Policies and Guidelines

Enrollment policies and guidelines and our standard photo waiver.

All guardians and students are expected to adhere to the following policies:
-ENROLLMENT. Some classes are one-time, while others meet daily or weekly -- please review the class description. The class section specifies the day(s) and time for the class -- please ensure you have selected the appropriate section option. Space is available on a first come first serve basis, where full payment is required to reserve your spot.
-WEATHER RELATED CLOSINGS, UPDATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS. All announcements and updates regarding school closings or time changes due to severe weather conditions such as snow, will be posted on the website, Facebook and Twitter. All families must check one of these methods of social communication.
-PERSONAL PROPERTY. Parents assume all liability for loss or damage to personal items they bring to Tech Em's facility. Tech Em assumes no responsibility for any personal belongings.
-MEDICAL CONDITIONS. Parents of children who require any type of special medical care are advised that Tech Em staff will not administer medical treatment. Tech Em requires that a parent or caregiver of any child requiring special medical attention stay onsite in the event that a prescribed drug or other treatment may be necessary. If your child requires epinephrine for severe allergies, they should bring their prescribed medication to class, and we will administer in an emergency. Please make sure to indicate if your child has any allergies on your https://secure.techemstudios.com account.
-MAKE-UP CLASSES. We are happy to work with you individually to make-up missed instruction during the course or a single separately scheduled time.
-VISITORS. Tech Em's learning environments are intended to be small and focused. Of course, parents with younger students are encouraged to observe; however, due to facility occupancy limits, we ask that the number of non-students be limited.
-E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS. Please send all e-mail communications to registration@techemstudios.com. We will confirm classes and communicate about enrollments, cancellations, scheduling, calendar changes, session dates, and programs via e-mail from registration@techemstudios.com. Parents are responsible for facilitating receipt by Tech Em of all communications. Tech Em is not responsible for lost communications in the event that its e-mails are not opened, not read, diverted to a spam folder, or the recipient unsubscribes to Tech Em communications.
-PAYMENTS. Tech Em accepts credit cards (via square marketplace or in-person at Tech Em ), and personal checks (payable to "Technology Emersion Studios LLC"). All payments are non refundable after start of the session. There is a $40 cancelation fee for any returned checks.
-CHANGES AND WITHDRAWALS. To change your class day/time or withdraw please send your request in writing (with necessary details) by email to info@techemstudios.com. Please do not call in your request. Tech Em charges a $25 change fee and a $50 withdrawal fee.
-REFUNDS AND REFUND DEADLINES: We will refund the cost of a class/course (less a $50 withdrawal fee) paid toward any multi-day class section prior to the first day of that class section. We will refund single-day/one-time class fees (less a $5 withdrawal fee) prior to 2 hours before the class.
-SCHOOL CREDITS AND SCHOOL CREDIT DEADLINE. If you withdraw after the refund deadline we will issue a school credit (less withdrawal fee and class(es) taken) that shall be used within 6 months.

Elementary kids are already avid users of technology -- let's show them how much more fun it is to be builders of technology.
