• If a child is consistently disruptive and prevents the instructor from conducting class, the instructor reserves the right to ask the child to drop the class. Parents will be given a formal warning before these measures are taken.

Food allergies and restrictions
If your child has any food/substance allergies, please note them during registration and on our waiver. Programs staff will follow up with families on a case-by-case basis. Parents/guardians are responsible for providing any necessary medical supplies (e.g., EpiPen). Program Instructors have current First Aid/CPR certification.

Nuts: Our recipes are peanut and common tree nut free.
• We do NOT adhere to a “nut-free” policy at School. However, we make every effort to minimize risk to vulnerable students. For students who bring snacks, our staff enforces a strict, “no trading and no sharing” policy. In addition, instructors are informed of any student who has allergies.

Other Allergies: We’re unable to provide gluten free or dairy free classes.
Students work together to make one large pot of class sauce that is divided among the students therefore substitutions are not an option.

Vegetarians: We provide vegetarian options upon request at registration.
• Families that don’t eat certain types of meat should register as vegetarian. ​
Missing the first cooking class
Our cooking classes are designed for students to build on their skill level over time. On our first day of class we cover all our Knife Safety Rules & Classroom Expectations.​

If your child needs to misses the first class please email us and we will provide you with the rules and recipe so you can go through the lesson at home.

Walk Home Authorization:

Inclement Weather Policy
If your school as an Inclement Weather Policy that also covers refunds, RDDC will follow that policy.

If your school does not have a policy, the following will be adhered to:

If the school cancels enrichment programs for weather conditions, we work with the school to schedule a make-up-class.

If that is not possible, we will not issue refunds.

However, if the school is running enrichment programs but RDDC needs to cancel due to weather conditions, and a make-up day is not able to be scheduled, refunds will be issued.
Safety
Safety of students is of highest priority. Program staff work very hard to maintain an environment where students can participate in activities safely.

All our instructors have current First Aid/CPR certification. Occasionally students may experience a minor injury while participating in activities. When that happens, program staff uses their first aid knowledge to take care of the student. All staff carries basic first aid supplies with them throughout the day.

If a child is significantly injured, the staff will immediately call 9-1-1 as well as notify a parent or guardian. In the event of a natural or other disaster, students will remain under the direct care and supervision of program staff until an authorized individual is able to check them out.
