In the event that a facility full closure is required, all regular classes will move to virtual programming and may include slight schedule changes. It is our intention to avoid any changes to the schedule wherever possible.
Cancelled Day Camps and single day workshops will be credited to accounts for future use.
Any programs that we can move to online in the event of a closure will be just so.
We understand that in these times, virtual alternatives are the best solution and thus remains our policy. We are happy to be able to offer continued activity to foster some level of normalcy for our members in the event of isolation/closure.
REOPENING AFTER A CLOSURE
Once given the green light to reopen, some time (1 to 2 weeks) may be required to prepare for reopening with any updates or changes to previous protocols to ensure the safety of all members and staff.
