Prior to entering the zone of safety for these purposes, the offender shall inform school or child care center administrators of my status
as a registered sex offender and shall update monthly, or as often as required by the school or center the information about the specific times the offender will be within the zone of safety. The safety zone does not apply when the offender is receiving treatment at a hospital or other medical services facility. The safety zone does not prevent the offender from attending a recognized church or religious denomination for worship, however, they must notify the religious leader of their status as a sex offender and receive written permission to attend.
