  • A teacher may cancel one lesson per semester due to illness or for professional development per semester without a make-up.

Make-up lessons may be given in a master class format at the end of the semester if the teacher feels it would be benefit the student.

Teachers are not required to give more than two make-up lessons for lessons canceled by the student.

Make-up lessons MUST BE taken during the current and WILL NOT be carried over into the next semester.
