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. 

     Our 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 students 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. Thank you.
