CAMPS

Pre-classes & “New students” for camps and vacation weeks are always on a Monday promptly at 7:30AM.

Pre-classes are a mandatory prerequisite for classes, camps, and vacation weeks.

If a child misses the Monday mandatory pre-class due to absence, Sew Easy reserves the right to cancel the student’s remainder of the camp week. No refunds or credits will be given.  If staff is available to hold a private pre-class once camp has begun (Monday), payment of $50 will be required for this lesson.

Siblings and friends will not be able to attend pre-class at 7:30AM.  Past students are to arrive at 9:30AM

PRE-CLASS

A pre-class is a onetime private tutorial for new students enrolled in our program. We will email all new students with a pre-class date that coordinates with student’s schedule. Pre-classes for weekly Summer Camps and vacation weeks are always on a Monday promptly at 7:30 am.  Pre-classes are a mandatory prerequisite for classes, camps, and vacation weeks. Don’t worry we will work with your child’s schedule!

A pre-class will be considered a class in the event a student is absent during a session or beginning after a session has begun.

MAKE-UP CLASSES

  • Classes
    If space is available, we will offer one make-up class per session a child is enrolled. We do not roll make-up classes into new sessions. Make-ups will be offered to those who report absences PRIOR to class. For new students, a pre-class will be used as a make-up class.
  • Camps and Vacation Weeks
    There are no make-up days during camp or vacation week programs.  We will not be responsible for projects not completed due to “unreported” absences during a camp week.  We will hold on to unfinished projects until a student’s next enrollment at Sew Easy.
  • Weekly Latecomers (For private school students or special circumstances)
    If your student is tardy to class each week because of a later school release, we welcome you to come for “make-up minutes” for the time missed. Mom keeps track of missed minutes and accumulates minutes to create make-up classes. Schedule prior.
  • Pre-classes will be considered a class in the event a student is absent during a session or beginning after a session has begun.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

Sew Easy will be open for regular business hours during inclement weather. We do not follow public school closing schedules. Though we are open for business, students are not obligated to attend. Attending a regularly scheduled sewing program is at the discretion of the parents. We will contact parents via email 1.5 hours prior to a class in the event conditions warrant us to close our shop. In the event our shop is closed and class is cancelled we will not refund or hold a make-up class.

REFUNDS

Refunds will only be given up until one week prior to the start of a program.
