The Innovation Institute Terms and Conditions of service apply to all academic enrichment programs operated by The Innovation Institute. “Parent(s)/guardian(s)” are defined as those charged with legal responsibility for the child or children, person or persons that he/she/they (the parent(s)/guardian(s) have enrolled at The Innovation Institute. Said “child or children, person or persons” enrolled at The Innovation Institute are referred to as “participant/attendee” herein.

1. Release from Liability

The participant/attendee has permission to participate in all class activities led by The Innovation Institute staff and its visiting science or engineering specialist or volunteers. In the highly unlikely event of an emergency, the parent(s)/guardian(s) of participant/attendee gives The Innovation Institute permission to seek emergency medical treatment, including ordering of diagnostics tests (e.g., MRIs, x-rays or blood draws, etc), if deemed necessary and/or advisable by a healthcare professional. Additionally, the parent(s)/guardian(s) gives permission to the healthcare professional (e.g., EMS worker, nurse, physician, etc.) responding to any health/medical emergency to secure and administer emergency medical or surgical treatment and/or hospitalization, if necessary. In these cases, The Innovation Institute will make every effort to contact the parent(s)/guardian(s) immediately and notify them regarding any required care; however, care will not be denied or delayed for lack of parental/guardian contact or consent, as this release provides that.

I HEREBY WAIVE AND RELEASE THE INNOVATION INSTITUTE, THE INNOVATION INSTITUTE CORPORATION, ITS OWNERS, AGENTS, PARTNERS, FACILITY PROVIDERS, AND EMPLOYEES FROM LIABILITY FOR ANY INJURY OR ILLNESS INCURRED WHILE AT THE INNOVATION INSTITUTE, RESULTING FROM ORDINARY NEGLIGENCE (I.E., AN ACCIDENT). I AGREE THAT THERE IS MINIMAL RISK OF INJURY TO THE PARTICIPANT AS A RESULT OF THE INNOVATION INSTITUTE ACTIVITIES, AND KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISK OF SUCH INJURY. HOWEVER, I AGREE THAT I AM NOT RELEASING THE INNOVATION INSTITUTE AND THE INNOVATION INSTITUTE CORPORATION, ITS OWNERS, AGENTS, PARTNERS, FACILITY PROVIDERS, AND EMPLOYEES FROM GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR RECKLESS CONDUCT. TO THE EXTENT THIS RELEASE CONFLICTS WITH COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS LAW GOVERNING RELEASES, THIS RELEASE IS TO BE GIVEN THE FULLEST FORCE AND EFFECT PERMITTED UNDER STATE LAW. IF THIS RELEASE OR ASPECTS THEREIN ARE DETERMINED TO BE INVALID UNDER THE LAWS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS, THEN THIS RELEASE SHALL BE STRICKEN FROM THIS CONTRACT, BUT ALL OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT.

2. Enrollment Information

By authorizing the participant/attendee to attend The Innovation Institute, the parent(s)/guardian(s) must agree to all Terms and Conditions. By completing the registration and enrollment process, the parent/guardian provides voluntary and knowing agreement to the contents of the Innovation Institute's Terms and Conditions.

All information about the participant/attendee that The Innovation Institute collects is considered confidential and used to aid its staff, visiting science and engineering specialists or volunteers in assessing crucial information regarding health and wellness and facilitating the best possible learning experience for the participant/attendee.

  • Participant/attendee is officially enrolled at The Innovation Institute only after a written or electronic (i.e., email) enrollment confirmation is sent from The Innovation Institute.

2a. Providing Enrollment Information

Upon enrollment, The Innovation Institute requires completion of a Health and Wellness Form, a Student Profile Form, Equipment, Supplies and Facilities Respect Use Form, and a Pick-Up and Drop-Off Form. These forms both request and convey information and policy regarding The Innovation Institute and expectations of parent(s)/guardian(s) and their participant(s)/attendee(s). This includes information about the participant/attendee including but not limited to date of birth, gender, allergies, best participant/attendee transition approaches, etc.

The Innovation Institute requires the completion of such forms for informational and/or precautionary purposes in order to help its staff, visiting science and engineering specialists or volunteers ensure the health and well-being of and best learning experience for each and all participant(s)/attendee(s) collectively. The Innovation Institute requires the completion of forms relating policy to create clarity about the rules, guidelines, policies, etc., of The Innovation Institute. These rules, guidelines, policies, etc. are for the health, safety, well-being and harmonious function of The Innovation Institute and its environs.

All forms are to be completed by the participant/attendee's parent(s)/guardian(s) only and submitted ten business days (two weeks) prior to the start of classes.

These four forms are referred to and explained within the Terms and Conditions.

The Health and Wellness Form includes requests for the:

  • Primary Contact Person in case of emergency along with a Secondary Contact Person and information concerning these parties—such as name of contacts, phone numbers, email, and address.
  • Participants/attendee’s primary care physician’s name and contact information.
  • Participant/attendee’s proof of immunization from his/her physician.
  • Medical insurance carrier and the policy number of the participant/attendee. If the participant/attendee is not covered under a health insurance plan, or if parent(s)/guardian(s) do not wish to provide The Innovation Institute with medical insurance information, the parent(s)/guardian(s) agree(s) to accept all financial liability in the highly unlikely event that the participant/attendee should become injured while attending The Innovation Institute. Parent/guardian(s) release and indemnify The Innovation Institute from any and all financial responsibilities.
  • Full disclosure of the participant/attendee’s specific limitations to participate in any Innovation Institute activities, i.e., meditation/basic yoga, science or engineering labs or classroom learning. If no restriction information is provided, the parent(s)/guardian(s) thereby certifies that the participant/attendee is in good physical and mental health and able to participate in all of The Innovation Institute’s activities. The parent(s)/guardian(s) agrees to identify any medical condition or history (including psychiatric, neuropsychological or learning related) that would require special attention by The Innovation Institute upon enrollment.
  • Parent/ Guardian to inform in writing The Innovation Institute of any known allergies, e.g., seasonal; food-related, e.g., gluten, grains, e.g., popcorn; materials-related, e.g., latex and adverse drug reactions and if so, whether the participant/attendee will have an EpiPen, inhaler or other prescribed medication to be identified on the Health and Wellness Form.

The parent(s)/guardian(s) certifies that he/she/they know of no restrictions, cognitive, emotional or physical impairments, or any other factors, which in any manner may limit the participant/attendee’s participation in such a program.

In the highly unlikely event of an emergency requiring medical attention, the parent(s)/guardian(s) gives permission to The Innovation Institute to arrange necessary related emergency transportation for the participant. Parent/guardian agrees to release any medical or personal records necessary for insurance purposes. The Innovation Institute will make every attempt to contact the parent(s)/guardian(s) or the emergency contact(s) listed on the participant/attendees account before taking this action. Parents and guardians acknowledge that they are responsible for medical expenses due to the participant/attendee’s illness or injury.

The parent(s)/guardian(s) authorizes the Innovation Institute staff, visiting science or engineering specialists or volunteers to attend to minor medical issues or injuries the participant/attendee may incur while at The Innovation Institute (e.g., placing a band aid on a paper cut, providing an icepack for a minor bruise), etc.

The Innovation Institute does not directly or indirectly administer medication. It has a policy of not “administering medicine” but seeks to be informed of any medicines taken during class time for informational purposes only. It is the responsibility of parent(s)/guardian(s) to develop appropriate medicine administration protocols with his or her child.
