Absences may affect the student advancing to the next level, participating in Spectrum’s Holiday Performance, participating in the All School Demonstration, and continuing to attend that particular class. The following guidelines will be implemented for unexcused absences:
    • After a third absence within a seven-week session, student(s) will be automatically removed from the class. There will be no refund or class credit without a medical note from a licensed practitioner.

      If a student has 2 absences within a seven-week session, they will be contacted by Spectrum staff to find out about the status of the student and if the student should be removed from the class list. Spectrum will make all efforts to work with families to ensure student(s) can come back to class.

  • The following dress codes will be observed in Spectrum’s Children and Youth Division classes; any exceptions to these dress codes will have to be approved by class instructor or Joshua Crouch, School Principal.
