Studio Policies

  • At your time of enrollment, you will receive an email with a full studio handbook, containing all studio policies, detailed information, and more. This is also available to download through our Parent Portal after enrollment, should the email be lost or deleted.

General Policies

It is our promise to respond to all inquiries - and we will never leave a question unanswered. Our friendly staff can be contacted at 419-210-4153 by text message or phone call.

 

  • We hold a “Closed Practice” policy at EDC. All parents have the option of waiting in the main lobby or simply dropping off and picking up your student. This closed practice policy is to eliminate all distractions and interruptions – we do not allow parents or visitors in the classrooms during class, with the exception of Parent Observation Weeks.

  • Weather Cancellation policy remains as follows: classes will NOT automatically cancel when Galion City Schools close. If classes are cancelled due to weather, email communication will be sent, as well as posting on our Facebook Page and in our private BAND group.

  • For the convenience of both our staff and our families, our primary means of communication is via email. You will receive regular newsletters and important information via email after enrollment, so please ensure you have provided us with an up-to-date email address that is regularly checked.
