If we are required to cancel his/her 1st Choice class – due to lack of enrollment - then your child/ren will automatically be placed into their 2nd Choice class.

 

Refunds

Refunds will only be made if a class is cancelled due to lack of enrollment, and if we are unable to place your child/ren into his/her 2nd Choice Class.   Choose your classes carefully since there will be no other opportunity for a refund. No refunds will be given for student illness, student withdrawal for personal reason, expulsion due to behavior problems, or class cancellation due to inclement weather.

School Closing – There will be no classes on scheduled holidays, half days or days on which school has been closed because of inclement weather.
