We are delighted you are attending the Governor’s Schools for the Sciences and Engineering. We will now enter a period of information exchange before your arrival on June 5. Please complete the following forms and submit them, preferably by email, by April 21, 2017.
You will find a PERSONAL DATA FORM and a MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION FORM. The purpose of the Medical Authorization Form is to empower us to act as a surrogate for your parent/guardian should circumstances so demand. In the unlikely case of a medical emergency, if your parents cannot be reached for consultation, we would like your permission to implement the best judgment of the medical personnel. Please understand that the Governor's School program provides only for the cost of first-aid and referral medical expenses at the UT Medical Center. Be sure that you are carrying appropriate information about your family medical insurance and family physician, just as you would on any other trip away from home.
You also find two forms for our field trips on the first two Saturdays (June 10 and 17). These are fun educational activities and team-building exercises. One trip will be to Mountain Challenge, the other to the Ocoee River and the TVA dams.
Finally, you will find the updated copy of the STUDENT HANDBOOK, which details the OPERATING POLICIES of the School. We will also give you a copy when you arrive at the school. Also posted is a PARENT CERTIFICATION FORM. This form must be signed by you and by a parent or guardian, indicating you have read the handbook, and returned to us. If you desire to attend OFF-CAMPUS RELIGIOUS SERVICES, complete and submit the Religious Services permission form giving us permission to provide transportation.
In May, you will receive additional information on specific dates of special activities plus last minute instructions concerning your arrival and participation in the school. We would like you to inform your parents/guardians of the Opening Ceremony and Closing Ceremony for the School. We hope they will be the guests of the Governor's School at the opening ceremony on the afternoon of June 4, and at the closing ceremony on July 1.
Thanks for your help and cooperation in our planning efforts. We look forward to meeting you and working with you this summer. If you or your parents have any questions about the purpose of any of these forms or difficulty filling them out/submitting them online, please contact us. Due to being in and out of the office daily the best way to reach us is via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember to submit all documents by April 21, 2017.
