Code of Conduct
The Eastern Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation and Park District ("District") strives to uphold the core value of respect in all areas of the District's programs, services, and facilities. Appropriate social behavior, treatment of others, and care for property is expected of all District employees, patrons, and participants. Any physical, mental, verbal, or emotional mistreatment of oneself or others, and/or any intentional damage, vandalism, theft, or other mistreatment of the District's or others' property, will not be accepted or tolerated from anyone using any District facility or park (a "patron"), or participating in any District activity or program (a "participant"). All District employees shall be authorized to enforce this Code of Conduct, along with any rules and regulations applicable to the facility, activity, park, or program. All District patrons and participants shall be required to know and comply with any and all physically or digitally posted, or verbally communicated, policies, procedures, regulations, and/or rules established for specific programs, activities, parks, and/or facilities (together called the "Rules"). Any person acting in violation of this Code of Conduct or the Rules may be warned to stop the behavior or to remove themselves from the premises; may receive a “suspension” from the District's facilities, programs, or activities of up to one week; or may be subject to a “revocation” of the privilege of using District facilities or participating in District activities or programs for longer than one week. The imposition of warnings, removal from the premises, suspension, and revocation of privileges are not progressive in nature, and no specific District action is required to precede any other District action. The District may impose any of these actions as appropriate based upon the circumstances of the specific incident or occurrence to preserve the safety of District employees or other District patrons and participants, or to protect the District's or others' property. In the event a revocation (longer than one week) of privileges may be warranted, the Executive Director or his/her designee will issue a written notice of intent to revoke privileges to the individual. Such revocation may be for whatever period of time the District's Executive Director or his/her designee shall determine appropriate to preserve the safety of persons or protection of property, up to one year, unless a revocation of privileges of longer than one year has been approved in advance by the District's Board of Directors. The individual receiving the written notice of revocation will have three days to provide a response in writing to the Executive Director or his/her designee, which may be submitted by email or written letter. If the individual provides such a response, the Executive Director or his/her designee, or the Board of Directors if applicable, will review the response and provide a final decision on the revocation within four days. If the individual does not provide such a response, then the revocation shall become effective. No individual shall be permitted at District programs, activities, or facilities while they have a notice of revocation pending. Whenever possible, any Code of Conduct violation by a participant or patron 14 years of age or younger will be communicated at the time of the incident to an available adult, parent, or guardian. Please note that in accordance with the requirements of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and all subsequent amendments (together called the "ADA"), the District advocates full public participation in its facilities, parks, programs, and activities, and prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. Qualified individuals should please contact the District's ADA Coordinator for more information on reasonable accommodations and the District's Inclusion Process. Thank you for your cooperation and for helping the District improve well-being and promote a vibrant community for the residents, visitors, and future generations of Eastern Rio Blanco County!
Drop Off/Pick Up Policies
Drop Off: Doors to classrooms and gyms will open 15 minutes prior to class start time. We encourage parents/caregivers to honor the drop off time so participants are not standing outside in cold or rainy weather. Doors will not be opened earlier due to giving instructors and coaches time to properly prepare for the next class. Pick Up: Most instructors and coaches are teaching multiple classes in one day, in multiple locations. So to make sure they can get to their next class location and prepare for their class properly, please pick up participants within 5-10 minutes of their class ending. After 10 minutes, the parent/caregiver will receive a reminder phone call. After the 3rd late pick-up, there will be a $5.00 late pick up fee. After the 5th late pick-up your child’s participation may be terminated at the discretion of the Recreation Manager.
