WAIVER, RELEASE INDEMNITY AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT

In consideration of being allowed to participate in the 2022 Auditions for Morristown ONSTAGE, I hereby acknowledge and agree to the following:

1.    I agree to indemnify, hold free and harmless, assume liability for, and defend the Morris School District Board of Education (“BOE”), its chartered affiliates, agents, servants, employees, administrators, Board Members, and the Morris Educational Foundation and its Board Members, employees, volunteers, successors and assigns (collectively the "MEF"), from any and all costs and expenses, including but not limited to attorney’s  fees,  reasonable investigative  and  discovery  costs,  court costs,  and  all other sums which the BOE, its chartered affiliates, agents, servants, employees, administrators, and Board Members may pay or become obligated to pay, all and every demand for, claim or assertion of liability or any claim or action founded thereon, arising or alleged to have arisen out of my use or potential use of district facilities, equipment, or fields.

2.    I understand that Morris School District property, facilities and equipment includes, but is not limited to, all areas identified in the application and/or permit, sidewalks, walkways, parking lots, entrances, stairs, and all other areas incidental to and/or connected with the use of the premises.

3.    In addition to the use of Morris School District property, facilities and equipment, I recognize that COVID-19 is primarily spread from person-to-person and can even be spread by people who are not showing symptoms. I further recognize that COVID-19 may be spread by coming into contact with surfaces or objects that have the virus on it. I recognize and voluntarily accept that the voluntary activity that I am engaging in may bring participants into contact with persons or objects carrying the virus and that through such contact, the participants may become infected or infect others with COVID-19. I have been fully informed that engaging in this voluntary activity could INCREASE the participant’s risk of contracting COVID-19 and the potential to pass the virus along to others.

4.    I hereby forever release, discharge and acquit the District and its board, officers, agents, employees, volunteers, successors, and assigns (collectively the “District”), and the Morris Educational Foundation and its Board Members, employees, volunteers, successors and assigns (collectively the "MEF"), from any and all claims, including, but not limited to, claims for illness, death, personal injury or damage to property of any nature which may arise from or in connection with any exposure or potential exposure to COVID-19 as a result of this voluntary activity. I release the District and the MEF from responsibility for any such injury or damage, including death, that may result before, during or subsequent to the herein described activity. I agree and covenant not to sue the District or the MEF for any such injury or damage, including death, which may be caused by exposure or potential exposure to COVID-19 as a result of this voluntary activity.

5.    I agree to bind myself, my successors and assigns, and will indemnify and hold harmless the District and the MEF from any and all loss, including, but not limited to, damage or injury, pain, suffering, illness, or loss, including death, that may occur as a result of the voluntary activity, including any claims brought by third-parties who may have become exposed to COVID-19 as a result of this voluntary activity. I further agree that if a suit is brought against the District or the MEF for any claim released, or any risk or liability assumed, by me under this Agreement, that I will be responsible for attorney’s fees and any costs incurred by the District or the MEF in defending such action. As a condition for use of property of the District, and to the fullest extent permitted by law, I agree to defend, indemnify, save and hold harmless the MEF and the Morris School District, its employees, representatives, and agents from any and all losses, claims, liabilities, demands, lawsuits, allegations, and judgments, including attorney fees and recoverable costs, (singularly or collectively 'claims') including claims for bodily, emotional, and personal injury, property damage or loss, brought or made against it, arising out of, relating to, caused by, or resulting from my use of the District’s facilities, including claims relating to, arising out of, or caused by the physical condition of the facilities, whether or not the basis of the claim(s) was caused by or contributed to, in whole or in part, by me, my successors and assigns.

6.    I hereby assume and accept all risk and liability for any losses, damages, expenses, personal and bodily injuries (including death), which may be suffered or sustained by any person as a result of engaging in this voluntary activity due to exposure or potential exposure to COVID-19. I understand that neither the MEF, the District, nor its insurer, or its workers’ compensation policy, provides me, any other participants, or any other person, any medical or other coverage for injury or loss resulting from COVID-19.

7.    I agree to implement appropriate hygiene, screening, social distancing, and supervision procedures to protect myself and other participants engaging in the voluntary activity and others who may become infected with COVID-19 as a result of the voluntary activity. I am responsible to act in accordance with the appropriate guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), the New Jersey Department of Education (“NJDOE”). and/or any other applicable federal, state and local guidance with regard to COVID-19 protocols relating to and regarding the voluntary activity.

8.    I expressly agree that I have carefully read this Agreement and understand its effects. This is a binding legal document, an enforceable contract and not a mere recital. It is the intent of the parties that if any part of this Agreement is held invalid, then the remainder of its provisions will remain enforceable to the fullest extent allowable by law.

I HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT, AND HAVE SIGNED IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT, ASSURANCE, OR GUARANTEE BEING MADE TO ME AND INTEND MY SIGNATURE TO BE A COMPLETE AND UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE OF ALL LIABILITY TO THE GREATEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.
