We want our students to learn in the best possible environment. The students need to feel safe in the environment and not feel like they are on display. There will be 2 viewing weeks; one in the first semester at our holiday showing and one in the 2nd semester.
1. Students MUST wait inside the building to be picked up. 2. No student is permitted to leave the building without an adult. 3. All students should use the restroom before entering class. 4. Please try to keep the lobby as quiet and clean as possible. 5. Please do not interrupt the teachers while classes are in session. All problems should be sent to the artistic director and will be addressed within 24 hours. 6. DTS is in no way responsible for unsupervised children.
