May I register my child for a 9:00 a.m. class and a 2:00 p.m. class with no class in between?
No. All students taking two classes must be registered in back-to-back time slots. There are no exceptions.
My child is taking more than one class. Will he/she be supervised during the 30-minute break between classes?
Students staying for more than one class should bring a sack lunch or snack and will be supervised during the break.
The class my child wants to take is full. Is there anything I can do to get him/her in this class?
After a class has reached the maximum enrollment, no additional students may register. There is a waiting list of three students per class. If space becomes available, these students will be called in the order their registrations were received.
May I register my gifted child for an older age group?
No. Age requirements are strictly enforced and are nonnegotiable. All children must be registered in their correct age groups.
May I stay in the classroom with my child?
No. If you feel that your child is unable to remain in the classroom for more than a few minutes without you, wait another semester before sending him/her to art class. Independent learning and socialization are part of the art camp experience.
A friend or relative is visiting from out of town. May he/she attend class as a guest with my child?
No. Only registered participants may attend class. Guests are not allowed in the classroom.
Do you have change for the vending machines?
No. Please send change with your child for the vending machines.
Do you provide supervision before my child’s scheduled class time?
No. The Glassell Junior School does not offer before-class activities. Children may be dropped off no more than 15 minutes prior to their scheduled class time.
Do you offer an extended-day program?
Yes! Students must be enrolled in the 6–8 age group and above and registered for the 2:00–4:00 p.m. time slot to participate in our After-Care program. Please see page 15 of the summer course catalog for details.
