Updated Class Procedures
Updated for the Summer of 2020 - COVID-19 RESPONSE
These procedures below may be changed or added to at any time as the situation evolves.
We want parents to know that we are taking everyones health and safety seriously in this time of uncertainty. What follows are the steps we are taking to help insure the safety of our students, parents, guardians, and staff.
At EMPORIA we will be having everyone enter at the EAST door and exiting at the WEST door of our gym. This will allow us to practice good social distancing.
At BURLINGTON we will be having everyone enter at the SOUTH door and exiting through the NORTH door of our gym. This will allow us to practice good social distancing.
We will be monitoring all staff members temperatures for several hours before classes are starting. We will continue to monitor staff temperatures before and after all classes at our gyms. If a staff member is found to have a temperature, they will be unable to work on that day. This may cause some interruption in our usual schedule if we are unable to find a sub.
BRING YOUR OWN WATER
All students and staff will need to bring their own drinking water. Bottles with squirt lids or other easy drinking no-spill options are preferred. ONLY WATER will be allowed in the gym area. Sports drinks and others of that type can stain equipment.
Only 1 parent/guardian per student may be in the gym with the student. This means that siblings that normally would be waiting in the waiting area will need to have other arrangements made.
REDUCED CLASS SIZES
There are some classes that will need to have their class sizes reduced in order to practice good social distancing.
At both locations, equipment that has been used by the athlete will be disinfected between rotations when possible.
EVERY CLASS DAY
At both locations, the entire gym will be cleaned and disinfected after that days classes conclude.
EMPORIA - Everyone must enter through the EAST door (this door is on the opposite side of our gym from our 'front door').
BURLINGTON - Everyone must enter through the SOUTH door (this is the door off of the parking lot in back, our usual entrance).
Everyone will have their temperature taken with a "NO CONTACT" thermometer. Anyone with a temperature over 100.3 degrees will be not be allowed in the gym or parents area.
EMPORIA - Everyone will wash their hands in the Birthday Party room and practice social distancing while waiting for class to begin.
BURLINGTON - Everyone will wash their hands in the bathroom and practice social distancing while waiting for class to begin.
During stretching and classes, students will be practicing social distancing with the guidance of our staff.
