Parent & Student Conduct:
1. Students are asked to listen, be kind and respectful to teachers and other students in class, and to work hard and do their best. If a child exhibits poor behavior in class, we have a "3-strikes" rule. On the first instance the child will receive a warning from the teacher. On the second instance there will be a parent-teacher conference. If poor behavior continues after the second strike, the student will be dismissed from the class. In extreme classes, your child may be dismissed from Arts Avenue permanently, meaning they may not return in future years.
2. Students with dinner/snack breaks between classes in the evenings are expected to conduct themselves in a tasteful manner and clean up after themselves. If this rule is not followed, students will need to be picked up for breaks.
3. Students must be in dress code for class. Students that are not in dress code may be asked not to participate.
4. Arts Avenue Theater & Dance reserves the right to decline service to families based on poor conduct of parents/students, delinquent balances, or disloyal behavior.

1. All students MUST attend dress rehearsal for their shows, whether theater or dance. If your child is unable to attend a dress rehearsal, they are subject to removal from the show.
2. All students must have a zero balance in order to perform in any shows or competitions.
