Our Policies
Attendance and Records

Absences and Vacations

We expect students to attend each class of a trimester. Consistent attendance is important for mastering the concepts presented in class.

If your child has to miss a class, please let the teacher know by email or phone. The teacher will let you know how to make up for the missed class: most times, there are other sections of the same class your student can attend the same week instead. In addition, the teacher will know to email you the class summary and homework.

Student Records

It is very important that all the emergency contact information is kept up to date and correct. Please inform us immediately of any changes. We need to keep your information current.

Sick students

In case of a serious accident or sudden illness requiring immediate medical attention, the following procedures will be followed.

  • A phone call to 911 might be made.
  • The child's parents (or emergency contacts) are called.

If a student feels unwell during class, the teacher might contact a parent by phone.

Restricted Items
We ask that students do not bring snacks containing peanuts.
