Class Policies

Changing/Dropping a Class

  • First Week of Class — Full refund is available only if dropping the class or switching to another class does not take the class below its pre-stated minimum number of students.
  • Second Week of Class — Full refund is still available, per the above conditions, however, you must notify the registrar of your intent to drop the class before you leave co-op.
  • Third Week of Class and weeks following — You may still drop the class, however, at this point, we will be unable to refund your money or apply your money towards another class.
  • All requests must be done through this form: Class Change Request

Please understand that our Curriculum Coordinator works diligently with our teachers to come up with a class size that is small enough for your children to learn, yet large enough to be worth the teacher’s time to teach. Many of our contracted teachers make their lively-hood teaching these classes, and we need to respect the contract we have with them.

Attendance Policy

In an effort to keep our families as healthy as possible, please keep your children home if they have any apparent signs of illness. There is no make-up policy or monetary refund for missed classes. In classes requiring homework, it is the responsibility of the parent or student to obtain missed lessons.

Dress Code

  • Shorts mustn’t be shorter than extended fingertips down at the side.
  • Dress/Skirt length mustn’t be shorter than 4 inches above knee top.
  • Tops must cover midriff, this includes the action of raising arms.
  • Unacceptable clothing: strapless, backless dresses or tops, anything sheer and low cut. Sleeveless tops must cover bra straps.
  • Undergarments covered at all times.
  • No shirts depicting crude slogans, words, or pictures.

Sickness Policy

The following is a list of guidelines that we ask you observe to keep us all safe. Please keep your child home with any of the following symptoms and/or illnesses:

  • Fever greater than 100°
  • Vomiting within the last 36 hours
  • Runny nose (color other than clear)
  • Questionable rashes
  • Croup
  • Diarrhea
  • Impetigo
  • Active Chicken Pox
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)

If your child is being treated with antibiotics, he/she should be on the medication for at least 24 hours before c coming to Co-Op. We realize that some symptoms hang on long after the child is no longer contagious. Please let us know if your child has a continually-clear runny nose or non-contagious rash due to allergies. If your child is sick, please err on the side of caution and let us know you won’t be attending. Remember, some of our families do not have health insurance and it is our desire to not add the extra burden of a sick child if it can be prevented. We want to keep all of our families healthy and happy. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Building Policy

Please do not contact the church offices regarding co-op issues. IMPACT operates independently from the church. We use their facilities, but we have no affiliation with them.

  • Use the designated entrances only and ask your children to refrain from running or shouting while in the building. Remember, the church staff is working while we are on the premises and we need to respect that.
  • Out of respect for the church property, please ask your children not to climb in the trees or on the handrails outside.
  • Additionally, scooters, skateboard, roller skates, etc, should not be used in the building, on the stairs or in the courtyard area outside the main entrance.
  • Food and drinks need to be consumed in the kitchen or hospitality area. Water bottles are allowed in the gym and classrooms.
  • Vending machines, refrigerators, and other church appliances should not be used by co-op attendees without prior approval from a Board Member.
  • The church has requested that we not park in the first row of parking spots adjacent to the sidewalk/grassy area. These spots are to be reserved for church business only.
  • Please observe a modest dress code when attending co-op. No tank-tops, short shorts, etc. Hats/caps may be worn in the building; however, all teachers have the right to ask students to remove their hat/cap while in class.
  • While we have a clean-up committee, please be helpful by cleaning up after yourself and your children. Our goal is to leave the building in better condition than it was when we arrived.
