Schedule 280-B: Considerable Risk Activities
THE PRINCIPAL SHALL CHECK TO VERIFY LIABILITY COVERAGE EXISTS FOR EACH INSTANCE

Certain activities may create a foreseeable potential for injury and therefore require a great deal of thought and planning prior to implementation. Each situation is unique and therefore requires a consideration of risk and verification of liability coverage. For instance, coverage for one canoe activity DOES NOT extend automatically to similar activities.

Qualified and/or certified instructors shall be present at all times.

Classes are to be cancelled if the regular instructor is unable to attend. All rules and regulations shall be reviewed with students on an ongoing basis. Strict behavior guidelines and discipline actions shall be strictly adhered to by all participants and supervisors. Approved safety equipment appropriate to the activity shall be used at all times.

The following list of considerable risk activities establishes a base of activities that require verification for liability coverage. Activities should be assessed for risk as reasonably prudent to do so. The Principal holds the responsibility to check for liability coverage where any reasonable concern may exist. IF UNSURE – CHECK!

1. Non-motorized Watercraft Activities: including but not limited to the following:

a. Sailing
