     must bearranged by appointment and then only if regular classes are not full.  Make-ups must be attended within four weeks of the missed class.  For vacation 

      weeks, (Spring Break, July 4th week, and two weeks at Christmas) which are not part of our sessions, NO make-up classes are given.
3.    If for any reason you wish to switch your child’s day or time, this must also go through the front desk.  Once, again, not all classes have room for additional 

      students.  Your child must attend the class he/she is signed up for.  Please do not bring a student to class is he/she is sick.  Call the office and we will gladly 

      reschedule a time when he/she is feeling better.

       minutes, the class will be cancelled and make-ups will need to be scheduled.
