Gleann Abhann Law Regarding Children
Gleann Abhann: Section 9.05 Children
(a) Any child under the age of legal consent attending any official function, must be in the company of a parent or legal guardian or have a letter of parental consent which designates an adult in attendance as responsible for the child and consent for the child to be treated in the case of a medical emergency, as well as a signed standard waiver.
(b) All waivers and letters of designation must be collected by the Autocrat or designated representative before a child may be admitted to site.
(c) The adult in charge of a child is responsible for any and all acts of the child.
(d) Children under the age of 12 must be within the sight or voice range of a designated adult, or responsible teenager – age 15 or older, at all times. Failure to do so may result in sanctions ranging from expulsion from site to notification of mundane authorities.
Sight or voice range will be determined by the Gulf Wars Staff. We realize that this is not necessarily the law in other kingdoms, but it is the law here and it will be enforced.

Sign in begins at 8:45 and at 12:45. Please pick up your child on time. Any children that have not been picked up by 11:15 AM and 3:15 PM will be taken to Watch and the Autocrats notified. Watch for changes. All Page School changes to the schedule will be posted on the chalk board next to the Page School Tent. Questions & Concerns, please see THL Muirgel inghean Ghriogair (Jennifer Andress) or email YouthActivities@gulfwars.org
