    Dear Parent or Guardian:

    We, the MPS Science Teachers, feel that you should be informed regarding your school’s effort to create and maintain a safe science classroom/laboratory environment. With the cooperation of the instructors, parents, and students, a safety instruction program can eliminate, prevent, and correct possible hazards.

    You should be aware of the safety instructions that your son/daughter will receive before engaging in any laboratory work. Please read the list of safety rules available online at www.yoursitehere with your student. No student will be permitted to perform laboratory activities unless this agreement is signed by both the student and parent/guardian and is on file with the teacher.

    Your signature on this agreement indicates that you have read the Student Safety Agreement, are aware of the measures taken to ensure the safety of your son/daughter in the laboratory, and will instruct your son/daughter to uphold his/her agreement to follow these rules and procedures in the laboratory.
