ATTENDANCE

Good attendance is imperative, as best results are accomplished when a student attends class on a regular basis. Please make every effort to have your child at every class on time.

MAKE-UPS

Make-up classes are available for missed classes or classes missed due to weather. No tuition deduction or refunds are available for missed classes, nor is monthly tuition transferable. Please see the schedule for a comparable class.  During COVID times, you must schedule this with the front desk so we make sure we have room.

SNOW OR BAD WEATHER

The studio will not necessarily close for snow days regardless if area schools are closed. Closings will be sent out via e-mail within one hour of the scheduled class, posted on our Facebook account and a message will be left on the phone at the studio. You are entitled to a makeup if we close the studio due to weather.
