Contact Information for Sick/Absent Days
If a child does not attend school because they are ill, they may not attend A!A programming on that same day. If your child is sick or absent for a class during after-school, please give us a call at 307.733.6379 ext. 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If students do not get off the Activity Bus or show up for class and we are not notified ahead of time, we will assume that the student is not coming to class. if you are running late for pick-up, you can inform us by calling the number above.
Art Association Prorating Policy
We only prorate the cost of a class for multi-weekl classes or after-school programs when a participant enrolls after the start date of the class/program. We do not prorate for summer programs as they are a condensed week-long program. We do not offer single-day enrollments for camps or multi-week programs.
The A!A reserves the right to provide a qualified substitute instructor for any and all classes.
Class Theme and Media Focus
Classes will adhere to the theme and media as closely as possible.
The A!A may use photos taken during classes, workshops and camps for promotional materials.
