Cancellations & Missed Lessons
Parents are required to give a notice within 24 hours if your child is sick or cannot attend the

However, if no notice, or not enough notice is given, then the missed lesson will need to be paid for, due to
the time, effort and loss of income to the business. Likewise, I will contact parents if I cannot make my
commitment to tutoring for any reason, giving notice as soon as possible.

arrangements can be made.
