Scheduling lessons

Lessons are scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis by calling instructors directly.

Parents should notify instructors before the beginning of each trimester to arrange for continuation or termination of lessons.

Lessons are not held on vacation days, conference days or early dismissal days unless prearranged with the instructor.

Students must be under an adult’s direct supervision after school.

Gordon’s Gators and YAP programs are available before and after lessons.


Lessons can only be cancelled in the case of a student’s illness and parents should call the instructor as soon as possible to let them know.

Social events, vacations beyond those on Gordon’s calendar, medical appointments, and sports events are not valid excuses.

Students who cannot attend school for health reasons, or are sent home during the day, cannot participate in after school programs, including athletic games, lessons, or any performances.

When instructors need to be absent, they will contact families as soon as possible, and also call the school.

These lessons will be made up later in the trimester or refunded if lessons fall short of nine per trimester.

When after school programs are cancelled due to severe weather, lessons will be made up later in the trimester.
