HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
It is our mission to create a fun and safe environment for our students. To help ensure your heath and safety, we are asking you to consider the following guidelines.
Please perform a quick temperature check for your child before coming to
class. If their temperature is 100 degrees or higher, please stay home.
You are always welcome to schedule a makeup lesson for a later date.
When to wear a face mask:
- When dropping off and picking up your child
- While waiting in the lobby, if it is crowded and physical distancing isn’t possible
- Instructors will wear a face covering at all times
- Students are not required to wear a face mask while dancing
If you prefer not to wait in the lobby during class or have errands to run, simply check your dancer in with their teacher and return before class is over.
We will revisit these guidelines often and let you know if anything changes. Thank you for helping us stay safe and protecting the vulnerable among our families.
