Registration for Summer Sessions
Coaching Agreement: Summer 2019
The following outlines the way that sessions take place at Brightside Learning:
Drop-in Sessions occur on an 'as needed' basis and include one week of unlimited follow-up; please note that we are not able to guarantee specific time slots for these sessions and that 24 hours' notice is required for cancellations. If less than 24 hours' notice is provided, there will be an administrative fee of $35.00. To cancel a session, please log in to your Online Portal and cancel directly from the calendar. Cost: $80.00 for 50 mins | $50.00 for 30 mins. Invoices are generated on Fridays for the previous week’s drop-in sessions and are payable upon receipt by credit card or e-transfer. All outstanding balances must be completely paid before the next session can be attended.

CANCELLATIONS & LATENESS
Twenty four (24) hours' notice is required to cancel a session unless there is a sudden illness or emergency. In these very rare cases, please let us know about the cancellation as soon as possible. Cancellations that do not comply with this policy will be charged at the regular rate.
One (1) properly cancelled session per month is eligible to be rescheduled and all cancellations that exceed this amount will be lost.
To cancel a session, please log in to your Online Portal and cancel directly from the calendar.
In the unlikely event that your Learning Coach needs to cancel a session, we will let you know as soon as possible and provide you with alternate arrangements.
All students are expected to arrive on time as sessions cannot be extended for late arrivals. If your coach is running late, we will extend the session accordingly.
Please advise us immediately about any cases of lice, the flu, strep throat, bronchitis, gastro or anything else that is contagious so that we can cancel the session. If a student was not well enough to attend camp that day, then they are not well enough to attend their coaching session.
Unfortunately, since summer programming takes place over a very short period of time, we are unable to offer withdrawals or reimbursements once registration and payment are received.
