Registration Questions

 

Q. What is a "Returning Family"?

Q. What is a "New Family"?

A. New Families are those who are 1) not currently registered or 2) registered for the current academic year February 1 or later of that academic year. All New Families must attend a New and Prior Family Information Meeting before registering. All New Families must be current on all class tuition for current and previous years.

 

Q. What is a "Prior Family"?

A. Prior Families are those who are 1) not currently registered or 2) have been registered in past years but have not registered for the current academic year. All Prior Families must attend a New and Prior Family Information Meeting before registering.

 

Q. Is the registration fee refundable?

A. If none of the children in your family are confirmed in any class upon registration, you may request a refund upon withdrawing from Legacy. If just one child is confirmed in just one class, then the registration fee becomes non-refundable.

 

Q. Is tuition refundable?

A. At registration, four weeks of tuition is non-refundable once it has been submitted to reserve your child’s spot (this represents weeks 29-32). When a student drops a Legacy class during the academic year, the final four weeks' tuition (weeks 29-32 previously paid) will be applied as a drop fee for the four week period from the date notice of withdrawal is given. All other paid tuition is refundable based on the date of withdrawal from class(es). If tuition is prepaid for the entire year or one half of the year, there is a 2% additional drop fee charged per class for withdrawal from class(es).

 

Q. Is the materials fee refundable?

A. No. The materials fee is non-refundable once it has been submitted to reserve your child's spot. Also, when a student drops a Legacy class during the year, they forgo their materials fee.

 

Q. When are jobs assigned?

A. Jobs are assigned in late August. Families will be contacted concerning their job assignments prior to the start of classes in the fall. Job assignments are made based on information provided on the Jobs Form

 

Q. How do I drop a class?

A. To drop a class, log into your account on the Legacy Enrollment System, or visit the Processing Center at Legacy, or email info@legacyhc.org to provide notice for each class that you are dropping. Please note tuition is refundable based on the date of drop with the exception of the final four weeks' (weeks 29-32) paid upon registration.

Parent Absence Policy Questions

 

Q. What counts as one parent absence?
A. A Parent Absence is defined as any instance in which someone other than one of the parents or permanent legal guardians listed on the Registration Contract has responsibility for any of the children listed on the Registration Contract for all or part of a day at Legacy, and each instance must be documented as one of the three exceptions allowed.


Q. Can my parent, cousin, brother, or sister bring my child to Legacy if I am sick or out of town?
A. Extended family members are not allowed to come in place of a parent other than pursuant to the Parent Absence Policy.


Q. Can one of my older children bring my younger children to Legacy?
A. If the older child is at least 18 years old and is not a current student at Legacy, they may bring the younger children to Legacy. This absence must follow the Parent Absence Policy guidelines and will count as one of the 3 allowed excused absences.


Q. What if someone in my family has a long-term medical situation (such as but not limited to cancer, terminal illness, major surgery) where I need to be available to go and help take care of them? Do I still only get 3 excused absences?
A. Please contact the Legacy Board via email to info@legacyhc.org. This type of situation will be reviewed by the Legacy Board on a case by case basis.


Q. What if my parent (my children’s grandparent) is the person that regularly brings my children to Legacy? Will that still be allowed?
A. Please contact the Legacy Board via email to info@legacyhc.org. This type of situation will be reviewed by the Legacy Board on a case by case basis.


Q. What if I or one of my children gets sick during the day on Legacy and I need to leave? Can I do that?
A. Yes, provided that all of the steps are followed for an excused parent absence, including having the Parent Off-Site Form completely filled out and signed. This will count as one of your 3 absences.


Q. What happens if I use all of my 3 absences and now one of my kids is sick and I have a child that must be at Legacy, can I have another excused absence?
A. No, each family is given 3 excused absences. For this reason, we cannot stress enough the need for discernment in applying this exemption to your family’s situation. If you believe your case is exceptional, please contact the Legacy Board via email to info@legacyhc.org.
