With your child’s best interest in mind and to provide the best learning environment, we ask that all parents refrain from entering the teaching area during classes unless otherwise noted in the class description. In addition, it is your responsibility to take your child to class and sign them in. DO NOT DROP YOUR CHILD OFF AT THE FRONT ENTRANCE. Our instructors will supervise your child while in class; however, it is your responsibility to supervise your child while out of the classroom (hallways, restrooms, etc). This is for your child’s protection as we have several other programs going on each day and several people walking the halls for exercise. We do not provide hallway supervision for your child. Here are our policies:
Pre-School Children (ages 2-5) - Parents must be immediately available for their child at all times (you must remain in the Center while your child is in class).
Children 6-9 - You must drop off your child to class and sign them in. It is highly recommended that you stay in the Center and/or have a responsible adult be in the center to supervise your child when out of the classroom (restroom breaks, breaks in between classes, etc).
Children 10 & Up - For safety reasons, is highly recommended that you drop off your child at class and stay in the Center for the duration of class. Dropping your child off (and picking up your child after class) gives you the opportunity to talk to your child’s instructor. For the benefit and safety of your child, we respectfully ask that you adhere to these policies. Failure to comply may result in the removal of your child from our program.
The Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel any activity due to lack of enrollment, inclement weather, or cause beyond our control. Every effort will be made to contact the participants in advance to schedule a makeup date and time.
Enrollment and/or participation in Recreation Department sponsored programs and events authorizes the Ypsilanti Township, its departments, employees, and contractors to take photos and videos of you and your dependents for use in future brochures, flyers, documents, displays, in other Township publications, on the Township website, and social
networking websites. The Township will not sell or authorize others to use such photographs for commercial purposes, and will not use them upon written notice from the participant for themselves and/or their dependents.
