Although the 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. P
lease 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 issues. 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.

Attendance Policy

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.


Parking

Free parking is available at most times in the Coliseum parking lot located across from the Creative Arts Center, and the Krepps Park area across from the Creative Arts Center, and at several short-term lots around the Creative Arts Center. After 4:00pm on weekdays and during weekends, parking restrictions are lifted in the 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.
