A virtual homeschooling cooperative for families with kids K-12 to connect and share interests through workshops, park days, community service, trips, tours and more.
HOW TO POST:
Please note that when you post a new event, it may take up to 24 hours for your event to be announced to other members with you designated as the event "host." Once you are designated the host and your Meetup event is official, you can add an RSVP limit to your post. (Meetup sets up the site this way, so that the site "organizers" have 24 hours to delete any inappropriate posts.)
Fortunately, for those of you who post frequently, you can be added as event organizers, so that you can edit your event RSVP limit immediately and announce it to the group without waiting to be designated a host.
Members should charge no more than the actual cost of admission (e.g., museum entrance, class/material fees, or theater tickets). If you are advertising a paid series of classes, please only post the first meeting date, so that all members aren't receiving reminders every week in their inboxes.
Please note that we don't currently have a working Paypal account for the auto-pay option, so please select "offline" as the payment option and include your Paypal email address in your description of the trip (or make other arrangements for payment). (You will not receive money if you check the Paypal option, as it is not currently linked to a Paypal account!)
After you host an event please take the time to make a note of attendance by selecting "Tools" and "Edit attendance" from the drop-down menu on the right-hand side of your event's page.
HOW TO RSVP:
When you RSVP, please remember to add the TOTAL number of guests you will be bringing. If you don't do so, you may not have the necessary number of spots needed to attend. To add guests, select "Change RSVP" (green button) to add your guests.
Please read before you join! By joining the group, you agree to the following:
In order to remain a member, a member must ATTEND AT LEAST ONE MEETUP within three months of joining and thereafter post and attend at least one event annually.
This is a cooperative, member-run (unmoderated) group. The group "owners/organizers" are such in name only--we will try to keep the Meetup group online for members to use (or will offer to turn over the account to another member if we cannot do so), but will neither attend all events nor know the details of all of them, so please email the event "host" if you have a question about a posted event.
Everyone knows that plans change, but PLEASE remember to update your RSVP if you can no longer attend a Meetup, giving enough time for the people on the waiting list to take your spot. Members who consistently fail to communicate about a change in plans may be removed from the group.
Members should be considerate of other members and be responsible for his/her families' behavior and safety. Please do not engage in harassment, flaming, or other aggressive behavior in-person or on-line. This is a virtual group with open membership--anyone on the Internet can join. Please use common sense when participating, as you would do in other online communities, and don't send out personal information (such as your address or phone number, for example) to members you do not know.
