Participants understand and agree that they may be photographed and/or videotaped for the promotion of City of Mesa archives and for use in publicity materials. I understand that there are risks of physical injury to the participant(s). Considering all possible risks, on behalf of the participant(s) and myself, I voluntarily waive, release, discharge, and hold harmless the City of Mesa, its employees, supervisors, appointed officials, agents representatives and volunteers from all claims for all injuries to participant(s), no matter how severe. Furthermore, I give consent for emergency medical treatment to the participant(s), no matter how severe.

Mesa or its employees, supervisors, appointed officials, agents, representatives and volunteers. Please Note: We require that parents or guardians drop off children ages 3 to 10 at the classroom door and pick their child up at the door promptly at the conclusion of class. If you are late picking up your child, we have instituted a fee structure: 5-14 minutes late: $5 | 15-24 minutes late: $10 | 25-30 minutes late: $20. Late fee must be paid at the time of pick up. The child will not be allowed to return to class until the fee is paid.
The City of Mesa reserves the right to dismiss a student from the program for inappropriate conduct if necessary. This includes unsafe use of equipment, materials or supplies. Dismissal/permanent removal is at the discretion of faculty.
Receipts will be emailed or mailed to you to confirm your enrollment. If you are traveling here from out of state, we strongly recommend purchasing REFUNDABLE AIRFARE in the event a class is canceled.
