  • Holiday closures:
    • Labor Day
    • Thanksgiving
    • Christmas through New Years
    • Centerville Schools Spring Break
  • Snow Day Policy:
    • Single snow day cancellation will most likely not be made up and depends on the group’s schedule that night.  If a competition or performance is coming up, I will try to work the lesson in; monthly payment will remain the same.  I’ve tried in the past to make up snow days and those student often cannot attend the make up session.  If there are multiple snow day cancellations, I will try to make up at least one class.  Make up days may have to be on Saturday or Sunday since we have a full schedule during the week.
    • Just because school closes in the morning does not mean I cancel evening lessons.  Please check!
    • I really do not cancel very often and wait until after 2:00 pm to make the final decision.  By that time it usually has cleared off enough to have lessons.  Afternoon classes are sometimes the problem.
    • I will try to e-mail or call (if I do not have an e-mail address) everyone.
    • Make sure I have an e-mail address!
