Cancellation and Refund Policy

After-School Aviators programs may be cancelled at the parents’ request 7 or more days in advance of the program start date.  A $35 processing fee will be deducted from the refund.

Should a child’s school resume in-person instruction prior to the scheduled end date of a published After-School Aviators session, the child may withdraw from After-School aviators effective the date that instruction resumes and a pro-rated refund issued for each day of the program which the child is unable to attend as a result of the change in school schedule.

In the event that future changes to state or county health orders specific to child care or day camp operations preclude the safe operation of the After-School Aviators session, the session(s) will be cancelled by the Hiller Aviation Museum and a full refund issued.

Students will be provided with a variety of games and activities along with a daily self-guided aviation project during the extended check-in period (1:30 PM – 3:00 PM daily,  2:00 PM – 3:00 PM starting October 5).  Students who wish to complete school work during this time should bring all necessary supplies and devices needed for their assignments.  WiFi access will be provided to facilitate completion of schoolwork – please bring a headset if your child may need to join group calls or watch livestreamed or pre-recorded content.  Please label all books, devices and other supplies with the child’s name.  The Hiller Aviation Museum is not responsible for lost or damaged items.

After-School Aviators and COVID-19

Each After-School Aviators session is conducted in compliance with San Mateo County Health Order c19-11 issued June 17, 2020, and state orders specific to child care programs and day camps issued on July 17 and 29, respectively.  Children in each group and their instructional staff will remain separated from other groups throughout the duration of each session, and heightened cleaning and disinfecting protocols will be in place for all areas used during the program.

Parents are required to self-certify the absence of COVID-19 symptoms in their child at check-in daily.  These symptoms include, but are not limited to, fever over 100.4 degrees, coughing, and shortness of breath.  Children and parents should stay home if ill and should not enter the Hiller Aviation Museum.

All participants must bring and wear a face covering as required by state health orders, and are encouraged to bring a personal water bottle and (if desired) an afternoon snack.  Single-use face coverings will be provided for students who forget to bring one.
