All students will receive 36 weeks of instruction during the 2022-2023 School Year, no matter what day of the week their lesson or class may fall on. 

  • Exception 1 is Kindemusik Level 5 classes that have 30 classes per year, with the 30th class being their graduation/year-end celebrations.
  • Exception 2 is Mondays and Fridays due to holidays. They will receive 35.5 weeks of instruction, and the additional 0.5 week (if applicable) will be scheduled during the Make-Up Days outlined below


Make-Up Days have been scheduled at three distinct times throughout the year to accommodate teachers with travelling needs due to performances, student absences, and other occurrences. When lessons or classes are cancelled, a plan will be communicated that falls during scheduled Make-Up Days and families will be instructed to sign up for a make-up lesson or class during those times. 


Snow Days will move to a virtual format to avoid the need to take up scheduled makeup days and to keep the schedule and learning opportunities consistent. Families should prepare a virtual space at home to prepare for a snow day class or lesson.
