Our number-one concern is the safety of your participant. Please provide the name, address, and home, work and emergency telephone numbers of the other person with custodial rights. You are also responsible for providing a copy of this program handbook to the other person and providing a signed acknowledgement of receipt to us. Any parent or guardian who demonstrates they have any custodial rights to the participant may sign the participant in or out of the program and may sign the participant up for field trips or obtain a monthly calendar, even if this person did not register the participant and even if the information sheet does not list this person as an authorized pickup. Any court orders from one custodial party to specifically remove the custodial rights of the other party must be submitted to the City of Henderson prior to the participant attending the program. Be sure to allow at least five full business days (Monday- Friday) to review this paperwork. It is our experience that many divorce decrees discuss terms of visitation but often do not specifically remove the custodial rights of the other party. The city does not enforce or mediate terms of visitation. Guardianship Many registration forms and waivers must be signed at the initial intake as well as each month when registering. If the participant is their own legal guardian, they must be the one to sign all of the forms. If the participant is under 18, their parent must sign the forms. If they are 18 or older they must sign the forms unless someone else is their legal guardian. If they are 18 or older and have a guardian appointed to them instead of parents, or if they are 18 or older and the parent has gone to court to become their legal guardian, then they must provide legal documentation showing they have guardianship and what they have guardianship over (e.g., their person, their finances, etc.). This must be provided along with the initial registration paperwork before they can begin attending any Therapeutic Recreation & Inclusion Services program. Mandated Reporting Any suspected abuse or neglect issues noticed by staff will be reported to the proper authorities per NRS 432B220. Returned Checks It is the policy of the City of Henderson to accept personal or business checks drawn upon a Nevada bank, savings and loan or credit union as a courtesy to our customers for payment of all application costs, license permits or services. Returned checks will be considered non-payment. Patrons who pay for services with checks that are returned due to insufficient funds or on closed accounts will be charged a $25 administrative fee and will not be allowed to enroll in any services, events, activities, classes, programs, or leagues that are offered through the City of Henderson Public Works, Parks and Recreation Department until the amount of the check plus the $25 administrative fee have been paid in full. Patrons with numerous returned checks will be placed on a cash and credit card only basis for up to one calendar year. After that time, the patron may petition the Administrative supervisor for return to normal payment status.
