If the issue is on our end, we will work to provide a solution (i.e. a make-up live-online class). If the issue is on your end with your internet connection, we are unable to reimburse you for a lost connection during a live-online class. Most sessions, however, are recorded so that you can view live-online classes at a later date if you missed the session due to lost internet connection.

Disrespectful or aggressive behaviour may lead to the removal of a participant from a program. Instructors will review the etiquette and expectations before beginning live-online sessions.

We ensure a safe place for students to connect via Google Classroom and Zoom. Google Classroom is a secure platform that most public school boards in the area have been using to introduce students to distance learning over the past several months. Classes, workshops or summers camp using Zoom for live sessions are secure and private. At all times you will be interacting with multiple other patrons and at least one instructor in live-online sessions.

MAKE-UP CLASSES

In the event that a class within a program is cancelled (i.e. weather, untimely facility closure, instructor schedule or other) a make-up class will be scheduled. You will be notified via telephone or e-mail of the make-up class. No refunds will be provided to participants who are not able to make the scheduled make-up class.
