Touchstone makes every effort to run each and every workshop. However, the organization reserves the right to cancel a workshop for any reason. Touchstone will make cancellation notifications, due to low enrollment, at least 14 days ahead of the start of the workshop. If a workshop cancellation occurs, students will be able to (1) transfer to another class or (2) receive a full refund. Students who cancel a registration 30 or more days prior to the start of the workshop date will receive a refund of their paid deposits minus the non-refundable processing fee and a cancellation fee. Students who cancel within the 30 days prior to the start of the workshop date will not be entitled to any refund. In addition, no refunds will be given after the workshop begins. Touchstone is not responsible for non-refundable or prepaid travel arrangements.

Touchstone reserves the right to dismiss immediately and permanently any student – without refund – for behavior considered unacceptable, including but not limited to the following:
In the event of an emergency, students should contact the nearest available staff member. In case of medical emergency or fire, contact 911. Basic first aid kits and fire extinguishers are located throughout campus; please be aware of their locations. In any situation, always get help first and do not put yourself in danger. Emergency procedures, phone numbers, and directions to Uniontown Hospital and MedExpress Urgent Care are located in each building. A phone is located in the dining hall for 24-hour emergency use.
Students and instructors are asked to voluntarily provide a listing of any medical conditions or allergies that staff should be aware of in the event of an emergency on the student waiver, release and indemnity agreement. It is Touchstone’s policy to contact 911 in the event of a medical emergency. Touchstone does not supply or administer any form of injectable adrenaline (epinephrine). If you have a known allergy to foods, insect stings/bites, environmental items, and/or other products, we strongly encourage you to bring your own supply of allergy medicines or EpiPen for self-injection. If you should have an accident that requires medical attention, call 911 and/or notify a staff member immediately. The Uniontown Hospital and MedExpress Urgent Care center are both a 20-minute drive from Touchstone. If you have a nighttime emergency that cannot wait until morning, contact a designated staff member and/or check the emergency phone list posted in each building.
