MISSED CLASSES:

The Academy will do its best to provide make-up times for classes missed due to illness or other legitimate excuses. However, attendance is your responsibility and make-up classes are not guaranteed. Classes not in a June show are allowed 5 make up classes per class per season. Classes participating in a June show: 5 make ups are allowed per class from August 12, 2019 - February 16, 2020. Make ups will not be allowed in June Show classes beginning February 18, 2020 - June 6, 2020. Students must be currently enrolled to attend a make-up class. Make-ups must be done within one month of absence. Students must check in at the office and obtain a make-up slip before participating in the class. Students may not make-up a class prior to missing a class.


PARKING:

Our primary concern is the safety of our students. Parking is available on either side of the Academy or on the street. There is a drop off zone in front of the Academy. No waiting, parking, or double parking is permitted in the drop-off zone at any time. Faculty Only parking spaces are directly across from the front door; no student parking.


CLASS CONDUCT:

Students are expected to be quiet in class, pay attention at all times, and show respect for their teachers. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and will result in dismissal from class.


PUNCTUALITY:

Admission to class will be denied if a student is more than 10 minutes late. Parents must not drop children off earlier than 15 minutes before their class and students must be picked up immediately following their last class. Parents are subject to a $15 charge, plus $1 per minute after 15 minutes, if a child is not picked up in a timely manner. The Academy cannot be responsible for overseeing students outside of class.


PRIVATE LESSONS:

Please see office for information regarding private lessons.


CLASS ENROLLMENT:

The Academy cannot permit students to enroll in any class above their recommended level. Teachers have the exclusive right to determine the appropriate level. A 2-week notice prior to the start of the next pay period is required when dropping from a class.


PARENT OBSERVATION:

Parents may observe classes during the following dates:

Nov 4 - 9
Dec 9 – 14

VIDEO/PHOTOGRAPHY:

No video or photography allowed without the permission of the Instructor and the other student’s parents, prior to the start of class.


FOOD:

Food and drinks (other than water bottles) are not allowed in the studios. Popcorn, crackers, or crumbly foods are not allowed in the lobby. Other food and drinks in the lobby will be allowed only if the area is picked up, and wrappers and waste are disposed of in the appropriate containers in front of the Academy.


COMMUNICATION:

Most classes run back to back, making it difficult to speak with instructors. If you have special concerns or questions, you may talk to personnel in the office; if necessary, messages will be passed on to instructors. If for any reason you will not be in class, please call to let us know. A student missing more than 2 weeks in a row without notifying the Academy is subject to replacement in classes with waiting lists.
