Lone Star Signers Class Policies

  • Families are welcome to arrive 10 minutes before class begins.
  • Dads and grandparents are always welcome!
  • Classes are casual and family-centered. No one expects your child to sit still for the entire time, so we build in lots of movement breaks. Each class begins with a few minutes of direct instruction (learning new signs, reading a story or two)—please sit with your child and participate as you are able! It’s okay to be silly—it’s for the kids!
  • We make every effort to keep our classroom area safe for young children. Please assist us by keeping your child away from the windows, TV, and other non-learning areas.
  • Classes are food-free for the safety of our friends with allergies. Feel free to bring a cup with water for your child, but no dairy products. (Breastmilk is always fine. If you are a nursing mom and need to feed your child during class, please do that in whatever way is comfortable for you.)
  • ILLNESS: Do not bring your child or a sibling if he/she has had a fever or if there have been incidences of vomiting/diarrhea in the 24 hours prior to class. Please do not come to class if your child has HFM, RSV, strep, or other contagious diseases. (Runny noses due to allergies are obviously common here in San Antonio—no worries!)
  • We offer one make-up class per session for cases of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a class, please give advance notice at least 12 hours before class—last minute cancellations and no shows are not eligible for a make-up class.
  • Tuition payments are non-refundable.
  • Please know how much we appreciate having your family join us for weekly classes! In the past three years, we have had nearly 50 students graduate and many return for multiple sessions. We treasure the genuine community that has been built. Please feel free to reach out in the Facebook group during the week with questions or success stories—we are here to help and want to celebrate with you!

Keep in mind that consistency in signing at home is what makes a difference with your child—classes are for parents to get simple ideas for integrating ASL vocabulary into everyday activities, and we love watching our children have fun, too.
