THE DRESS CODE WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. IF A STUDENT REPEATEDLY IGNORES THE DRESS CODE THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASS.
WHAT IF I MISS A CLASS ?
Make up classes due to student absences are not available. Tuition will not be refunded due to excess absences. It is important that parents make an effort to have their student at their regularly scheduled class times on a regular basis. If absences become an extreme problem, the opportunity to participate in the Spring Performance may be taken away.
Cancellations due to severe weather will be posted on this website. Please check our home page if weather conditions are in question. We DO NOT follow school closings when deciding cancellations.
