ALLERGIES & SENSITIVITIES: So that Studio may keep each child safe, the school surveys the parents of enrolled students before the beginning of each school year to learn about each child’s food, animal, or environmental allergies or sensitivities and food preferences. Once our designated health and safety administrator has received information from a family, she will call the family to review that information with them, and also talk with the child’s doctor if the child has allergies or sensitivities that may require medication. For students with more severe allergies that are potentially life-threatening, the child’s teacher, program head, and the safety administrator will meet with the child’s parents to develop an allergy plan tailored for that child.

It is the responsibility of the parent to immediately alert our health and safety administrator about any allergy-related experience, change of medication, and any new information concerning their child’s allergies. An online allergy form can be found in the Forms Library of the Parent's Page. See 'Parent Login' at top of this page.

STATEMENT OF NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY: The Studio School is committed to creating a community that celebrates the richness of life and the common bonds of all humanity. We are dedicated to teaching students and involving their families in a non-judgmental and heterogeneous way regardless of age, race, religion, sex, national origins, or family composition. logo
