The Dorothy Gerber Strings Program (DGSP) is an educational initiative of the Great Lakes Center for the Arts (GLCFA). I agree that I, my student, and any accompanying adult (collectively the “Participant”) will follow the rules of GLCFA including all posted and/or verbal directions and instructions of GLCFA staff, independent contractors, and volunteers while present on the GLCFA premises and while participating in DGSP activities which may be held elsewhere.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. I agree that participation in the above-noted activity is voluntary and I have knowledge of and assume all risks for the activity to include injuries as well as exposure to communicable diseases, including COVID-19.
I certify that I understand current COVID-19 risks and symptoms and current CDC guidelines. I certify that my child has not had any symptoms of COVID-19/Coronavirus nor been exposed to anyone that had such symptoms or diagnosis in the last 14 days. I agree to notify GLCFA of any changes and I will NOT send my child to the GLCFA program activity if any symptoms develop or with notice of any exposure to COVID-19 until my student has been medically cleared.
In exchange for participation in GLCFA program activities, Participant hereby releases, discharges, and agrees to hold harmless Great Lakes Center for the Arts, and its directors, officers, volunteers, employees, agents, contractors, and representatives; other GLCFA program participants; GLCFA and program staff, sponsors, advertisers, and vendors; and the successor and assigns of each of them (each considered one of the “Releasees” herein), to the fullest extent permitted by law, from any and all liability, claims, demands, losses, and damages, which Participant has or may have for any claims or causes of action arising out of or relating in any manner to attendance at the GLCFA premises; attendance at, observation of and/or participation in any event or program at the GLCFA premises; or any related program activities which may be held elsewhere. In further exchange for participation in GLCFA program activities, Participant agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless any and all Releasees from and against any and all demands, suits, claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), including but not limited to, any claims by or on behalf of Participant or any accompanying minor, arising out of or relating in any manner to (i) Participant’s and/or an accompanying minor’s attendance at the GLCFA premises; attendance at, observation of, and/or participation in any event at the GLCFA premises; or any related activities, or (ii) Participant’s and/or an accompanying minor’s acts or omissions.
