Occasionally the Communications and Creative Services Office takes photographs of students
in College for Kids classes. The photographs are used in the college's publications, brochures and website. They may
also appear on social media sites. If you object to having a photograph of your child taken and/or used in this manner,
please contact Community and Professional Programs at (217) 234-5219 prior to the first meeting of your child's class.
