LBS November Update

Lost & Found

Can’t find your favorite jacket? Missing your ballet shoes? Take a look through the LBS lost & found during the last week of the fall semester, 11/26 – 12/1 to find your lost items! Make-up week, 12/10 – 12/12 will be the last call to claim your items. After 12/12, we will be donating all left over items. 

Handbook Highlights: Weather Policy & Attendance Policy

Weather Cancellations: During inclement weather, the Louisville Ballet School will generally close when Jefferson County Public Schools classes are cancelled. However, we will not always adhere to Jefferson County Schools closures, since afternoon weather and driving conditions can differ considerably from early morning conditions. Please call 583-3150, ext. 245 or check the school website for the most up-to-date announcements related to School closings.

Make up Classes: Students are encouraged to make up any excused absences, which include those missed due to illness, injury, weather cancellation or tardiness. All make-up classes should be completed by the end of each semester. Make-up classes may be taken in an alternate section of the student’s registered class or in a lower level class. Parents should sign their child in at the front desk for all make-up classes taken at the St. Matthews studios to ensure that the student receives credit for the classes they make up. If the parent or student does not sign-in to record the make-up class, it will not be recorded on their attendance record, which could affect the student’s evaluation at the end of the school year.  Click here for the Fall Semester Make up Week Schedule.
