Things you need to know:

Pre-registration is required for most Salem Hospital classes. We sometimes have to cancel classes because there aren't enough people registered. Please don't wait until the last minute to register - you may find the class has been cancelled!

Assistance - Do you, or anyone who may be coming with you, need any special arrangements? (Examples: language interpreter, hearing assistance, mobility issues).  Please let us know when you register for the class, and at least 24 hours in advance so we can make arrangements for you. Thank you. [Espanol: ¿El participante, o cualquier persona que pueda acompañarlos, tienen todas las necesidades que requieren arreglos especiales? (Ejemplos: intérprete de lenguaje, audición, problemas de movilidad) Por favor, háganos saber por lo menos 24 horas de antelación para que podamos hacer los arreglos necesarios.]

Bad weather - We generally follow the Salem-Keizer School District. If Salem-Keizer Schools close due to weather, most likely any CHEC classes that day will be canceled. If you're not sure, please call 503-814-2432 to find out. But no matter what, if you don't feel safe driving, please stay home: we'd rather have you miss a class than risk hazardous roads and sidewalks!

Cancellation - If Salem Health cancels a class, a full refund or a class transfer will be issued.

Withdrawal - If you notify us at least 7 days before the start of a class or session that you can't attend, we will give you a full refund.

Medical Refund - A full refund will be issued if an illness or injury causes you to miss a class or part of a class. A note from your physician may be needed to get a medical refund.

Refund checks will be mailed, which takes about 3 weeks. Cash refunds are not available.
