CIRCLE DRIVE & DROPOFF
The front drive-up is for quick student drop-offs and pick-ups for 7 and older students already standing outside. Cars wait in the street until their student arrives to the front door after class dismissal; waiting in the driveway is prohibited.
For 6 & younger students, park in the lot and walk inside for pick-up.
OUR LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Our hallway and lobby must be public-library-quiet in order to create a non-distractive atmosphere for the education of students.
The property, building, and parking lots are smoke free zones.
If you have questions regarding your student's progress, please email us.
NOTIFICATION OF ABSENCE OR MODIFIED PARTICIPATION
Please send a note to give to the teacher if you need to have your student excused early from class for an occasional school event, or if they need to observe due to an ailment. Without a parental note, teachers will ask each student for full participation.
Email the studio if the student will be absent.
Your email address and phone must be current with us and our email is safe listed as this is our method of communication to you: admin@ChristineRichStudio.com
NON-SUFFICIENT FUNDS FEE
All payments submitted and not honored by the bank result in a Dishonored Payment Charge of $30.
ANY account balance must be paid in full with cash before participation in the next class or recital occurs. This includes fees associated with missed deadlines.
NO REFUND POLICY
Refunds are not given for any reason. Each student, upon enrollment, is assured a reserved space in class regardless of attendance.
Therefore, there are no refunds for absences such as those due to family trips, medical reasons, physical injuries, inclement weather, change of mind, schedule changes, moving, government restriction for business or community, act of God, or doctor, parent or Studio restrictions, classes online, etc.
If the studio determines that a student is not ready for participation, the studio initiates a prorated refund three weeks after check payment or for credit card payments, less an 8% fee deducted on the total amount previously charged.
SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS/COMBINED CLASS/ONLINE SERVICE
We reserve the right to provide a substitute instructor, change staff instructors as deemed necessary, give online instruction when necessary/mandated, or to cancel a class and offer a make-up class or new class time if a special circumstance interferes with a class time.
DRESS CODE DEADLINE
In order to provide the highest learning standards, all dress codes must be met after the FIRST week of class in case of class cancellation due to low enrollment. It is advisable for each student to fully understand the dress code expectations and be prepared to avoid sitting and observing class.
All female ballet, jazz, and acro students must wear a perfect utilitarian hair ballet bun to class to participate. See our website for how-to. Female students age 7 and older must be able to form their own ballet bun to resume class if their hair falls.
The Studio provides dance instruction to students and families harmoniously cooperating with CRS procedures and Policies. There may be periods where additional protocols must be put into place as experienced during Covid-19 and these directives will be emailed to clients.
Photography and videotaping of classrooms is prohibited.
Any student must be able to work within a group setting without one-on-one attention, without extenuating needs such as food, medicine, visits to the restroom (emergency is the exception), and without talking, or bossing others, etc.
We have a zero-tolerance for bully-type behaviors (verbal or physical, telling students what to do, disrespect, arguing, talking back, demonstrable negativity towards staff or families, etc.), which result in escalating suspensions. Any eventual dismissal is done so without refund.
The Studio reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. It retains absolute authority to make all decisions regarding all policies relating to the rules necessary for the safe, healthy, harmonious, and appropriate learning environment. Students from the previous semester are given the priority to enroll in a limited size class in the next session.
