Schools are continually concerned about the safety of students. This concern is intensified in those instances where class activities involve the use of power machinery. Teachers in these courses take special care to supervise machine operation, outline prescribed safety procedures, and instruct in the proper use of the apparatus involved. Despite these precautions, accidents can still occur. In recognition of this fact, the School District has instigated the following regulation:
· Any student enrolled in a class where potentially harmful machinery is utilized must provide verification that they are covered by insurance that would be applicable in the case of a classroom mishap or accident.
To comply with the regulation, an Insurance Verification Form must be completed and signed by the appropriate parent, and filed in the Principal’s office by ALL students in the indicated courses.
