We encourage parents to stay and watch classes from the viewing room. Please ensure that younger siblings are safely in the viewing room at all times.
If your student is comfortable, you may run an errand if you remain available to be reached by phone. Parents are not allowed on the floor, please refrain from speaking to your child when they are in class.
Please remove coats and shoes in the cubby room. Students need to wait in the viewing room for their instructor to take roll. We recommend that all students use the restroom prior to class.
Students are NOT allowed to practice their skills at this time. At class time, instructors will greet students, take roll and lead their students on to the gym floor. ONLY students registered in class and under instruction are allowed beyond the viewing room or on the equipment.
Gymnastics classes begin with a warm-up. The warm-up may include running and jumping and stretching at any of the different equipment areas. After warm-ups the gymnasts will rotate through the various gymnastics events. Instructors will provide for water breaks accordingly.
Upon completion of the class, the students will be returned to the viewing room. Please be prompt when picking up your student at the end of class. We prefer that adults come into the gym for pick up. We are unable to monitor your child outside of the building.
If you have any questions about the class, please stop by our office to speak with instructor or to schedule a meeting with the student's instructor.
IF YOU MISS YOUR REGULAR SCHEDULED CLASS
We do not offer make up classes.
If your student misses their regularly scheduled class they can come to an Open Gym on a Saturday from 9 AM- 11 AM at no charge. IGA does not prorate for missed classes or vacations. Unused classes may not be applied toward tuition payments.
If the Astoria School District is closed due to weather, morning class will be canceled. We will notify you by 1:00pm if the afternoon classes will resume as scheduled via email. On the Oregon Coast, the weather in the afternoon is often times drastically different from the morning. We are only closed for major holidays and do not follow Astoria for other school closures.
