The following information is intended to answer some of the questions you may have about tuition, absences, attire, and holidays. Please note the important dates at the bottom of the page. Please contact us with any additional questions.
NO INVOICES/STATEMENTS SENT:
You will receive a statement only if your account is past due. Any account that becomes 15 days past due will be notified by email or phone call. In the event an account becomes 30 days past due, the past due balance will be charged to the credit card on file provided upon enrollment. If you would like to set up an automatic draft plan with a credit or debit card, please contact the front desk personnel. For your convenience, you may prepay your annual tuition, plus fees, and receive one month’s tuition free!
We do not make up or pro-rate tuition for days missed due to inclement weather. We will notify you of any weather-related closings via email and social media.
ABSENCES / MAKE-UP CLASSES:
Attendance is imperative! Absences and tardiness can have a negative effect on the entire class. Classes missed for illness, family emergency, etc. may be made up in an age appropriate class within 30 days of the absence. It is the responsibility of the parent to notify the front desk 24 hours prior to a make-up class. Advance notice is required to allow our staff to find the correct make-up class for your student. Make-up classes will not be scheduled after April 1st.
Perfect Attendance certificates are awarded only for attendance in your regularly scheduled class. Make-up classes do not count towards a student’s perfect attendance.
Dance recitals are held in May at Patriot Hall. All 45-minute dance classes will perform one routine & be included in the finale bows. All 1-hour classes will perform two routines. Recital tickets will be available the first week of May. All accounts must be current to receive tickets. Tickets can be purchased at Miss Libby’s Wesmark office or at the box office of Patriot Hall 1 hour prior to the performance.
We love to have your gymnast show off the skills they have worked hard to achieve! Miss Libby’s Gymnastics Center is transported to an alternate location with ample seating and plenty of space to include all gymnastics elements! The date of the Gymnastics Expo is usually the last weekend of May or the 1st weekend of June, and traditionally takes place at Nettles Gymnasium of USC-Sumter.
