If you need to submit a request for reasonable accommodations, please print, fill out and submit this form to Priscilla Perez - Recreation II Coordinator, prior to your child's first day of attendance in the program. Reasonable accommodations will be made based on a review of the request for accommodation.  An accommodation is not reasonable if it results in a fundamental change in the program.  Each time a participant enrolls in a program, a new request for reasonable accommodation must be made.  Failure to make a timely request for a reasonable accommodation may result in delay of the review and implementation of an accommodation or delay the participant's entry into the program.  Participants will be unable to attend the program until the request has been reviewed and a determination has been made.  Please allow up to five (5) working days for review.  All accommodation requests can be sent to
