The AIM Parking lot is not for parents to sit and wait for hours while kids are taking class. The lobby is also not a socialization zone for parents. The parking lot is only large enough for parents picking up their students from the previous class. YOU MUST DROP YOUR CHILD OFF, BUT YOU CAN RETURN AND PARK TO WATCH THE LAST 30 MINUTES OF CLASS. The lobby is for students who have an hour in between classes to either eat dinner or work on homework; not for parents to sit and hang out for hours at a time. You should only be in the lobby if you are watching the end of your child’s class or picking him/her up.


The only students excluded from this mandatory program are our “Preschool Acrobatics” and “Creative Dance” students. The only other exception is any student registered in any class offered at 4:30pm. These students may park instead of using the drop-off program because these are our first classes of the day. All other students, especially those who come to dance at 5:30pm or later, must use the drop-off program.

FOR DROP-OFF

When you get to AIM, you must enter through the side marked “ENTRANCE” with signs. You must pull through the semi-circle and pull up close to the door so that one of our dance assistants can assist your child in helping him/her get out of the car and safely into the dance studio (this is located right at the front door). Then you must proceed to the side marked “EXIT” to leave. We have this drop-off program in place because we have numerous classes starting and ending at the same time and do not have enough parking places for all parents. When classes are starting and finishing at the same time we can only allow the students who are leaving, or the parents who are picking up to use the parking spaces in the parking lot. Therefore, you must use the drop off system when bringing your child to class. You are more than welcome to come back 15 minutes after you have dropped him/her off and after his/her class has started to park. This gives parents who are picking up their children from the previous class a parking spot to wait in until their children are ready to leave. If you give yourself AT LEAST 15 minutes after your child’s class has started before going back to the studio, the parking lot will have cleared out so that you will be able to find a place to park without traffic jams etc. At this time you are more than welcome to go in and watch class through the dance windows at each classroom.


FOR PICK UP

EVERY PARENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PARKING AND GOING INTO THE STUDIO TO PICK UP THEIR CHILD AT THE END OF THEIR DANCE CLASS or CLASSES.
FOR PARKING: When you get to AIM, enter through the side marked “ENTRANCE” and pull up all the way to the parking on the right side of the building – file in starting at the back and on up to the front. These places are not marked with lines but if you will fill in all the way to the back and up to the front this will allow for numerous families to have a parking place. Once the parking places on the right are completely taken (which go all the way up to the road), then you may use the parking places directly in front of the studio. These should be used last because these parents may get blocked in during drop-off time. Obviously, you will need to exit on the side marked “EXIT” as well. IF ALL SPACES ARE TAKEN, you may park to the left of the studio on the side street. No one will be using this street because there is nothing being used behind our building. And the business “Zone Computers” is closed later in the evening so you can probably park there if you needed to once their business hours say they have “closed” for that day.

DO NOT PARK IN THE FRONT ON THE FAR LEFT IN FRONT OF THE GREEN GARAGE DOOR. THIS AREA IS RESERVED FOR TEACHER/STAFF PARKING. DO NOT USE THE ENTRANCE/EXIT BY THE GARAGE DOOR EITHER – ONLY TO BE USED BY STAFF PARKING IN THESE PLACES.
