3/25/20 COVID-19 Response Update 
At a Special Meeting of the McLean Community Center (MCC) Governing Board today, the Board unanimously voted to cancel all Center-sponsored activities in the months of April and May, including McLean Day 2020. The action came in response to the recommendations of MCC Executive Director George Sachs, who cited the ongoing Centers for Disease Control and Fairfax County Health Department guidelines concerning large gatherings. McLean Day, the center’s largest event, typically draws approximately 10,000 participants.

Absentee voting for the MCC 2020 Governing Board Election, currently underway, will continue through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13. The McLean Day in-person voting, stipulated in the Center’s Memorandum of Understanding, will be held at MCC, 1234 Ingleside Ave., as scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 16. Questions? Please call the Center at 703-790-0123, TTY: 711.

A Resource for the McLean Community
Want to help others or need help yourself? The Fairfax County Community Covid Aid Project is a charity started at McLean High School to connect volunteers with those in need in our community during this difficult time. The organization runs a database where McLean residents can access services, like grocery shopping and online tutoring, by requesting help from a group of dedicated volunteers. All volunteers are Fairfax County residents, who have signed up through the website, https://www.fairfaxcountycovidaid.org.

Class Refund Policy

The Center issues refunds when the Center cancels a class or activity. The Center also issues refunds when the Center changes a class or an activity and the change makes it impossible for the patron to continue with the class. Please note, the Center cancels a class one week prior to the start date if the class does not meet minimum enrollment.

All refund requests must be submitted in writing to registrar@mcleancenter.org. Refunds will be made according to the type of payment received; if the fee is paid by check, a refund check will be issued by Fairfax County within four (4) to six (6) weeks of the date on which the request is received.

Once a class, camp or activity is in session, refunds may be granted only for medical reasons or for extenuating circumstances as determined by the General Programs Director and the Registrar. Medical requests must be accompanied by a doctor’s note (verification).

Class/Activity Refunds
Patrons who submit refund requests 14 days or more before the start date of a class or activity, will be granted a refund, minus a $25 processing fee. Refunds requested less than 14 days before the start date of the class or activity will not be granted.
