Waiver and Release Agreement
Waiver and Release Agreement
IN CONSIDERATION of being allowed to participate in any way in Valley Home School Association (VHSA or Releasee) related events and activities, the undersigned (Releasor) does:
1. Recognize and acknowledge that Valley Home School Association is a group of volunteer members and their families. The VHSA leadership team is comprised of members within our organization who have volunteered to guide activities and lead group discussions. This Agreement is intended to hold harmless those volunteer members in leadership and all volunteer members who help organize events, field trips, co-ops, parties, etc.
2. Acknowledge that they are responsible for themselves, their children, and their guests AT ALL TIMES. Any damage or liability to persons or property are the sole responsibility of the person (or in the case of minors, parents/legal guardians of minor child) responsible for said damage or liability. The Releasor does agree that the member/participant should inspect the facilities and equipment to be used, and if the Releasor/participant believes anything is unsafe, he or she should immediately advise a supervisor (advisor, manager, etc.) of such condition(s) and refuse to participate. By undersigning and participating the Releasor does acknowledge and fully understand that each member/participant will be engaging in activities that involve risk of serious injury, including permanent disability and death, and severe social and economic losses which might result not only from their own actions, inactions, or negligence but the action, inaction, and negligence of others, or the condition of the premises or of any equipment used. Further, that there may be other risks not known to us or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. Therefore, the Releasor does assume all the foregoing risks and accept personal responsibility for the damages following such injury, permanent disability or death.
3. Understand that VHSA is not required to maintain any insurance policy covering any circumstance arising from participation in these events or any activities associated with VHSA, and VHSA will not be responsible for any medical costs associated with an injury sustained by themselves, their children, and their guests.
By signing my name to this Waiver and Release Agreement, I, as agent for myself and family members, (the 'Releasor), being of lawful age, in consideration of being permitted to participate in home school support group meetings and home school activities scheduled for the 2018-2019 school year which are run and/or organized by member volunteers of VHSA, do WAIVE, RELEASE, and DISCHARGE and will be forever prevented from suing or otherwise claiming against any members of Valley Home School Association’s volunteer members and their families and, if applicable, teachers, volunteers, agents, and owners or lessors of premises used to conduct the event, all of which are hereinafter referred to as “Releasees,” from any and all liability to each of the undersigned, his or her heirs and next of kin for any and all claims, demands, losses or damages on account of injury, including death and damage to property, caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise while participating in or preparing for the above noted activity(s). I have been given the opportunity and have been encouraged to seek independent legal advice prior to signing this Waiver and Release Agreement. I understand that this Agreement is binding on me, my spouse, my heirs, my executors, administrators, personal representatives and assigns. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties to this release and the terms of this Agreement are contractual and not a mere recital. This Agreement will be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Nebraska, and it is acknowledged by the Releasor to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of this jurisdiction.
I HAVE READ THE ABOVE WAIVER AND RELEASE AGREEMENT, UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS WHICH I OR MY HEIRS, NEXT OF KIN, EXECUTORS, ADMINISTRATORS AND ASSIGNS MAY HAVE AGAINST THE RELEASEE(S) BY SIGNING IT, AND SIGN IT VOLUNTARILY.
