TMS Acknowledgement of Risk For Winter Sports
The 2020-2021 winter sports season will officially begin in January (Basketball & Cheer) and March (Wrestling & Girls Volleyball). Because of COVID -19, this winter will look very different then previous seasons with many guidelines and procedures put in place to help protect our athletes, teams, coaches and families.
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of large groups of people.
The Hopewell Valley Regional School District and the Hopewell Valley Athletic Department, with guidance from the NJSIAA, NJ Department of Health and the CDC, have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, HVRSD cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19 as a result of participating in winter athletics.
Children who have compromised immune systems are at higher risk. This includes but is not limited to children with the following:
Autoimmune disorders, such as Crohns disease, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
Chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
Serious heart conditions
If your child is at a higher risk, it is recommended they not return to in-person activities until there is little to no COVID-19 in our community.
By typing my name below, I am signing this agreement. I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating in the winter season with their high school teams, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 during the winter season may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, coaches, other athletes, volunteer coaches, and other participants and their families.
