Payment and Attendance Policy for the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters
(for time slots between 3:00 and 9:00)
Make Up Lessons: Each student will get 4 make-ups/reschedules per school year calendar (Sept.-June) regardless of reason. The make-up must be scheduled during the current quarter. Other than a cancellation on our part there will be no other excused absences, credits, or make-ups given beyond the 4.
We must receive a notification of absence within 48 hours of the scheduled lesson via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or our online make-up/reschedule form.
Make-ups and reschedules must be requested here.
Religious Holidays: If you can’t make a lesson because you are celebrating a religious holiday on a day that we are open please let us know at least 48 hours in advance. This will not use your allotted make-up lesson.
BSM Cancellations: If we have to cancel lessons for any reason, we will attempt to reschedule your lesson for a different time within the same week. If your lesson cannot be rescheduled during that week, you are guaranteed a make-up lesson at a later date.
Bad Weather: In the case inclement weather we will hold all lessons on that day remotely via video on either Skype or FaceTime.
