In signing below, I (the parent/guardian of the student named below), attest that I have read the information about COVID-19 and understand the potential health implications of this virus. I understand that there is no current vaccine for COVID-19 and that due to its contagious nature, contact with others, or contact with surfaces that have been exposed to the virus, could lead to infection. Additionally, individuals who may have been infected with this virus may be asymptomatic for a period of time, or may never become symptomatic at all.
I further understand that The Ethel Walker School is closely monitoring this situation and will be putting in place reasonable preventative measures aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19. These measures will require my child to respect and abide by the School’s policies, including rules regarding physically distancing, face coverings, hygiene and other policies. In signing below, I acknowledge that the health and safety risks posed by COVID-19 cannot be completely eliminated, despite the implementation of reasonable and age-appropriate precautions and protocol and that neither The Ethel Walker School nor public health officials can guarantee that any individual participating in on-campus programming at the School will not come into contact with COVID-19 and/or contract such illness.
By enrolling my child in The Ethel Walker School and in signing below, I acknowledge that I understand the importance of abiding by the School’s health and safety policies as they may evolve in response to updated public health guidance. More importantly, I expressly understand that it is shared responsibility of every member of The Ethel Walker School community to do their part to minimize the risks associated with COVID-19. By signing below, I acknowledge the risks associated with COVID-19 and reaffirm my commitment to comply with School rules and will ensure that my child understands the importance of following the School’s health and safety policies prior to my child coming to campus.
As a student, by signing below, I agree to abide by the procedures and protocols outlined by the school for the prevention of COVID transmission, understanding that my decisions have an impact on the health and well-being of all those in the Walker’s community.
