There have been a lot of changes to safety recommendations recently, and knowing the right thing to do is not always easy. The health and safety of our members, staff and community continues to be our top priority, and a responsibility we take seriously. We will continue to follow the latest recommendations from the CDC regarding the wearing of masks: if you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask at KidStrong*.
We trust our KidStrong families to follow the guidelines, and act responsibly, as you always have. We know you’re a smart bunch - after all, you are KidStrong members! We have no desire or intention to police your vaccination status. Our coaches will continue wearing masks until June 1, then will follow the same CDC guidelines as parents: coaches who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear a mask.
Current health and safety protocols:
Face coverings: If you are not yet vaccinated, or are more comfortable in a mask, please wear a mask. We will always respect your choice to do so!
Limiting capacity in-center: Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your class time. This helps us control traffic, and limit the number of people inside at one time.
Cleaning and sanitization: We will continue to have hand sanitizer available at our centers, and our coaches will continue to clean and disinfect equipment before, during, and after classes.
Make-up classes: Please stay home if your child is exhibiting symptoms of illness. We are happy to schedule a make-up class once they have recovered. Make-up classes are by reservation only, so please contact your Center Director to reserve your child’s spot.
We thank you for all of your support!
