Student, Parent, Faculty and Staff Code of Conduct
I recognize the commitment that all supporters of my school and home have made for me to attend classes at Mancini Academy. I will do my part:
• I will arrive on time to class, dressed and ready, without my cell phone and chewing gum.
• I will attend class on a regular basis. High absenteeism is grounds for dismissal.
• I will wear the proper dance attire.
• I will wear my hair pulled back neatly and securely off of my face.
• I will use the restroom before, between or after class.
• I will use language and behavior which is appropriate to use in a school.
• I will respect my parents and teachers always.
• I will be polite to all students, staff and instructors at all times.
• I understand that I can be dismissed from class for misbehavior.
• I understand that I am responsible to learn in class and practice at home my choreography, songs, monologues or any material that the instructor has taught me.
I recognize the importance of theatre and dance in the lives of young people. I pledge that I will participate in my child’s activities in accordance with the following:
• I will promote teamwork and sportsmanship for all students in a positive manner.
• I will support my child’s class and teachers, and resolve to allow the teachers to manage their students as they feel best benefits the entire class.
• Because I am a role model for my child as well others, my personal conduct at the academy must be above reproach, and represent the highest standards.
