Occasionally we have to cancel our classes because of the weather, or because of teacher sickness etc.
We do NOT automatically cancel our classes when public schools are closed. School closures are decided in the early morning, and very often conditions have changed completely by the afternoon and evening, when we hold most of our classes. Also we have students at public schools in several different counties, as well as at various private schools, and we cannot track closures at every school.
Conversely, on occasions we may have to close when public schools have been open, because conditions became worse during the day.
So please always check with us before assuming we are closed. We will announce any closures on our Facebook page and our Twitter feed, and the Twitter feed should appear in the sidebar or page footer of our website. If there is a last minute closure we will attempt to call and/or email you. You can also call our studio telephone 540-504-7263, or if there is no reply or message there try Miss Lorenza’s cell phone 540-233-0432.
When classes are canceled, students are entitled to make up classes, as explained below. We recognize that sometimes when our classes are open you may not be able to attend because of local weather or road conditions. If so, please let us know in advance if possible, according to the absences policy below.
