Sometimes We Cancel a Class….
On occasion we will cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment. We make that decision ten (10) days before the scheduled class. We recommend that you call to confirm that the class has met its minimum enrollment and will go on as scheduled.

Winter Weather Alert!
Weather can be unpredictable here in Central Oregon. When winter weather affects driving conditions, our priority is safety! Please note that if the Sisters School District is closed due to weather conditions, we will also cancel class that day. We will reschedule the class for another day, based on classroom and instructor availability.

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
Thank you!
