COMMITMENT TO ATTEND
We truly expect your child to attend each and every scheduled class. Because we limit the number of children in a class we are hopeful that everyone will honor their commitment and complete their registered class(s). We ask that you call if you are going to be late or absent. Please be aware that if your child is more than 10 minutes late to class, the teacher reserves the right to ask your child observe class. This is for the safety of your child.
