Update COVID-19 Masks Requirements

COVID- 19

Student/Parent Code of Conduct

Cole Academy of Dance, Gymnastics & Cheerleading, Inc. 

In efforts to keep all of our students, staff, and families as safe as possible over the holidays, we have decided to update our policies until Christmas break. We will require masks in our facilities at all times for students ages 5 and older. Masks are strongly recommended for ages 4 and under. Many of our competitive programs have had similar policies in place but we are expanding this to our recreational classes as well as all competitive classes and practices.

We appreciate everyone being respectful of the masks coming in, leaving, and while in general areas but they will now be required to wear them during the entire time they are here. We have had a lot of success with our competitive students wearing masks most of the time. We keep a close eye on all cardiovascular activity and students are able to take “mask breaks” as long as they are far away from other students. This will be an added layer of protection to ensure that we all have the safest holiday season possible. We appreciate your continued support.

If you have questions, please email Audra by email at audra@coleacademy.com

COVID-19 Polices and Procedures
,

COVID- 19

Student/Parent Code of Conduct

Cole Academy of Dance, Gymnastics & Cheerleading, Inc. 

Safety is our top priority here at Cole Academy! We ask that everyone has a mask on during the check in process at both of our facilities for the safety of everyone involved with the process. It will still be optional for ages 2 and under. During check in, students have their temperature checked, recorded and given hand sanitizer before going to class and when leaving class. Below are additional procedures in place to ensure the safety of all families:

-Participants ages 8 and up should have a mask on while entering and exiting the buildings, using the restroom, and moving to another room within the building. The only time a mask is optional for ages 8 and up is when they are exerting themselves while in a class or practice. Please remind them to keep their 6 foot distance at all times, especially if not wearing a mask during exercise.

All coaches and instructors will be wearing masks. Cole Academy programs are operating in a social distancing environment but spotting will be part of the learning process especially when needed to be safe during class activities. Direct assistance will also be provided in the event of an injury.

-Reminder that only 1 adult per child ages 4 and under is allowed in the building. That adult must keep their mask on properly the entire time they are in the building. If you haven’t yet, feel free to take advantage of our free app so that you can watch your child from outside the building. Make sure that anyone registering for the app is listed as family on your account with Cole.

-We would like to strongly encourage all participants to wear a mask during their class or practice if possible. If you think your child can wear a mask while in practice or class, please have them do so. We want to keep our other students, families, and staff safe so wearing a mask is strongly preferred and recommended for as much time as possible.

If your child’s temperature is over 100*F, your child will not be permitted to stay for practice. Please disclose if your family has been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 in the last 14 days, as that would affect others that your child might be in class with. If anyone in the family has been exposed to Covid-19, please do not send them to class/practice at Cole Academy for the recommended quarantine time.

-Students traveling outside of Indiana must wear a mask for 2 weeks upon returning home. This includes during the entire class or practice. 

As always, if your child or anyone in your household is having any symptoms related to COVID-19, please stay home. Per the rules enforced at several schools in our area, if your child is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms please do not enter a Cole Academy facility until 5 days after symptoms have subsided. We appreciate our Cole families and want to say THANK YOU for all of your patience and understanding during this time.

For anyone questions, please contact Audra by email audra@coleacademy.com
