Holidays and Closures
Seattle Tae Kwon Do is closed for all national holidays. In addition to this we are closed the last Saturday of each month for Color Belt Graduation Ceremonies. We do not close for spring break or mid winter break, however we do close the last week of December and the first Week of July for winter and summer Breaks. If the weather is not permitting and we need to cancel classes, we will send you an email. You may also call the school as we will have the phones forwarded to someone who can answer your questions at that time. Please be sure to pick up a monthly Sidekick Newsletter to updates on all monthly events and closures as well as check the Seattle Tae Kwon Do website for announcements. Tuition is not subject to adjustment for closures.
Students should attend two classes each week. If you miss any classes, you may make them up the week before (If you know in advance, such as holiday closure) or the after the absence. Please see the class schedule to see which classes are appropriate for your rank level. Students are not allowed to attend classes that are not designated for their age and skill level.
