Image Capture Rules, Megan's Law and Child Safety:
The Grange supports child safety and as such, requires that image capture of children on grange property occur only with prior custodial parent or legal guardian permission, using a Mt. Hamilton Grange Release form. Images of minor children on grange property, or sharing, reproducing, and/or posting such images online, in print, or in any other form, is not permitted. Anyone taking unauthorized photos of minors, or lingering around minors, will be reported to the authorities. 

The California Department of Justice Megan's Law Web site provides information about child safety in specific areas of California by county, zip code and street address. The DOJ Web site also offers recommended child safety practices for parents and guardians of young children and teens. Mt. Hamilton Grange makes child safety a priority by informing parents about these online tools and resources, by attempting to prevent the capture of images of minors without prior custodial parent/guardian consent, and by requiring child-safe conduct at the grange when minors are present. 

Likewise, image capture of anyone on grange property, excluding grange security cameras and devices, is not permitted without prior permission from both the grange and the person(s) being captured in such imagery. Images may not be shared or reproduced in any form, and/or posted online, without prior permission by the person(s) shown in the image(s), using a Mt. Hamilton Grange Release Form. 

Please contact the grange for a copy of the release form.
