MCC/OFC Dance Disclaimer
This disclaimer would serve as a notice to all parents of children attending MCC Youth Events 5th & 6th grade dances (Monster Mash, Snow Ball, Lusu, Yule Ball) and all Old Firehouse Friday Night Activities.
MCC/OFC activities have music and volume levels suitable to the purpose prescribed by the nature of the program. Precautionary measures such as decibel readers, designated quiet locations, and ear plugs have been put in place to mitigate prolonged exposure. However, there are factors outside of our control, such as screaming children, which can lead to potentially damaging decibel levels. MCC staff and administration HIGHLY recommend that parents encourage their children to wear the available earplugs while attending these programs to protect their hearing.
