Change of Address, Email & Phone Numbers Please notify VVGYM of a change in address, email or phone number, by filling out a Change of Information Form, at the front desk. It is extremely important to receive updates of person contact information. Having current phone and cell numbers is crucial in case of an emergency.
Attendance/Absences: Regular attendance is necessary to maintain progress in class. If a student must miss a class, please call in advance to schedule the make-up class, which should be taken within 2 weeks of the absence. Otherwise, missed classes are lost classes and cannot be made up. Calling ahead when possible allows another child to take that slot for a make lesson.
There are no refunds for missed classes. Only makeup classes can be scheduled, and must be done so within the stated time frame.
Drop Off/ Pick Up Procedures: Please be prompt when picking dropping off or picking up your child. Students are not to be left at the studio for excessive time periods before or after their classes. Parents with students under the age of 4 should remain in the studio during classes. All students are to stay inside the building until their ride has arrived.
Classroom Behavior: Students are expected to be respectful and attentive in class to teachers and their fellow classmates. Polite behavior and good manners should be displayed throughout the class. The teacher will encourage the class to work together toward a common goal. Good attitude, good attendance and practice at home are expected from each student. VVGYM is a private gym and reserves the right to dismiss any student who disregards VVGYM policies including but not limited to inappropriate behavior such as violent tendencies, foul language and physical abuse towards others.
Class Observation: To keep distractions to a minimum, we ask parents to view their students progress from the viewing room. Students can sometimes feel additional pressure and stress to perform when trying to please a parent and we strive to keep those feelings to a minimum. We want them to feel confident yet comfortable as they are learning the sport. Besides, there are snacks and drinks in the observation room !
Discontinuing and Withdrawal: Withdrawals from class must be submitted in writing, by filling out a withdrawal form before the 15th of the preceding month to avoid any additional tuition costs posted to the account. Refunds, credits, or transfers will not be issued. Withdrawal must be done in person at the front desk, and will not be accepted over the phone or with a teacher. If your child stops coming to class, but you have not officially withdrawn, you are still liable for tuition until you officially withdraw.
- Tuition is due on the 1st of the month.
- There is a $25 Charge for all returned checks.
- No credit is given for absences or vacations. Payment is expected for all classes/sessions, including classes missed due to illness, school function or discontinuation of class.
