Informed Consent Document
Dear Lancer Parent, Guardian, and Student-Athlete,

Saint Francis High School believes it is essential to the physical and mental well being of our student-athletes to return to physical activity and sports in guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Santa Clara County. The goal of returning to play is to do so as safely as possible for all student-athletes and coaches. The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and families is of utmost importance.

Saint Francis High School is taking reasonable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, including tracking and following applicable county, state and federal guidance. However, the possibility of transmission cannot be eliminated. Our athletic department and staff are closely monitoring this situation and have put in place reasonable preventative measures aimed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Students and families must be aware of and acknowledge the risks before participating in athletics at Saint Francis High School. By signing this Informed Consent Agreement, you acknowledge, accept, and agree to the following:

- Participation in athletics is purely voluntary.

- Student-Athlete has permission to participate in athletic meetings, practices and competitions as directed by coaching staff.

- If Student-Athlete tests positive for COVID-19 Parent/Guardian agrees to immediately inform Saint Francis High School who is required to immediately contact Santa Clara County Health Officials to provide information regarding the confirmed positive test, including Student-Athlete’s name and contact information. I consent to Saint Francis High School providing such information to the administrative body(ies) as directed by such administrative body(ies).

- I am aware that Parent/Guardian and Student-Athlete may be exposed to COVID-19 while participating or attending meetings, practices and/or competitions. I understand that this exposure carries a risk of infection, serious injury, or death.

- The long-term effects of COVID-19 are, at present, unknown; even people with mild cases may experience long-term complications. At present, it cannot be predicted who will become severely ill if infected.

- COVID-19 can lead to serious medical conditions and death for people of all ages. Adolescents are particularly at risk for complications such as multi-system inflammatory disease in children (MIS-C) and myocarditis.

- I acknowledge Saint Francis High School must comply with any mandates issued by an entity with the authority over Saint Francis High School and/or high school athletics and agree to comply with any such directives even if issued after signature to the Informed Consent document.

- Student-Athlete is voluntarily participating in athletics and Parent/Guardian agrees to assume any and all risks of infection, injury, or death, whether those risks are known or unknown.

- We forever release Saint Francis High School, its employees, agents, Board Members, and/or other related entities from any liabilities, causes of action, lawsuits, claims, demands, or damages of any kind whatsoever that we, our assignees, heirs, guardians, next of kin, spouse, and/or legal representatives have, or may have in the future, related to or stemming from our Student-Athlete’s participation in athletics.

By opting to allow the Student-Athlete to participate in athletics, I agree that the parent and student-athlete will abide by any such health and safety protocols that Saint Francis High School may require. We understand that promoting public health is a shared responsibility and that every member of the Lancer community must do their part to minimize risks.
