We, the undersigned, understand that a bus trip to and party at destinations within a 150 mile radius from the Woodside Priory School (together referred to in this Release as the “Destinations”) has been organized by several parents of the Woodside Priory 12th grade class and is not a school-sponsored event. There will be bus transportation to and from the destinations (leaving from Priory School). At the event, students will engage in eating, non-alcoholic drinking and other activities found at parties. The bus transportation and events are referred to as the “2018 Grad Party.”
By signing below, student, parents and/or guardians agree to release from liability the Parent Organizers (listed below) of this event, the Woodside Priory School, any additional parent volunteers assisting at 2018 Grad Party, and the Destinations including its principals, directors, officers, agents, employees and volunteers, of any and all liability associated with any acts, intentional or non-intentional, resulting in injury or death, or personal property damage at the Destinations.
The undersigned are aware that participation in the 2018 Grad Party, use of the bus and facilities located on the bus and at the Destinations, involves risks of injury to persons or property, including, but not limited to, risks related to human error, participation, and damage to personal property. The undersigned understands too, it is impossible for the Parent Organizers, parent volunteers, the bus company, or the Destinations to guarantee absolute safety. The undersigned also understands that we are responsible for our own safety, and we assume that responsibility. By signing below, we agree to comply with the rules received and the directions of the bus company, the Destinations, and the Parent Organizers.
BY SIGNING BELOW, WE FREELY ASSUME ALL RISKS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO OUR TRAVEL TO/FROM AND STAY AT THE DESTINATIONS, NO MATTER IF ANY DAMAGE OR HARM OF ANY KIND OCCURS BEFORE, IN BETWEEN, DURING OR AFTER SUCH STAY AT THE DESTINATIONS OR AT ANY TIME DURING THE 2018 GRAD PARTY.
As lawful consideration for the undersigned being permitted to participate in the 2018 Grad Party, WE AGREE TO RELEASE FROM ANY LEGAL LIABILITY AND AGREE NOT TO SUE THE PARENT ORGANIZERS, PARENT VOLUNTEERS, WOODSIDE PRIORY SCHOOL OR THE DESTINATIONS, their family members, heirs, agents, employees or volunteers for any and all injuries, property loss, property damage, or death caused by or resulting from any use of the facilities during this Grad Party, whether or not such injury, property loss, property damage, delay, or death was caused by alleged negligence. We further understand and agree that this release is to be binding upon our heirs and assignees. WE ARE AWARE THAT THIS CONTRACT IS LEGALLY BINDING AND THAT WE ARE RELEASING LEGAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT.
