My son/daughter, named above, has my permission to participate in activities including sports, fine arts events, field trips, retreats, and service projects during this school year at Fr. Tolton Catholic High School and to travel on the transportation provided or arranged by Fr. Tolton Catholic High School. I understand that this is not a comprehensive list of activities; however, I also understand that the school will provide additional details as events arise.

The undersigned parent/guardian of the above-named student acknowledges the inherent risks of participation in activities and associated travel and recognizes that injuries, some extremely serious and even resulting in death, can and do occur as a result of such participation. Participants agree to engage in these activities at their own risk and release and discharge Fr. Tolton Catholic High School from any and all claims of negligence by the school and its employees. The undersigned agrees to save, indemnify, and keep harmless Fr. Tolton Catholic High School, the Tolton Catholic Board and its personnel including volunteers, and the Diocese of Jefferson City against any and all liability, claims, judgments, or demands for damages arising as a result of injuries sustained while participating in Fr.

Agreement to Comply
My student and I have read, understand, and agree to comply with the Fr. Tolton Catholic High School Rules and Regulations for this school year as stated in the school handbook. We agree to accept the penalties for violations. We acknowledge the following:
- Any student not at school by 9:45am will not be eligible to participate in practice, contests, rehearsals or any co-curricular events that day, unless the tardy has been pre-approved by the President/Principal.
- A student may not leave school early to go home ill and then participate in an activity.
- In the event that a student must miss academic time for doctor’s appointments, physical therapy, etc., the student must return to school within 1 hour and 30 minutes from the time he/she leaves the school, or he/she may not participate in practices, rehearsals, dances, plays, games, events, etc. that day. In addition, these school office must be notified.
- If a student is truant on the day of an event or contest, the student shall not be considered eligible on that date. Further, the student cannot be certified eligible to participate on any subsequent date until the student attends a full day of classes.
Physical Readiness and Treatment Authorization
If my student participates in sports, the undersigned parent/guardian of the above-named student certifies that the student is free from communicable diseases and is fit for full and vigorous participation in sports. Further, the undersigned grant consent for representatives of Fr. Tolton Catholic High School to seek medical attention and for all medical care as prescribed by a duly licensed physician administered under any and all conditions as necessary to preserve life, limb, or well-being of the student. Additionally, the undersigned grant consent for representatives of PEAK/Sport and Spine (athletic trainers provided) to treat any and all injuries/medical conditions associated with athletic participation, including but not limited to concussions, heat illnesses (use of rectal thermometers in the event of a severe medical emergency), minor to severe injuries, general illnesses, and the providing or rehabilitative physical therapy related to injuries, etc.
Pending Legal Problems
If my student participates in a MSHSAA-regulated sport, the undersigned parent/guardian of the above-named student understands that MSHSAA rules require that if my son/daughter encounters a problem with the law, I must contact the Athletic Director by the end of the next school day to inform him. I further understand that failure to do so could result in my son/daughter being declared ineligible for the remainder of the sports season as it may result in a scenario in which games could be forfeited. MSHSAA rules prohibit participation by any student who has a pending problem with the law until the court-ordered sentence has been completed, and/or all legal proceedings have been cleared up.
Student Release of Information
If my student participates in sports, I hereby authorize the athletic trainers/physicians to release information regarding the health status of my son/daughter to their coach as it relates to their ability to participate in the care of their injuries/illnesses.
