program that may result in illness, personal injury or damage.

Privacy Clause

I understand that the University of Regina collects and creates information about EYES campers for purposes of admission, registration, recruitment, safety, promotion, and the administration of the University and its programs and services. Some of this information may be reported as required by federal or provincial authority. By enrolling in EYES at the University of Regina, I consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of my own and my child’s personal information as described above.

Photography/Use of Image Clause

I give the University of Regina, EYES, its sponsors and Actua permission to use my child’s photographs and likeness in any program informational or marketing material in any medium, and/or to televise my child’s participation in program activities for the purpose of promotion, fundraising, marketing, documentation, and public display.

Three Strike Policy

EYES believes in providing a safe and inclusive space for both all children and staff that are involved in the EYES programming, because of this, EYES has a strict no-bullying policy. To ensure this, EYES implements a 3-strike policy.
Strike 1: Child is given a verbal warning regarding the unwelcome behavior.
Strike 2: Child is given a second verbal warning, and the parent or guardian of the child is informed via phone call at the time of the incident.
Strike 3: Parent is called and the child removed from EYES. No refund is issued.

Strikes are issued at the discretion of the staff. All staff are trained formally on classroom management and classroom safety.

Examples of common unwelcome behaviors are (but are not limited too): name-calling, pushing, not listening to instructions, compromising the safety of other children (such as leaning back on chairs or throwing supplies), swearing, or stealing. At the beginning of all EYES sessions, staff review rules and expectations with all children involved in the program. Please review the rules before programming with your child! Rules are posted in all activity rooms.

Please note that strikes are dependent on the severity of the action, determined by the instructor. This means that a youth may not receive a strike 1 before a higher strike is issued.
