ATTENDANCE & STUDENT INFORMATION

Regular Attendance is essential to ensure our student’s progress.  Each child’s absence not only affects them, but all of the other children in the class, as well. Perfect attendance awards will be given out in June at our recital.

 Students should arrive a few minutes early to put shoes on and to prepare for class. Shoes should be carried to class in a dance bag, preferably a Studio B bag. 

All children are to remain in the building while waiting for rides home.  Parents, please arrive 5 minutes before their release time when picking them up.  If you are going to be late picking them up, for any reason, please call the school.

♦    Due to the increase of asthma and allergies in our pupils and teachers we ask all students not to wear any scented lotions, hair products or perfumes, etc. when they attend class.  Many of these products can trigger reactions.  Please be considerate of others in class.  This is a safety issue.

 

WAITING ROOM

Parents may use our waiting rooms when accompanying their children to class. Parents are not allowed to sit in the classroom during class time. Better progress is made by students when they are not distracted by parents and friends. Please help us keep our waiting areas neat and clean.

Please feel free to come in or call if you have any questions regarding your child’s progress or you may e-mail any comments or questions to: BettyCardsStudioB@aol.com

 

BAD WEATHER

If we have a day with bad weather or school is canceled because of the weather, you should call the school and check the answering machine for our decision regarding the day’s lessons.  No school does not necessarily mean no dance or gym classes.

If you get no answer when you call, try again.  This means you were call waiting.

Saturday students – Please call the school after 9:00 AM to check on your class

Weekday students – Please call after 1:00 PM to check on your class
