ATTENDANCE POLICY:

Please be advised that the number one key to learning is consistency in your child’s attendance to their classes. These policies will help your child succeed. Please also note that these policies are in place as a courtesy to our teachers. Our teachers have busy schedules and some travel a far distance and we would like to be very respectful of their time.

1. NCMAC allows four excused absences per academic year (September 1-May 31) with at least 24-hours advanced notice (more notice is recommended and appreciated). Cancellations beyond the four allowable absences will not be rescheduled and will be charged. Unscheduled make up lessons will expire 60 days from the day of absence.
2. In cases of emergencies (such as extreme illness, death in the family or car accident) when a student is unable to give advance notice, NCMAC will allow two emergency absences. Same day call is required, otherwise, it will be considered a missed lesson. Any late notice absence beyond the two emergency absences will not be made up and will be charged, regardless of circumstance. Unscheduled make up lessons will expire 60 days from the day of absence.
3. No Show / No Notice will not be considered for make ups. Please do not schedule other activities (hospital/doctor appointments, sports, etc.) on the lesson day schedule.
4. NCMAC allows 4 vacation absences which are unbilled with no make up lessons required for SUMMER BREAK ONLY (June 1 to August 31). Additional absences during long vacations will be charged and made up. Payment will be due on the 1st or prior to leaving for vacation if unable to make payment while away. Any student who misses more than the four allowable unpaid absences consecutively without making make up arrangements or paying tuition will not be guaranteed to keep their reserved lesson time slot and as it will become available to other students. 
5. Students are expected to keep their agreed schedule. NCMAC will allow only one permanent schedule change per school year. Rescheduling will be provided upon the discretion of the teacher and availability of requested schedule change. Students must have a legitimate reason for the schedule change.
6. Should a teacher need to be absent or become unavailable, make up lessons will be arranged or a substitute teacher will be provided for the student. In case of a teacher emergency (same day notice of teacher unavailability), the student may schedule a make-up lesson OR opt to be credited back tuition for the missed day. Make up lessons due to teacher absences do not expire.
7. Once make up lessons are scheduled, they can no longer be rescheduled (no make up for make ups). This includes make up lessons due to teacher absences.
8. No credits or make-up lessons will be given for students who miss any of the group, chamber, music, orchestra and art classes.
9. Students must show up to their lessons on time. Teachers are not responsible to make up for the lost time.
10. NCMAC observes the following holidays:
• Independence Day (July 4)
• Labor Day
• Thanksgiving Day & Friday After Thanksgiving
• Lessons will be rescheduled on these days.
11. NCMAC will be closed December 24 – January 1. Classes are not in session during the Holidays. Tuition will be automatically adjusted to the number of classes in session during the month of December & January. No make-up lessons needed.
