When scheduling your program, please have the following information ready:
• Contact person’s name

• Date and time desired
Programs must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance, but we recommend scheduling your EdZOOcation program as far in advance as possible.
• Please be on time for your program. If you are more than 10 minutes late, your program will be forfeited and no refund will be given.
• Please call if for any reason you are unable to keep your scheduled program time. A fee of $10.00 will be charged to any group that cancels a program fewer than five school days before the scheduled date or fails to attend the scheduled program. (exceptions include school closings or delays due to inclement weather and other emergencies beyond the control of the teacher.)
• We reserve the right to cancel and reschedule a program due to staff illness or inclement weather.
