The risks associated with participation in The Radical Monarchs, may range from minor to severe injuries, illness, disease, disability, or death. Inherent risks may be compounded by a Monarch’s failure to strictly follow safety guidelines or instructions. Circumstances could require immediate medical attention. In the event that a parent or guardian cannot be timely consulted during a medical emergency, I agree The Radical Monarchs its employees, agents, or representatives may authorize treatment by licensed medical, dental or emergency response professionals. I agree to be financially responsible for such medical, dental or emergency care.
For information I want to obtain regarding specific risks or activities, I agree to ask questions via email before signing this Agreement and permitting my child or ward to participate in The Radical Monarchs.
A participant’s failure to abide by The Radical Monarchs rules and rules associated with a specific activity, as well as other behavioral expectations, may result in a Radical Monarch being sent home. Should this be necessary, the parent or guardian will be responsible for any and all costs incurred. In addition, the parent or guardian will be responsible for transporting the student back home.
In consideration of The Radical Monarchs permitting my child or ward to participate in the program I agree for myself and on behalf of my child or ward to: (1) assume all of the risks of injury, loss, kidnapping, assault, child run-away, illness, disease, disability, disfigurement, or death of my child or ward arising from their participation and all related events or incidents; (2) release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue The Radical Monarchs and its board of trustees, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, chaperones, and representatives as to all losses, damages, rights, claims, demands, and liabilities arising out of or related to my child's or ward's participation and all related events or incidents; and (3) indemnify and hold harmless The Radical Monarchs and its trustees, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, chaperones and representatives from all claims, actions, suits, costs, expenses, attorney's' fees, damages, and liabilities as a direct or indirect consequence of participation by my child or ward.
I understand that my above assumption of risks, release, waiver, discharge, covenant not to sue, and agreement to indemnify and hold harmless will be applicable even in circumstances of negligence by The Radical Monarchs, its trustees, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, chaperons, or representatives. In signing this Agreement, I am not relying on any promise or representation not stated in this Agreement, and I understand The Radical Monarchs are relying on this Agreement in permitting my student to participate. This Agreement cannot be modified, except in a writing that refers to this Agreement, signed by me and the Co-Founders. Both parents and legal guardians must sign this Agreement before a student may participate. If only one parent/guardian is living or has sole legal custody, then only that person needs to sign. The signing parent or guardian, however, shall notify the noncustodial parent or guardian of the contents of this Agreement before signing and submitting it. Any failure of both parents and legal guardians to sign this Agreement shall nonetheless bind my child to its terms and conditions.
I UNDERSTAND THAT I AM GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS, FOR MY CHILD, MYSELF AND OUR REPRESENTATIVES, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE, AND I INTEND TO RELINQUISH SUCH RIGHTS TO THE GREATEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.
