I understand that program activities could include play and outdoor activities around and near the Active Expressions Art Academy grounds, hikes and walks there could be mosquitos, bees, ticks, poison ivy, and slippery and jagged surfaces among other dangers and risks. I also understand that my child may travel by school bus or private services and/or metro to local sites and be walking along downtown streets and in public and private museums and historical sites. I also understand that outdoor activities may occur in the hot sun and in the rain. I agree to see that my child is appropriately attired for program activities, and to provide insect repellant and sunscreen for my child to use at program. I will not expect the Active Expressions Art Academy to provide these items. I give my permission for Active Expressions Art Academy program leaders to apply or assist with the application of the repellant and sunscreen I provide.
In the event of illness, injury, and/or accident, I authorize the program instructor or any Active Expressions Art Academy employee to act on my behalf. They may approve any and all non-emergency or emergency treatment and are authorized to sign any and all medical release or required form(s) on my behalf. In the event of an emergency, I understand that I will be notified of the situation as soon as practicable. I agree to pay any necessary expenses not covered by Active Expressions Art Academy’s student accident policy incurred in the medical treatment of my child, including, but not limited to all transportation costs to and from a medical facility, and, if necessary, transportation to my home or medical facility of choice.
I understand that the Active Expressions Art Academy may, in its sole discretion, dismiss any program participant for inappropriate, disrespectful, or dangerous behavior at any time. In this event, I understand that I will not receive a refund of program fees for unattended days. If my child breaks or damages any property as a result of their direct or indirect behavior, I hereby agree to pay for its repair or replacement.
I understand that the risks associated with program activities could result in injury and/or death to my child. I hereby assume these risks and, knowing them, hereby give my child permission to participate. I understand that the Active Expressions Art Academy is not liable for any injuries or other occurrences due to indoor and outdoor program activities or related risks, and/or the actions or omissions of Active Expressions Art Academy program counselors, volunteers, employees, trustees, directors, officers, or any other entities being released.
