    The RES PTO adheres to the policies and procedures outlined below:

    We encourage all parents to consider whether the club is a good fit for their child with regard to energy level, interest, etc. especially after a full day of school.

    Instructors have a limited window of time in which to create and maintain a learning environment. In the unfortunate event that an instructor observes a student disrupting the learning process resulting in a disciplinary issue, the following course of action will take place:
    1. Instructor will talk directly with child.
    2. Instructor will contact parents (if problem continues).
    3. Instructor will notify PTO Club Chairs.
    4. PTO Club Chairs will contact parents (if problem continues).
    5. Instructor will excuse the child from the club (with no refund).

    ** If a parent is notified of a problematic situation by someone other than the instructor, the parent should contact the instructor to initiate the aforementioned process.

    Unless otherwise noted, Musical Theatre dismisses at 5:30. If a child is consistently picked up late, students may be requested to withdraw from the club. You must come to the designated pickup location to get your child.

    Please note there is no nurse on duty during after-school- clubs. 911 will be called for all emergencies.

    Please note that even though clubs are held on school district property, they are under the jurisdiction of the PTO.
