The regular schedule of the School may be suspended without notice during periods that the School must close because of events outside our control until such time as the School, in its sole discretion, may re-open. Such events may include, acts of God, war, riot, civil commotion, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction (including that of a local authority), accident, fire, flood, storm, pandemic or epidemic of any disease, terrorist attack, chemical or biological contamination.
If an event outside the School’s control occurs and the regular schedule of the School is suspended, then provided that the School has acted reasonably and prudently to prevent and/or minimize the effect of the event outside the School’s control, the School will not be responsible for not performing those of its obligations that are prevented or delayed by, and during the continuance of, the event. To the extent reasonably practicable in the circumstances, the School will try during the continuance of the event to continue to provide educational services (including extending appropriate educational services remotely). Parents will not normally be entitled to a tuition refund.
