Students may attend another class location, if available.  If a parent would like to attend a particular class as a makeup class, they must notify the teacher in advance.  Parents are encouraged to notify their teacher in advance if they will be absent for an upcoming class, so that all materials are on hand for the student.

If a parent or child must cancel enrollment for circumstances outside of their control:

1. A two (2) week notice is required for full month refunds.

Weather:

In the event of inclement weather, parents will be contacted with pertinent information via email, phone, or text messaging.
