________  Dancers who miss more than one class may choose to schedule a make up class in the appropriate age within 3 weeks of the absence.  Please check in with the office  so they can notify the teacher.

 _________  Starsteps Dance Center follows the Caldwell County Schools’ schedule for Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, MLK Day and Spring Break.  Starsteps will not close for teacher workdays.

 _________  Snow/Ice:  If Caldwell County Schools  are closed for  snow/ice please call Starsteps, check the  website,, or facebook for announcements regarding classes.  If there is no message regarding weather, then classes will follow the schools decision.

 _________  It is our belief that students work more productively when not observed.  Teachers need the full attention of your child to teach effectively.  We are proud of our teachers and teaching methods so parents may check on students through observation window at any time. Keep in mind not to distract or disrupt students during class.  Please do not block hallway as classes are letting out because children can become scared or frightened in tight spaces.
