Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

  • Drop Off: During the Fall and Spring PAA sessions, parents and guardians can drop their child off or bring them into the building to sign in.  
  • Pick Up: During class or rehearsal pick-up, PAA requests that children 6th grade and below (ages 3-12) be signed out by their parents and escorted to their vehicle as an added measure of safety in what is becoming a very busy parking lot. 

PAA highly regards the safety of all students and can only provide supervision during the time that programming is occurring.  Students must arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of programming, and must be picked up within 15 minutes of the end of programming (rehearsals, classes, workshops etc.).

A one-time late pick up or early drop off of not more than 15 minutes is allowed without penalty. Following the one-time allowance, a $1 per minute fee will be charged and applied for subsequent early drop offs and/or late pick-ups.  The Arrival and Pick-up policy applies to all parents, guardians, and students who are responsible for their own transportation plans.

PAA values your commitments and time, and asks that you understand and respect PAA’s staff and faculty schedules and the importance we place on the supervisory responsibilities of our students.
