Fall Classes & Updated COVID-19 Policy

Our Fall classes start August 22, 2022. All classes are full at this time, but the waitlist are open. If we have any openings become available throughout the fall (September – December) parents will be contacted through those waitlists. The updated COVID-19 policy is below.

Dear Southeast Alaska Gymnastics Academy families, 

As you know may have seen and heard the CDC has updated their policies again as of August 11, 2022.  As a private business we can decide how to move safely forward with these new CDC guidelines.  We are reaching out today to discuss what that means for SAGA.  

In alignment with recent updates masks will be optional for everyone entering our facility.  We know there are strong feelings at both ends of the spectrum on this topic, and that there is not a solution that will satisfy every person. But we are committed to keeping SAGA a safe, comfortable place for all our kids and families.

Please take the time to read through the key changes at SAGA, beginning August 22, 2022, including current protocols that will remain in place or change slightly:

  • Masks will be optional for gymnasts, coaches and spectators. That said, everyone at SAGA is expected to treat others with respect and kindness at all times, and this extends to mask choice. We will not tolerate bullying of any kind in regards to another person’s choice to or not to mask.  
  • Exceptions to mask requirements: Any person that has been exposed to COVID-19, but is negative and not exhibiting any symptoms, will be required to wear a well-fitted mask for 10 days. If an exposure happens in the gym, everyone in the exposed group will also be required to wear well-fitting masks for 10 days following the exposure.  
  • Hand sanitizer will continue to be conveniently located throughout our facility
  • Sick or symptomatic individuals (staff, gymnasts and family members) are required to stay home until symptoms resolve and/or a negative test is received.  
  • No active cough
  • No fever in the last 48 hours
  • We will continue to actively maintain distance between gymnasts, as much as possible.
  • We will still conduct contact tracing within our facility. Please continue to inform us if your child is COVID-19 positive or has had a close exposure. Any positive gymnast needs to remain at home for a minimum of ten and can return on day 11 with no symptoms.

Keeping our facility safely open for in-person programming is our top priority and an outbreak, which could cause our facility to close, becomes more likely with increased non-masking capacity.  Thank you for your attention to our updated policies. We are looking forward to a safe progression into the future.
