Policies

Policies:

-PACK classes have a cap size. Once a class is full, no more students will be registered for that class.

-Your child’s spot is secured upon receipt and confirmation of registration information and non-refundable $25 registration fee. Registration fee is separate from tuition. All PACK families pay the registration fee once per season (2016-2017). This allows PACK to reserve our venue and purchase initial supplies before the session starts.

-Tuition is due in full by the first class of the session. If you prefer to pay monthly, please contact Ms. Jess to set up payment plan. If student withdraws from program after the second class of the session, tuition will not be refunded/full tuition is still owed. Students may not attend class if tuition is not paid or payment plan has not been confirmed by week 1.

-If you choose a payment plan, there will be a $10 late fee for tuition received after the first class of every month.

-$35 fee for returned checks

-Absences are disruptive to the progression of productions, and disrespectful to the other students. Excessive absences will not be tolerated.

-Prompt pick-up and drop-off MUST be observed. After 5-minute grace period, PACK will charge $10 per five minutes late.

-Casting is the responsibility of the directors, and is taken very seriously. Please do not contact PACK teaching artists regarding casting decisions. We appreciate your cooperation and support!

-PACK rehearsals/classes are closed. Thank you so much for your cooperation. If you must enter the space before class is over, please refrain from talking on your cell phone.
