WINTER WEATHER CLOSURES & SAME DAY SICK CANCELLATIONS
SAME DAY SICK CANCELLATIONS: $50.00 fee for cancelling the day of your appointment if you are not feeling well or you have to stay home with your child.
NON-STATE OF EMERGENCY WEATHER CANCELLATIONS: $50.00 fee for cancelling the day of your appointment for weather-related concerns that you may have. If there is a state of emergency and/or Natick schools are closed, I will close, and you will not be charged the fee of course.
Please do not ask me to decide for you if you should cancel on non-emergency weather-related concerns or if you are sick. Please do feel free to reach out with any questions or to confirm your appointment if ever you are in doubt, of course.
*Please always cancel if you have a fever, stomach bug, the flu, strep, or shingles.
For any other less than 24-hour cancellations or no shows, you are responsible for the full fee of the missed session.
