Policies for our Workshops
ON TIME ARRIVAL
It is important for the student to arrive on time to complete their assignment and supplemental activities for the session. To maintain an atmosphere conductive to study, only students are allowed to enter the Thorro Learning Room during Class time. Please make sure your child visits the restroom and gets a drink of water (if desired) prior to beginning their work.
Thorro Learning is not a day-care center. We cannot provide child care services. Parents and guardians are advised that each child’s session varies in length according to the time it takes to complete the day’s assignment. If, in the parent’s or guardian’s determination, a child is not old enough to go to and from the Center on his/her own, the parent/guardian is responsible for assuring the child’s arrival and departure. Thorro Learning is not responsible for ensuring that any child stays on the premises. The parent/guardian shall be liable for any damages and injuries caused by their child to other persons and the parent agrees to hold harmless, defend, and indemnify Thorro LLC and its Instructor(s). The Instructor is not liable for any student outside the Center facility before the student enters or after the student leaves the Center.

Violators will be liable to the fullest extent of the law. Once projects are completed, they are to be sent home with the students.
NOT A CHILD OR DEPENDENT EXPENSE

This document sets forth certain current policies. However, these policies may be changed or modified by us as circumstances require.
We require one week advance cancellation notice. If you cancel at least a week in advance, the fees are fully refundable. If cancelled a week or less in advance, the fees are non-refundable. The fees are not transferable.
SNOW AND DISASTER PLANS AND PROCEDURE:
Due to emergency situations and the unpredictability of the weather conditions, there may be situations in which it is necessary to cancel classes and close our Center completely in order to safeguard our students and employees. In case of emergencies or upcoming storms, our Center will follow the same procedures of the Public School District. We will also place messages announcing class cancellations and any related updates on the Center’s telephone voice message center as well as on our social media outlets. Parents and students are advices to stay informed.
ATTENDANCE AND ABSENT POLICY:
Class attendance is a vital part of the Thorro Learning program. Observing students work in class greatly assists the Instructor in planning the student’s study plan. The Center Director has the right to cancel , suspend or refuse service(s) on an immediate basis; this decision is at the sole discretion of the Center Director.
THORRO LEARNING IS A YEAR-ROUND PROGRAM OF STUDY:
Daily study is an imperative part of Thorro Learning’s method and is highly encouraged in order to reap the program’s benefits. Thorro Learning projects are assigned 365 days per year. Parents may request to lessen or increase the daily workload to be done by the student over weekends and vacations.
HOME GRADING POLICY:
An important gauge of how your child grasps the concept is the timing of his assignments and the accuracy in which they are completed. This is also a requirement to move ahead in the Thorro Learning program. There are numerous advantages of grading the student’s work at home:
§ It allows your child to learn immediately from any mistakes by correcting them while fresh in mind
§ It encourages students to work harder knowing that work will be checked immediately
§ It helps you monitor your child's progress as it keeps you aware of their results
§ It helps the student reach their grade level quicker.
