Absence & Withdraw Policies (private lessons)

CMC Lesson Attendance Policy
ATTENDANCE POLICY - CMC Private Lesson Program (rev. Aug., 2015)
Regular attendance is important - lessons should not be missed except in unavoidable circumstances. Excused absences require at least two weeks advance written notice using CMC's Missed Lesson form (except for one sick absence per term with prior verbal notice), and may be credited or made up at CMC's discretion. See the current CMC catalog for full details. NOTE: A student may be dropped from the program for more than two unexcused absences per term, three absences in a row, or four absences of any type during a term. Extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

NEW STARTING SUMMER 2019: excused absence only for illness (one sick absence per term with prior verbal notice).

CMC Lesson Withdraw Policy
WITHDRAWAL POLICY: PRIVATE LESSONS - Once confirmed, the lesson time is reserved for your child through all three school-year terms (fall, winter, and spring, ending mid-June). Withdraws from lessons with less than one week notice, including withdraws before the start of any term, result in additional fees based on a proration of lesson fees at the time of notification. This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy. See catalog for full policy.
