Info spots on the doors to the studio, state everything that's going on at PIPA Monthly or weekly newsletters are available in the studio at all times Any updates, which are not posted in the newsletter, will be e-mailed and most info will be posted at www.PIPARTSNC.COM  Please make sure PIPA has your correct e-mail address! Handouts and Bulletin Board Information: PIPA produces several newsletters and flyers throughout the season.  They are loaded with lots of important information you will need to know about.  Extra handouts are always available in our waiting area.  In the event your child is absent, it will be your responsibility to contact our office staff.  Check our web page at www.PIPARTSNC.com for all updated information throughout the season. PARENT AND INSTRUCTOR COMMUNICATION:  It is very important for parents and instructors to keep lines of communication open to ensure each student is getting the most out of his/her learning experience.  If you ever have questions or ideas, please make an appointment with your child's instructor before or after normal studio business hours.  Make sure you are receiving and reading your monthly newsletter (which is given to your child).  This will keep you up-to-date on everything. ATTENDANCE: Regular attendance is necessary for productive learning.  It is recommended that non-competitive dancers not miss more than 5 classes per fall session or 2 classes per spring session.  However, if a dancer must miss a class for any reason, please call ahead to inform the office. PIPA parents are responsible for obtaining any information missed when absent. CLASS OBSERVATION:  Parents will be able to observe classes the last class of the month starting in November.  The instructor will welcome parents into class. We know you are excited to see how much your kids are learning, however, parents & friends sitting through class is not allowed, as it will disturb valuable practice time.  Please take advantage of each parent observation day. LOST & FOUND: PIPA is not responsible for lost items.  If you are missing something, please check the lost and found box.  Please put your child's name on all of their dance items (in both shoes).
