• EXPECTATIONS WHEN ATTENDING EVENTS 

    A SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR SOTA PARENTS 

    The faculty and staff of School of the Arts are concerned about the safety and well-being of all the members of our community, especially our children. Although we encourage our students to participate in a variety of wonderful extra-curricular and community events, we know that homework, home responsibilities, and a good night’s sleep are critical elements for successful learning. 

    All events begin promptly at 7:00 P.M., unless otherwise specified. Most events end at 8:30 P.M.; SOTA’s Annual Play Series and Dance Concert presentations end approximately at 9:00 P.M.. Therefore, our staff will use the following guidelines regarding SOTA events:   

    EXPECTATIONS   

    • Students are expected to attend a half-day of school on the day of a performance or event. Students will only perform if they meet the attendance policy.   
    • Students in Grades 7 and 8 are welcomed to attend any after-school building-based activities. Such as: sporting events, heritage assemblies, recitals, performances, or concerts throughout the year. Please remember to accompany your child for the entire time of the event.
    • To ensure our safety for all our students, be sure to arrange a timely pick-up of your child prior to the conclusion of all SOTA events.   
    • Your cooperation meeting these expectations will help make SOTA a safer, and more secure environment for all children.
