Parent / Student Agreement and Release and Waiver of Liability
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING. THIS DOCUMENT INCLUDES A RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND WAIVER OF CERTAIN LEGAL RIGHTS.
Dear parents of future chefs,
We are lucky to be embarking on this unique skills-based culinary program. As you know the students will be using knives and other kitchen utensils/tools in class. They will be taught every facet of proper cutting techniques and knife/utensil handling. However, using a knife and other kitchen utensils in a school setting is a great responsibility and we ask you to read and sign the contract below along with your child.
I understand that misuse or mishandling of a knife and or any other kitchen utensil in class will result in immediate release from the class without refund. Such misuse includes but is not limited to: using a kitchen knife/utensil in a threatening manner against other students and teachers as well as “playing” with a kitchen knife/utensil in a way that was not taught in proper kitchen knife/utensil skills and that may result in injury to the student and/or others.
I understand that my child is not allowed to bring his/her own kitchen knife/utensil to school at any time and he/she cannot take the classroom kitchen knives/utensils out of the culinary classroom setting. According to DPS and school policy, bringing a knife to school or carrying one within school may result in a suspension.
I understand that despite proper food handling, cooking, and knife/utensil skills training, there are inherent risks associated with participation in a skills-based culinary program, including injuries or illness from use of cooking equipment and utensils, food-borne pathogens, and food allergies. There are also risks which cannot be anticipated. I hereby knowingly and voluntarily give my permission for my child to participate in all program activities, including those described above. I acknowledge and assume the risks involved in these activities, and for any damages, illness, injury or death resulting from such risks for my child.
I, hereby knowingly and voluntarily release and waive any claim of liability against Chef Maggie O’Toole with respect to any injury and illness occurring to my child while he/she participates in any and all culinary programs and activities related to this and all future middle school culinary program.
I hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless Chef Maggie O’Toole with respect to any claim asserted by or on behalf of my child as a result of injury and illness.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE ABOVE AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS DOCUMENT.
