·         Use the buddy system. Make sure you have someone with you when you leave and make sure you inform your room leader of where you are going. Should your student separate themselves from the group, one adult will try to locate them, and parents will be contacted. Example: Boys and girls are not allowed to enter the same room without an adult chaperone.

·         Smoking/Drinking/Illegal Drugs: Tobacco products are not used at student events, even if legal age. 

·         Prescription Medicines: Written details such as dosage, and timing should be given to room leader of student, should this be required during the event. 

·         Cell Phones/Devices: While we cannot control students cell phone usage entirely, (given hotels have free WIFI), we would like to set guidelines. Please discuss what is appropriate and what’s not with your student. Cell phones will be put away from Midnight until 7am. 

·         We expect students to put away cell phones and other devices during the main conference session. Taking photos and videos are permissible during activities where it is not a distraction. 

Example: Scrolling social media, selfies, or gaming while the conference speaker is on stage is not allowed. MOTION guidelines suggest disconnecting from everyday lives will help students focus on what God is doing in them at MOTION.
