I also know that the school district is not a guarantor of my son/daughter/legal charges safety and financially could not conduct this activity if it bore the risk of injury or death arising out of the same. I THEREFORE VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISKS OF LOSS, DAMAGE, INJURY OR DEATH TO MY son/daughter/legal charge arising out of his/her participation in this activity.

I further agree to indemnify, save harmless and defend the school district, its officers, agents, employees and representatives from and against all death, injuries, damages, whether incurred by judgement or settlement, including legal expense and attorney's fees, of whatever nature occurring during, by reason of, or arising out of my son/daughter/legal charge‘s participation in said activity, and I shall assume the defense and for settlement of any claim, suit or action brought against the school district or its officers, agents, employees or representatives to recover any such damages.
Further, on behalf of myself, my son/daughter/legal charge, and our personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin, I hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District, its officers, employees, agents or representatives for loss or damage and any claims or demands therefor on account of injury or death to my son/daughter/legal charge, whether caused by negligence of the school district or its employees, where such injury or death occurs during, by reason of, or arising out of this activity.
