Arrival and Dismissal Procedures
Parents are expected to bring their children in time for their class and pick them up promptly after the class is over. In case of a late pick-up, a fee of $1 per minute will be charged. If anyone else is picking up your child, please notify the teacher in writing. For your child's protection, we will not release your child to an unauthorized adult. Please include the names and phone numbers of people who are allowed to pick up your child in the Student Information Form.
No supervision will be provided to the students outside after the students are dismissed and picked up by their parents. The School of Russian Language, Literature and Arts is released from all claims and liabilities arising from children playing outside.
Parents while waiting for their children in the hall are asked to keep their voices down so they do not distract students in the classrooms.
The children might be working with a variety of art materials, so please dress them in clothes that will not be damaged by paint, clay, glue, etc.
Usually we announce that a child has a birthday so all other students can congratulate him/her. If parents decide to bring food to the School as a way of celebrating their child’s birthday, we encourage bringing healthy snacks or fruit. Please let us know about your decision ahead of time so we can make all necessary arrangements.
For all our classes we ask parents to provide snack for the child. Please keep the snack light and put it in a lunch box or plastic container labeled with your child’s name. We encourage nutritional snacks to replenish energy. Please don’t send in drinks, as water will be provided with your child’s snack.

Children are not allowed to bring iPads, iPhones, mobile phones, computers, Nintendo DSs, expensive items of jewelry and anything that can distract students from the learning process.
