Keep up with what's going on at CATTS!

Drop off & Pick Up Procedures
- Please drop off your student at the concrete pad where they will be asked to wait on the socially distanced markings to enter the building through the main door. In the event of inclement weather, form a drop off line and have your child wait in the car with you, a teacher will wave you in.
- If you are planning to stay in the parking lot, please go back around the loop and park along the West side of the parking lot. At the end of class, go around the loop again to form a pick up line near the side bay door.
- Please have your child “gymnastics ready”, this means hair pulled up, leotard on, flip flops or easy on/off shoes, and be sure to have them visit the restroom at home before class to limit the need for restroom use during class.
- The water fountain will be off limits, except to refill water bottles so please send your child with their own water bottle, clearly marked with their name.
- Students will be allowed to have 1 parent (no siblings) to enter with them, but both parent and student will have their temperature screened and must wash hands before entering the class. The parent will be encouraged to wear a mask while in the building. Due to the small size of our lobby, we will be moving preschool groups to the big gym when possible, and parents may view from socially distanced seating upstairs (limit 10).

- Upon entering the building, your child will have their temperature screened, they will wash hands, and put their water bottle and any belongings in a designated spot or cubby. If cubbies are used, they will be sanitized between classes.
- At the end of class students will all be required to wash their hands, they will gather their belongings and exit out the side door.

During Class
- Students will warm up on socially distanced spots, no large group running style warm ups will be performed.
- During rotations, each child will have their own space to perform the skills they are working on during their class. Any mats used will be sanitized between classes.
 - Due to the nature of some of the gymnastics equipment (bars and beam), we will promptly wash hands after using any equipment which may not allow for between student sanitation. We have spread out our classes to allow for cleaning time in between classes, and our rotation schedules will be designed to allow for sanitization between groups. We will still require hand washing after events like bars and beam to err on the side of caution.


Important Points
- Our staff has worked hard to ensure the safety of our athletes, our staff and all of their families so we ask for your compliance in all of our new procedures.
BE PUNCTUAL - It is highly important that you be on time when picking up your child. We will have a staff member waiting with the children to ensure their safety when exiting the building, but this staff member will also have other obligations in between classes so we need you to be on time to keep the gym schedule running smoothly.
- If the student or anyone in their family has been ill or is presenting symptoms of Covid-19, we ask that you keep your student home from class. The same will be asked if you have traveled to an area with high community spread determined by the local and state health departments.

September 2020

FALL SCHEDULE:  The Fall/Spring Schedule is underway!  Welcome to all the new families in our program.  We are glad you joined us!  We are doing all we can to try and keep the kids safe.  With schools opening back up I know our chances become greater for the spread of Covid-19 so please don't enter our facility if you are showing any signs of those symptoms.

FACILITY RULES:  We are asking all adults to wear masks when entering our facility.  You will need a temp check the same as our students.  You are allowed to take your mask off ONLY when you are seated in your socially distanced chair.  Please don't stand around upstairs and when possible leave younger siblings at home.  If there isn't a seat available you may watch from the side door outside or please sit in your car until one opens.  Please help us by continuing to clorox wipe your chairs when you are leaving so it is sanitized for the next person.  This does help us to continue to teach classes and focus on the students and we appreciate that. 

EXITING FACILITY :  We have a sign posted on the gym door that tells the class whether to put their items in the lobby or gym.  Lobby students exit out the front door, Gym students exit out the back side door.  We ask that you help with this by leaving the gym if you are watching and meet them at the back side door.  Please do not have them come back through the lobby and go upstairs if they are to exit out the back side.  Continue to bring water bottles.  Thank you. 

UPCOMING CLOSINGS: CATTS is closed for Labor Day.  Monday Sept 7, 2020.  We will also be closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday November 26, 2020 and Christmas Break Dec 24-Jan 3. 

WEBSITE:  Please check the calendar on the website if you are ever questioning our dates of closure.  The website also can be a place to make your monthly payment instead of entering the facility with cash, check or card.  Under the "classes" tab at the top of the page there is a "pay online" tab and that guides your to our payment portal.

COMPETITION NEWS:  As of right now they are preparing as we are going to have a season.  The CBC officers, Annie and I will meet and get info out to you by the end of September.  


On a personal note, as I try to keep that part of my life separate I will be MIA for the next week and a half.  My brother in law has passed away from his battle with Mesothelioma and we are headed to Texas and then I already had a previously scheduled trip to Florida to visit my youngest son who moved there in June.  I will do my best to keep up with emails and calls but please understand if I am not on my "A" game.  I have plenty of staff that have been with CATTS for a long time and I know they can hold down the fort in my absence.
