Dear Rising Stars Families,
We hope all of our families are staying safe and remaining optimistic. Our students and families’ health and well-being continues to be our first-priority. Our staff is working hard to prepare the gym for reopening when it is safe and when we are permitted to do so. We very much look forward to reconnecting with everyone and we are optimistic that we will emerge from this stronger than ever.
We would like to share with you our plans for reopening. Due to the impact of COVID-19, we recognize there are many new procedures required to conform to social distancing requirements and the need to maintain high cleanliness standards.
The attached document lays out the tentative protocol that will be in place upon reopening. It prioritizes the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. They are subject to change as we move forward in this environment. As we get more direction from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), necessary changes will be sent to you. Our Reopening Protocol has been thoughtfully developed in collaboration with the MN State Gymnastics Board.
During Phase I, we will start with a small number of athletes (JO & Xcel gymnasts) and then in Phases II and III, we will include more athletes (Progressive and Preschool students) and increase the allowed capacity. We will get schedules out to families as soon as they are finalized.
While we are confident in our safety precautions, we want to be clear that if any family does not feel comfortable returning, we understand and will work with them individually.
Although we do not know the exact start date of implementing this plan, it is our goal to be as transparent as possible as we return to the gym. To accomplish this, we will continue to communicate with you frequently with updates via email and on our website and Facebook.
We look forward seeing our families and athletes, again, in a safe gym environment!
Pavel & Elena
