Terms of Use

Liability Insurance Requirement

All rentals are required to have a $2 million dollar general liability policy unless otherwise indicated.

We are aware of at least one option for event-based liability insurance:
AON Risk Solutions offers event organizers with affordable access to liability coverage when planning events. Coverage may be obtained for community events and family events as well as a wide range of sporting activities (including organized leagues and sport camps).

Halifax Independent School has no direct affiliation with AON. While group liability insurance is mandatory for all bookings, renters can contact any insurance provider to inquire about coverage that best suits their needs.

For more information about  and how to purchase this insurance option, visit halifax/ or contact AON Risk Solutions directly at 902-429-7310.
