As a co-op, we all need to help with set-up/clean-up.  All members will be scheduled for one of the 3 ten week sessions.  Please check what you would prefer. If it doesn't matter to you, then check I Am Flexible. If we do not have enough people for both clean-up and set-up then we will assign families. 

If you teach 2 or more hours, you are exempt. (remember: co-teaching only gives you 1/2 class credit. For example: You would need to teach a class alone and co-teach 2 classes to be exempt)  If you have a nursing baby under a year old, you are exempt for that year. 

Set-up will begin at 8:45 am and will take about 1/2 hour.  Clean-up will begin immediately after co-ops ends and will last no more than an hour. 
 
If you feel that you should be exempt from this please check exempt and explain below.  Thank you.
