We’re so sorry! We’re a real organization, and that means we have a lot of legalese that we need to make available to you. Here are the highlights:
COVID-19 is not something we can control. Participation in Cantus Youth Choirs is at your own risk! We cannot guarantee you won’t be infected. You accept all responsibility and agree to follow all indicated safety protocols.
No refunds. Once you register, you’re on the hook. So please make sure you’re ready to join. The Cantus Board can issue refunds in extreme cases.
You can miss 3 rehearsals. We don’t need to know why you missed, just limit absences to 3 … unless you’re sick. And if you’re sick, stay home and get better.
Videos and photos belong to Cantus. You give us permission to take photos and videos of your child at Cantus events and use them to promote Cantus. You will not be compensated for this.
We’ll do our best to save your kid if there’s an emergency. We’re going to call 911 and get medical care for your child. We won’t pay for any of the bills.
We collect information. Your email address, credit card information, and children’s names are safe. We don’t sell your information to anyone. And you can unsubscribe from our communication channels at any time (you won’t have any clue of what’s going on, but you could).
