Zoom Parent Coffee with HOS Jon Alden
As noted in Head of School Jon Alden's February 19 Update, Annual Registration for current families begins Monday, March 8. Parents will be able to confirm their child(ren)’s enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year by reviewing and updating their family’s contact and personal information and paying a non-refundable $1000 deposit for each student.
Our enrollment agreement requires Annual Registration be completed annually by March 31 to ensure student spaces for the upcoming school year. After this date, families who have not completed Annual Registration risk losing their child(ren)’s space(s) as Springmont offers all remaining seats to new students on April 3. Parents will receive emails with links to their child(ren)’s Annual Registration packets on Monday, March 8, and we hope you will indicate your plans to return to Springmont well before the March 31 due date.
While Springmont’s continuous enrollment agreement begins when a family initially enrolls at the school, our agreement allows us to make modifications to the terms of the agreement annually. This year’s updates include the addition of a force majeure clause and a new tuition protection plan. The force majeure is designed to protect the school from unexpected events beyond the school’s control such as fire, acts of nature, war, etc., allowing the school time to safely resume operations without obligation for tuition refunds. The Board is also considering a third-party organization for our tuition protection plan offering for the 2021-11 school year. Changes in the terms and additional details will be provided later this week.
We know you may have questions about Annual Registration and the modifications to the enrollment agreement. Jon will answer questions about Annual Registration at his Zoom Parent Coffee on Friday, February 26, beginning at 9 a.m. No need to RSVP; just us join us on Zoom at 9 a.m. Questions emailed to email@example.com will also be answered promptly.
