Injuries, Illness and Allergies
It is expected that parents communicate at the time of registration any allergy or medical concerns that are pertinent to the Faculty & Staff of North Ballet Academy to know in order to continue providing a safe and enriching environment for all students. Allergy and medical concerns MUST be documented within the Student's Account immediately. North Ballet advises participants consult a physician before beginning any physical activity.
Students are eligible to make up any classes due to injury, illness or absence. Make-ups must be completed within the same month at the student's level or the level immediately below. No refund or credit is given for missed classes. At the discretion of the Academy Director, a credit toward the next tuition payment will only be issued in the case of extreme illness or injury which prevents the student from returning to class for an extended period of time. We respectfully expect that parents, not students, keep the Program Director informed, in writing and/or parent-Director conference, of any health conditions that may affect attendance and/or dance participation at the onset of the injury. In order for a consideration of tuition credit to occur, a medical letter must be submitted to the Director within two weeks of the onset of the injury. The letter must state the dates of injury onset, general plan for treatment, and how the injury will affect class participation. It is essential that the Instructor and Directors of North Ballet Academy be informed of injuries in order to continue to work with parents and students in providing safe ballet instruction to students who are experiencing an injury. It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to provide written documentation of any injury affecting class participation, this written document must then be agreed upon and signed by parent(s) and Program Director. No exceptions are made to this policy.
In the event of weather cancellations, students may attend a make-up class within one month of the date of weather cancellation. Students may attend a make up class at or below the student's current level of study. Weather cancellations will be announced on the NorthBallet.com website, as well as an email being sent to all registered families, and a Facebook post. Please check these posting areas in the event of questionable weather conditions.
Should a student decide to withdraw from classes, the front desk must be notified, in writing, a minimum of 30 days prior to the first of the following month. Tuition will be billed as scheduled during the 30 day withdrawal period. All outstanding balances are due at the time of withdrawal. No exceptions are made to this policy. During the 30 day withdrawal period, we invite and encourage students to attend any and all classes that they are eligible to participate in.
