Drop-Off and Pick-Up:
Parents/guardians of elementary school students:
- Drop-off: Parents/guardians need to enter the building, escort their child to the music classroom, and sign-in.
- During lesson: Parents/guardians may wait in the lobby or at the tables outside the auditorium until the lesson is over. Some parents/guardians may choose to wait in their cars, or leave and come back.

- If a person other than the parent/guardian is to pick up an elementary student, the parent/guardian must email the office in advance to notify them of the change.

- Only individuals 18+ may pick up a child. Under special circumstances, a parent/guardian may request the age requirement be waived. In that instance, the parent/guardian must request an Age Requirement Waiver from the Lifelong Music Academy office, which must be signed and returned before the pickup occurs.

- Drop off: Parents/guardians of middle school students may drop their child off from the car drop off lane or may accompany their child into the building.
