NEWSFLASH- PLEASE DON’T BE LATE!!
WE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH MAY CAUSE DELAY BUT....
PLEASE DON’T BE LATE ARRIVING FOR YOUR CLASS!
THERE ARE 10 mins PRIOR TO YOUR CLASS FOR REGISTRATION AND SHOE CHANGE
- PLEASE FACTOR THIS INTO YOUR TIMETABLE.
ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BE IN CLASS, READY TO START, AT THEIR DESIGNATED CLASS TIME.
IF YOU ARE LATE, THERE MAY BE NO ENTRY TO CLASS.
We have to look on this coming term as an ‘emergency’ term, with many changes to the Saturday timetable, brought about by adherence to constraints of COVID safety measures.
We have to factor in time taken by entrances, exits, cleaning, sanitizing, marshalling, single toilet use and other issues, so we must all do our best to accommodate.
We CANNOT alter classes for friendship/peer group requests at the moment. Restrictions in room capacities make this impossible.
You will see that classes have had to be shortened, but will be more intensive with the smaller groupings, but will only work optimally if dancers arrive on time and ready to work.
Some classes will be supplemented by online classes.
PLEASE READ OUR RISK ASSESSMENT DOCUMENT soon to be available on website/Facebook, to familiarise yourself with our current policies and measures.
We MUST be in possession of each pupil’s parent/guardian contact details including email and home address before any pupil can attend classes.
