Moon bounce plan hits liability roadblock

By Julie Barzilay

The Prefect Council’s plan to provide a moon bounce for “beach day” at break on April 29 hit a liability roadblock preventing students from partaking of the bouncing fun. Regardless, the Prefects secured Jamba Juice, plastic leis and beach music.

The moon bounce company,, previously agreed to sign “extra liability,” which the Prefect Council interpreted as meaning that the company would pay if any students sustained injuries. However, Chaplain Father J. Young read over the paperwork upon arrival and saw the contract secured extra coverage if the moon bounce was damaged, not the individuals using it. Due to this misunderstanding, the moon bounce had to be turned away.
