Dear Jump Start Gymnastics Families,
The health and well-being of our students, families and employees has been and continues to be our first priority. We feel we have gone above and beyond in our efforts to allow children to participate in our programs and activities safely while effectively mitigating the risk of transmission of COVID-19. Despite our efforts, the state Tier 3 mitigations announced yesterday include the "pause of all indoor sporting and recreational activities including youth and adult recreational sports". In compliance with these new restrictions, we will be closing our facility effective this Friday, November 20th, 2020 until further notice. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday class students who have remaining classes in the current payment cycle will receive a second email with how these classes will be handled in light of the closure.
At this moment, we are not able to give you an exact date for our reopening. As such, we have no plans to charge for December classes and activities. We look forward to reopening as soon as restrictions and guidelines relax. Until then, please check emails often for updates on this situation.
If you feel Jump Start is offering a safe environment for your child during this pandemic and you would like to see them continue and our facility to remain open, there is an organized state effort by industry representatives to plead with elected officials to find a solution to keep kids in the gym and active. We are asking parents to do whatever they can to assist us. The most effective way to help is to call or email your elected state representatives. Tell them why your child needs to be active during this time and how our program is benefiting them. If you feel compelled to join our efforts and help us reopen sooner than later, please contact one or all of the following individuals.
- Darin LaHood 309-671-7027
- Dave Koehler 309-677-0120
- Bill Brady 309-664-4440
If we don't see you again until after the holidays, please stay safe and healthy and have a blessed holiday season.
Dawn Kocher, President
