What happens if I’m sick or need to cancel my in-person lesson?
Thank you for staying home if you are sick 🙂 ! Please inform your teacher directly if you need to cancel a lesson. We all need to be especially cautious and flexible during this time so here are some options for you:
If you are canceling with less than 24 hours’ notice
- Have an online lesson instead of in-person during your regular lesson time if your teacher is able to. All of our teachers are equipped to teach online but please do contact them directly as soon as possible.
If you are canceling with at least 24 hours’ notice:
- Reschedule the lesson with your teacher to a later time when all symptoms are cleared and/or you have finished quarantining. You are eligible for up to four lessons per year to reschedule – please visit our website for more information: https://ontheoffbeat.ca/rates-policies/
- Have an online lesson instead of in-person during your regular lesson time if your teacher is able to. All of our teachers are equipped to teach online but please be sure to contact them directly and give them at least 24 hours’ notice.
- Please note that if another lockdown occurs we will automatically resort to online lessons keeping the same schedule. Students will still be required to give four weeks’ notice if they want to quit. The remaining payments for classes and after-school programs will be credited to the student’s account and can be used in the future.
