Participation in Adult Education Program activities is at your own risk. If you are enrolling in physical fitness, sports or other physically active courses, check with your physician beforehand to make certain that these courses are appropriate. The Freeport Public School District relies on each registrant to seek medical advice as to his/her capacity to participate and will not be responsible for injuries, damages or losses.



A make-up class is only offered when a session is cancelled because of teacher illness, inclement weather or other unavoidable circumstances. The make-up class will be scheduled the week after the last regular session of the course..



Cancellation of courses that do not reach minimum enrollment takes place one week before starting date.

Registrants are notified by mail when a course is cancelled and their check is returned or credit card is not charged. Because our instructional program is self-sustaining, revenue from course fees must cover all costs. If revenue is inadequate because registration is below minimum, the Adult Education Program can cancel a course or reduce the number of sessions to enable the course to run.
