Policies and Procedures: Please be mindful of the health and safety of our home and the other students.
All session scheduling is handled personally by Dr. Corn. Each student has a set and consistant weekly time slot on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.
It does not vary unless there are extreme circumstances and are approved or initiated by Dr. Corn. If possible, adults and virtual/home-schooled children are encouraged to utilize the earlier hours before 3:30pm so as to leave the afteronoon session times available for those in the public school system and adults with only after work hours available. Please respect our home.... No food or drink should be brought into our home.
Missed sessions are NOT made up. Understanding that, there are exceptional circumstances that do arise. The rare option of rescheduling is solely at the discretion of the instructor. If you know in advance of a session time that will be missed, it is appreciated if you make that date known to Dr. Corn. If for some reason your instructor finds it necessary to cancel your session timedue to illness or emergency, your pre-paid session payment will be advanced to the next open 5th week session time.
