---Parental / Guardian Policy
To All HVMFC Parents/Guest:   If you are a parent/guardian of at least one child (0-15 yrs. old) please read this policy for child/children between the ages of 0-15 yrs. old. 
When your child/children (0-15 yrs. old) comes onsite to HVMFC there has to be an adult/guardian that is 18 years of age or older that is present and responsible for them while at church.  The parent/guardian who is responsible for the minor (0-15 yrs. old) at church should not leave church grounds without their child/children, no exceptions.  This rule must be followed as no underage child (0-15 yrs. old) should be left alone at church without a responsible guardian onsite.  There can also be legal issues concerning abandonment if this happens. For example: if there is an emergency situation that takes place on the church grounds and the parent(s) / guardian is not present, the child or children will be considered abandoned by law.  This will not be an issue at HVMFC!  There will be no exceptions to this rule as all children between the ages of 0-15 years of age must have a responsible parent/guardian present on church grounds with them while at church. 
Remember, for every child that attends HVMFC’s Kid’s Village the person who signs the child/children into Kid’s Village is the person that is responsible for the child /children while onsite.  
Going forward all Teen Village event’s will be for Teens that are at least 16 years old or older, for teens between the ages of 13-15 yrs. old a parent or guardian must be present onsite.
Thanks for adhering to this policy as we grow forward!
Take Care Family,
