All New Ballet students are expected to attend all classes. Please complete the online absence request form to record absences, late arrivals, early dismissals, and to indicate any long term absence period related to COVID-19. Makeup classes are not currently required due to COVID-19. If you are planning to miss class, please fill out the online absence form at least 2 weeks prior to your planned absence.
LATE ARRIVALS: please note that if your dancer is more than 10 minutes late, they will not be allowed to take class and will not be allowed to stay in the building. Please arrive on time!
Dancers are allowed two religious and academic absences. Please fill out the online absence request form in advance. This helps the staff with the planning of rehearsals. All absences for ACT/SAT/ISEE testing are automatically EXCUSED with prior notice. Doctors' notes for prolonged absences are accepted, making these excused without need for make up lessons.
Repeated unexcused absences and/or tardies hamper the fullfillment of a dancer's goals. NBE offers a high standard of training with high expectations. The Teacher or Program Director may call a parent conference in the case of multiple missed classes. Scholarships are also contingent on attendance.
Please review the detailed School Attendance Policy in the Student Handbook.
For questions concerning the schedule, please contact Kathy Coburn, kathy [at] newballet [dot] org
