Pets Prohibited at GCSD Activities
Parents & Staff-
Just a reminder on a State Policy in which the Glenwood Activities Department enforces in regards to pets at activities & athletic events.
The policy reads:
Except as otherwise stated herein, no pets are permitted at events sanctioned by the IGHSAU/IHSAA. Any persons found with pet at an event will be removed from the premises. However, this policy shall comply with the provisions of Iowa Code 216C. As such, a person with a disability or a person training an assistive animal has the right to be accompanied by a service dog or an assistive animal, under control. The person is liable for damage done to any premises or facility by a service dog or assistive animal. A "service dog" means a dog specially trained at a recognized training facility to assist a person with a disability, whether described as a service dog, guide dog, hearing dog, support dog, independence dog, or otherwise. An "assistive animal" means a simian or other animal specially trained or in the process of being trained under the auspices of a recognized training facility to assist a person with a disability.
Thanks for your cooperation as we finish the Spring and welcome the Summer.
