Policies & Procedures for the Return of our Students During Covid-19
The health and safety of our gymnasts is our top priority. When we begin to return to the gym during Covid-19, every decision, policy, and procedure we make will be made for the safety, health and well being of our gymnasts, staff, and families.
Everything about Covid-19, it’s spread, state, government guidelines and social responses seem to be constantly changing. Our return plan and procedures will be based on the regulations put forth by the CDC, State of New York, NYS Gymnastics and USA Gymnastics.
One thing we have learned in our communication with our families is that we are all navigating this situation the best we can, each of us has had to find a unique plan that works for us and our family.
At Tumble Bee Gym we will be doing everything we can to meet and exceed local, state and federal guidelines. While we will try our best to create the safest environment for everyone, we do respect the decision of those who may choose to delay their return.
In the interest of protecting the health and safety of the children entrusted to our care, Tumble Bee Gym will be implementing all of the following policies and procedures for our re-opening post Covid-19.
We All Must Do Our Part
Due to the nature of how viruses spread, we all must do our part to support a healthy, safe environment for all. Maintaining a healthy, safe environment is going to take work and cooperation from our staff, gymnasts, and parents. We ask that every family does their part by practicing good personal hygiene, following the policies and procedures set forth and being kind, patient and supportive of each other. It is important to remember, that this is a difficult, unprecedented and challenging time for all of us.
Responsible for ensuring our facility policies are being executed, they are also responsible for the guidelines outside of work, their own health, and their travel and leisure activities.
Responsible for following the guidelines, helping support their classmates/teammates and by following all directions given by staff to ensure a low-risk environment for all.
Responsible for making sure your family is practicing good hygiene, following all policies, and helping our staff with your patience, support, and dutifulness as we return.
We have created a customized and comprehensive set of policies and procedures with four phases of reopening. Each phase has different amounts of precaution and risk management. Our RED PHASE will begin on July 6th. The dates for our Orange, Yellow and Green phases will be announced soon. While our goal is to return to ‘the new normal’ as soon as possible for all of our students, we will not put them at unnecessary risk or in a program we do not find reasonable at this time.
**All Phases and Class Levels Subject to Change Without Notice!**
Our Approach To Re-Opening
While we cannot both be open to the public and also prevent 100% of all germs from spreading, we are proud and confident in the policies and procedures we have put in place that meet or exceed all physical-distancing and personal hygiene standards recommended by the CDC and the State of New York. At this time, it is necessary to limit in-person viewing. Due to the the restrictions placed on Tumble Bee Gym by the New York State Department of Health and our commitment to safety the following policies and procedures will be in place for our re-opening.
If you can say NO to all of these questions, we will be happy to have you in class today!
For these precautions to be as effective as possible, it will require the support and participation of the entire Tumble Bee Gym community. Maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all of our students and families is going to take work and cooperation from our staff, students, and parents. We need every family to do their part to practice good hygiene, follow our policies and procedures, and be patient and supportive of our gymnasts and coaches during this time. This is a stressful, unprecedented, and challenging situation for all of us. It is important to remember we all share the same goal, a safe return of our children’s lives to a sense of normalcy.
TOGETHER WE CAN STAY HEALTHY!
