Missed Classes: If you are unable to attend a class due to illness or vacation, you may come to another class if it is offered in another location, or visit our family music class on Tuesday at 6:00pm at Christ First United Methodist. Please call Danica Olson 716-224-2765 to let her know you are coming. If another class is not an option, you may come to our family music night class between sessions.
Sick Policy: If your child has a fever or has had a fever within the last 24 hours, please do not bring him/her to music class. Also, if your child has an active cold - runny nose, sneezing or coughing, please do not bring her/him to music class. Of course, if you know your child is allergic or asthmatic, please do not hesitate to bring them just because they may mimic some of the same symptoms as a cold.
A Helpful Note: Food, toys or other "distractions" often cause problems rather than provide comfort when brought into music class. Since another child might want your child’s drink or stuffed animal, it is often easier to leave those things at home or in the car.
If public school is closed due to bad weather, we will also be closed. Every attempt will be made to make up missed classes. If public school is operating on a delayed schedule, we will be open and classes will run on their regular schedule. School closings can be confirmed on www.se933.com; click on closings and cancellations. WJTN will be notified in case of a snow day.
Understand that all children learn at different rates and in different ways. Some children will be quiet in class, others will be active. Some children will do everything perfectly at home, but not in class. As a parent, you know that every child is unique, so check your comparisons at the door and let the music work it's magic!
Remember that you are your child's first teacher. If you sing, dance, participate, then your child is much more likely to do the same. Try to limit your comments in class to your observations of the children. If you are visiting with a friend, chances are that your child is hearing you and not the music.
- Please try to be on time.
- Dress for "moving and dancing!"
- Have fun experiencing the musical time together with your child!
