  10. Safety: Monday “Do It To It” • Safety Guidelines: tool safety, proper ladder use, eye protection and appropriate work dress • Hydration: regular water breaks should be taken throughout the day – rule is every 20 minutes • At some work sites, teams will be given a short job specific construction tutorial

  11. SSP’s Healthy Eating Policy • Taking care of our bodies during mission at SSP goes hand-in hand with using our bodies to serve others • Meals are planned and cooked by two people • Menus are designed to be nutritionally satisfying • Junk food is not allowed: SSP plans Root beer floats and other traditional treats during the week • Vegetarian meals are always available Liz and Ian • Helping our in the kitchen is encouraged. SSP kitchens are a place for creating great food with lots of love and laughs

  12. Food: This policy will be conveyed to the church community as well through bulletin Dos Don’ts Candy Chips Soda Fried food Caffeine will not be allowed during the week • Peanuts • Trail mix • Granola bars • Pretzels • Goldfish **These are guidelines to reduce headaches, dehydration and promote healthy eating habits**

  13. Living in community • Living in community of 50-70 people means people simply can’t do whatever they’d like to do. It means that everyone is expected to participate in all activities and be on time. The guidelines help us support one another so that all participants can focus more on God and service and less on our individual desires

  14. Dress code • Prevent clothing or lack of clothing to be a distraction to any of our daily community activities • Be respectful and reflective of a more conservative dress standard in reservation communities • Dress codes will be enforced – not with jail time…

  15. Guidelines for dress • Sleeveless tops, tank tops, halter tops, half or crop tops are not allowed during the day. Tank tops are shorts are acceptable for sleeping but participants must be more fully clothed for evening worship • T-shirts must not display slogans or artwork which includes alcohol, tobacco, or obscenities • No short shorts. Shorts must be mid-thigh length. • Shorts and pants must not sag either

  16. Work dress • Closed toe shoes: work boots, or tennis shoes. No sandals or open toed shoes please • Long pants are not required at the work site, but are generally more comfortable when sitting on roofs, the ground and lumber • We will be creating a mission team bandana or hat – protects us from the sun

  17. Things that will not be welcome on our trip: leave these things at home please! These things are not permitted because they minimize the powerful impact of community and allow us to isolate ourselves from others. We are focusing on community on this trip, something that is commonly lost in our society today. • Electronic gadgets (other than cameras) • Cell Phones • iPods • Mini DVD players • Computers • CD players • Handheld games

  18. Parent Phone Tree Because we will have only three cell phones on this trip – we are asking that parents follow the phone tree to pass along information to all of the families who have students on the mission trip. Thank you!
