Policies for Sowams School
All communications are through email from Arts Alive. Please do not call the office with questions about the play.
It is imperitive that we have the correct email for you and any other caregivers for your child. Also, please ensure that you are able to receive emails from email@example.com.
Rehearsal Dismissal + Late Pick-Up Policy
Unless otherwise noted, rehearsals at Sowams School end at:
4:00 pm for first graders
4:30 pm for second and third graders
You do NOT need to send in a dismissal note for rehearsals. Arts Alive! staff will provide a list of children participating in rehearsals each week for sign-out.
Please be on time to pick up your child. If your child remains in our care 15 minutes beyond the designated pick-up time, you will incur a $10.00 late pick up fee per family for every 10 minutes beyond the 15 minute grace period (i.e., 1-10 minutes late, $10.00; 11-20 minutes late, $20.00, etc.). Late fees must be paid in full at the time of pick up. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
While we are confident that your experience with Arts Alive will be a positive one, we have outlined our refund policy below. All refund requests must be made in writing and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a registered student decides not to participate in the Arts Alive school program:
– A full refund, minus a $30 processing fee will be given if the student withdraws, prior to the first day of auditions
– A 50% refund will be given for withdrawal after auditions have started but before the cast list is posted
– A 25% refund will be given after cast lists have been posted but prior to the first rehearsal
– No refunds will be given once rehearsals have begun. Extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis.
The play consists of an ensemble cast. Even if you think your child has a small part, they are a significant part of the play. Their absence affects the entire cast. Please do your best to ensure that your child is present for every rehearsal for which they are called. If your child has to miss a rehearsal, please notify us as soon as possible. More than three (3) absences may result in a student’s lines being reassinged to another actor.
All participants and their parents will be required to review and sign the Arts Alive! Discipline Policy. The Discipline Policy will be reviewed at the start of the program. In addition, a hard copy will be provided to be signed and returned.
Scholarship are available. Please contact Principal Callahan if you wish to apply.
Fitting dates will be announced through email.
All fittings take place at our storage facility:
