I am having a moment of frustration.
At the beginning of the year, I signed both dc up for the Landry Academy Chemistry Lab Intensive (fairly expensive). Thank goodness I did, because I wound up bailing on my original chemistry curriculum and restarting well into the semester. I was thinking, "Well, at least I know that labs are covered if we are not able to cover everyone that I had planned during the year".
Fast forward to last week when I received a very short email stating that they have rescheduled the lab intensive days. The new dates are absolutely awful for us. Dd is in a Musical Theater production that week and Ds has an AP test. I am now into the second semester - what do they expect me to do? Plan and cram a year's worth of labs into this semester?
They are willing to give me a refund , but what do I do about the labs? I was already going to drive to the bottom of our state and pay for two nights at a hotel. Now I am just miffed. It is possible for us to do the intensive, but it will put a HUGE time constraint and major stress on us now. Very unhappy with the situation. No explanation, just a short note stating they were changing it.
Do I try to plan and cram chemistry labs into this semester when we are already behind and trying to catch up? Or do we try to cram the two days in and add major stress to our lives?
UPDATE: I just wanted to update this in case it gets searched years from now. Landry Academy has worked with me to schedule other classes with the refund from the Lab Intensives. They needed to reschedule their lab days. Things like that happen. It definitely put us in the position of not being able to attend the new class dates due to other prior commitments. It also left us scrambling to figure out ways to fulfill our class objectives. However, they did apologize and offered me several other options to try and rectify our situation. (And, I have had time to cool off a bit.)
Other than this hiccup, we have been very pleased with the classes ds and dd are taking with them this year.
Our family has signed up for a total of 5 classes for next year. I even signed up for one for myself!
