SSD Covid Hold Harmless

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to person contact. Sandra’s School of Dance (SSD) has put in place the aforementioned preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, SSD cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending SSD in-person classes could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.


Sandra’s School of Dance will do our part in taking temperatures, asking screening questions whenever each student arrives, and requiring masks of all individuals who enter the building, By doing this we are reducing the risk of contracting COVID-19 but we are not able to completely eliminate the risk as we are not able to control conditions for families and individuals when they are not at the school.


By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending SSD in person classes, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. Although SSD has taken the above-referenced measures to keep all children and parents safe, I understand that the risk  of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at SSD may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, SSD employees, representatives, volunteers, students and their families.


I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself, including illness, death, damages, loss, claim, liability or expense of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at SSD (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless SSD, its employees, agents and representatives, of and from the Claims. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of SSD, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during or after participation at SSD.

By signing you agree that your child(ren) has NOT traveled by air in the last 14 days and is NOT experiencing any of the following symptoms:

▪ No fever for 2 weeks
▪ No cough
▪ No cold/flu symptoms such as chills, muscle pain, headache or sore throat
▪ No shortness of breath
▪ No loss of smell/taste
▪ No positive COVID-19 test
▪ No close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 Should your experience change at any point in time, you are obligated to notify the studio. This form must be printed, signed and turned in to SSD before your child(ren) may participate in “in person classes” starting June 8th, 2020. NO Staff or Students will be permitted without a signed Release Form

Contact Front Desk for this form prior to taking first dance class.
