General Information, Policies & Affiliate Disclosure
For all classes, workshops, and special events, full payment is due 48 hours prior to your scheduled class or workshop.
Please make your reservation at least 7 days prior to the date you would like to schedule your class, workshop, or special event.
Insufficient funds (NSF) checks will be charged a NSF fee of $35. All unpaid fees will be referred to a collection agency for payment. Non-payment is reason for dismissal.
Payments can be made by cash, check, or via Square (an invoice will be emailed to you and it can be paid via Square or by using Cash App Pay). Checks should be made payable to 'Ohana Arts Studio LLC.
By registering you are committing to your session, therefore, you/your child(ren)s spot will be guaranteed.
Cancellations will not be accepted within 7 days of the scheduled class, workshop, or special event. Refunds will only be issued upon request and only if cancellation is received via email 7 days prior to class. Failure to cancel within 7 days prior to your scheduled session will result in a loss of class fee.
Payment may be applied to another class, workshop, or special event if a student is unable to participate. The new class, workshop, or special event must be within 2 weeks of the initial scheduled class, workshop, or special event.
1) Be on time and prepared for class.
2) Be respectful and polite to other students, families, and staff.

4) Only socks are permitted on the dance floor.
5) To maintain our schedule as best as possible, cell phone use should be for emergencies only.
6) No foul language.

8) Any inappropriate behavior by students or parents will be grounds for dismissal.
9) Please inform 'Ohana Arts Studio LLC if any of your information has changed (address, phone number, etc.).
Please do not attend class if ill. This will aid in recovery, but also keep others from getting ill, too.
Unexpected closures (including inclement weather)
'Ohana Arts Studio LLC has the right to cancel or reschedule a class, workshop, or special event
We cancel classes, workshops, and other special events due to inclement weather that makes it unsafe to travel
Should a class or workshop close due to snow days, power outages, or any other reason beyond our control, we will reschedule as soon as our schedule allows. I will call each student should there be a cancellation so please make sure we have current phone contact numbers.
Classes, workshops, and special events are filled on a first-come first-served basis. We are not able to reserve or hold a spot for you until payment has been received and registration papers have been filled. You will receive a confirmation email once payment and forms are completed and submitted.
It is expected that behavior will be appropriate and acceptable during class and at any other events sponsored by us. If a behavior problem (ie unruliness or roughhousing) occurs by a student who is a minor, for child's safety and mine, that student will be taken off the sewing machines and away from the sewing area and the parent will be notified.
If such behavior continues and cannot be resolved, the student will be asked to withdraw from the class or workshop. No refunds of tuition OR fees will be made if a student is asked to withdraw.
Authorized pick up (applies to children):
For the safety of your child, only the parent or guardian who signed for the student to register for classes will be allowed to pick-up a student. If someone else needs to pick up a student, the Parent or Guardian must submit a permission slip in ADVANCE of the day of the class. At any time, if someone other than the Parent or Guardian who registered the student with us attempts to pick up the student without a permission slip, we will not allow the child to leave, and a call will be placed to the Parent or Guardian to notify them of the situation. In the event of an emergency, the parent or guardian may call during class and leave the name of the person who will be picking up the student. This person will be required to show proof of identity.
Students' measurements (applies to sewing and dance students)
Students under the age of 18 must consult with their parent or guardian for proper measurement at home. This is important in the selection of the correct size pattern that best fits and to purchase the proper amount of fabric and accessories to complete their projects. If you have questions concerning this, please call me.

To make sure that everyone can learn and have fun in a safe environment, please keep the following rules in mind:
Listen to the teacher's instructions.
Place your coats, books, and bags in separate places, away from your sewing area.
Wear shoes at all times during sewing class. You do not want to accidentally step on a pin or needle.
Keep your fingers away from the sewing machine needle when winding the bobbin and operating the machine.
Look under your fabric before cutting with scissors and carry scissors with the sharp edge pointing towards the floor. When the scissors are not being used, place them on the cutting table, sewing table, or in your sewing box.
Tread the needle with caution and lower the pressure foot before starting to sew on your fabric.
Remove the pins or sewing clips from your fabric as you sew and place them in the pin cushion after you use them. NEVER put straight pins or needles in your mouth.
Place the iron in the upright position after use. When using the iron hold it by the handle only.
Let your teacher help you use the seam ripper if you are not familiar with using it.
Place your seam gauge, ruler, scissors, and pins in the sewing box after using them.
Keep long hair away from the sewing machine during class.
Ordinarily, I will help press (iron) your child's project. I will teach children how to use the iron only with parent or guardian approval and if I feel the child is ready. Adults are allowed to use the iron and ironing board accordingly.
I reserve the right to make any changes to our General Information, Policies or Safety guidelines as I deem necessary. Mahalo (thank you).
