Further, attending Hamilton Forest School could increase your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19. 

I represent and warrant to Hamilton Forest School that I, my children or immediate family members have not recently travelled outside of Canada, and do not have any symptoms of COVID-19, including, but not limited to, fever, cough, or difficulty breathing and have no medical condition that would make me and my child(ren)’s attendance at, or participation in, any activity at Hamilton Forest School more hazardous. 

By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I or my child(ren) may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending Hamilton Forest School. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Hamilton Forest School may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Hamilton Forest School employees, volunteers, clients and their families. 

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself and my child(ren) (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with attendance at Hamilton Forest School. 

I hereby release, covenant not to sue, and I discharge, and hold harmless Hamilton Forest School, its director, staff members, volunteers and board members, of and from any claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto, including any claims based on the actions, omissions or negligence of Hamilton Forest School.

Final comments
The program will be from 10:00am to 12:00pm on Saturday mornings at the pre-determined location. Please arrive by 9:55am and latest pick up time is 12:05pm. 

This is a rain, shine or snow program. Please make sure your child is dressed accordingly.

If your child is unable to attend the program one week, unfortunately there are no make up sessions or refunds.

If the provincial guidelines do not allow us to run this program due to Covid-19, all participants will be notified and we will resume when we are able to do so again. Masks will not be mandatory as we will be outside.

This is a drop off program. If parents/caregivers want to stay with us during the program, that is okay, it is asked you do not interfere in the learning. Please note that your child will get more out of the program if you let them learn to be independent and explore on their own.

Students can choose to have a small bag with them (for their water bottle, healthy snack, and sunscreen). *Not mandatory.
