Oswegoland Park District is proud to announce our use of ePACT- an online system to collect and manage our participants’ emergency information and waiver releases. This replaces our traditional Health and Emergency form. ePACT is an online emergency network, where you can securely add, manage, and share your child’s key health and emergency contact details with us.
After you register, you’ll receive an email invitation that will guide you through a few quick steps to set up your account and share your child’s information with us. This must be completed before your child can begin the program.
Questions? Contact Ellen Sherer at 630.554.4064.
The Park District will make reasonable, feasible, and practical accommodations to allow children with life-threatening allergies to participate in our programs. We recommend that the parent or guardian reads our policy in full and provides the Park District with all information, training, authorizations, and waiver/release forms prior to registering a child with a life-threatening allergy.
