Please keep in mind that Splash! Chicago serves to protect the well-being of our high school students, parents, schools and the University of Chicago. Given our responsibility to these entities, occasionally we may ask teachers to modify their classes. Topics that raise concerns include those that may inadvertently promote sex, violence, drug use, etc. Please don’t hesitate to notify us if you think your class may push the boundaries of what is traditionally acceptable of minors to learn. We look forward to working with you!
