Note to Parents
Although the Loulie, Valerie and William Canady Creative Arts Center is a safe environment, parents are
advised to accompany young children to and from their classes/lessons
and to not leave them unattended for any length of time. Teachers cannot
be expected to be responsible for waiting around after classes to keep
watch on young children. Please be sure to keep in touch regularly with your teachers concerning
lesson times. If you are not sure about a lesson time, please contact
your teacher to make sure there has not been a misunderstanding. Communication
is the key to preventing and solving problems before they turn into larger
Please be aware that our faculty have extremely busy schedules like you
do. When you register for lessons, you have made a commitment, as our
teachers have, to show up each week for the lesson/class. As much as
we sympathize with your busy schedule and daily issues that come up in
your lives, our teachers are not obligated to makeup lessons unless they
have cancelled. Please also be advised that no adjustments in tuition
will be given for cancellations. Thank you for your understanding.
Students are expected to attend all scheduled lessons and classes. In
case of school (WVU) closure or teacher absence for any reason, a make-up
lesson will be arranged. Teachers are not obligated to make up lessons resulting from student
cancellations and there will be no adjustment in tuition.
Free parking is available at most times in the Coliseum parking lot located
across from the Loulie, Valerie and William Canady Creative Arts Center, and the Krepps Park area across
from the Loulie, Valerie and William Canady Creative Arts Center, and at several short-term lots around
the Loulie, Valerie and William Canady Creative Arts Center. After 4:00pm on weekdays and during weekends,
parking restrictions are lifted in the Loulie, Valerie and William Canady Creative Arts Center parking lot,
Area 45. Before 4:00pm on weekdays, the University will ticket cars without
permits. Please be aware of this if you want to schedule lessons before
4:00pm on weekdays.
