WCHE Activity Participation Policy
Unless otherwise advertised, the majority of WCHE activities are open to WCHE members only. Some special activities are open to visitors interested in home education.
- Extended family members (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.) are always welcome to attend our educational fairs, performances and awards ceremonies.
- School-aged children who have siblings participating with WCHE, but are not currently home schooled are welcome to participate in our activities.
- For the safety and protection of all children, WCHE activities are not “drop-off” activities. Parents are expected to supervise their children at all activities unless previous arrangements have been made with another parent to be responsible for them.
- Children must be picked up promptly following all activities where they have been left under another adult’s supervision.
WCHE Activity Registration Policy
Listed below is WCHE's policy regarding the registration for activities, such as field trips:
- Deadlines for events, field trips, and activities that require pre-payment will be observed.
- If payment or a deposit is required, it must be paid in full before the reservation is considered complete.
- If circumstances prevent your family from attending an event, refunds are not guaranteed but will be made if possible. You must contact the event coordinator prior to the event regarding any cancellations. Please note that there will be no refunds for activities dropped after the activity has begun, and there are no refunds for membership.
- Participants should arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled event time. This is especially important for field trips that require group admittance.
WCHE Behavior Guidelines
The general guidelines for WCHE events are listed below:
- All attendees (visitors and participants) are expected to demonstrate cooperation, courtesy, and respect for hosts, instructors, officials, adults, and each other.
- Inappropriate subject matter; gestures and/or language that is abusive, crude, or obscene; and verbal or physical attacks will not be tolerated. Such behavior may be cause for expulsion from the event and/or possibly WCHE.
- Attendees should dress appropriately, neatly, and modestly, according to weather conditions and type of event.
