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 PM, unless otherwise specified. Most events end at 8:30 PM; SOTA’s Annual Play Series and Dance Concert presentations end approximately at 9:00 PM. SOTA staff will use the following guidelines regarding SOTA events:
- 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.
