COVID-19 Updates At Barron
APRIL UPDATE & MORE – Published On March 31, 2020
Dear Barron Families,
We miss all of you so much! We just wanted to send an update about our status in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently our facility is closed due the stay-at-home order for St. Louis County in place through April 30th. While we hope to be able to resume in May, this is an ever changing and unprecedented situation. Barron will remain closed until restrictions have been lifted and it is deemed safe enough to resume classes and activities.
During our closure, we will not be charging tuition. Once we are able to resume, we will notify our families via email and provide notice that tuition will be charged.
We encourage you to choose your summer class time to continue their learning and progress. Check out our wide variety of classes, themed camps, tumbling clinics, and Ninja Thursdays that are offered over the summer at www.barrongymnastics.com! As a reminder, class tuition is on hold and will not be charged until we resume.
In the meantime, follow our Facebook and Instagram pages for creative ideas to bring Barron Gymnastics into your home with Barron Virtual Academy, an online learning platform for our students that provides videos from your teachers, updates and much more to stay connected!
During this pause period, our facility is closed. Please email us at [email protected] if you need anything and allow extra time for a response.
We sincerely hope all of our families are staying well, and we can’t wait to see you again!
TUITION UPDATE – Published on Tuesday, March 17
Dear Barron Families,
Thank you for your support during this difficult time. It is heartbreaking for us not to see the smiles, hear the laughter in the gym, and most of all not be able to teach your children to grow and learn through this amazing sport.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
MARCH – Current students have automatically had make-up classes added to their family’s account for missed classes during the pause for the month of March.
EXCLUSIVE MAKE-UP OPTIONS FOR CURRENT STUDENTS – We are providing the lessons you deserve and flexibility for your family to be able to schedule your make-ups when we resume classes:
- Make-up in another class day and time provided you are a current student.
- Mix-up Make-up – School-age students will have the unique opportunity to be able to make-up in any other programs. Example – A beginner girl gymnastics student can make-up in a beginner trampoline and tumbling program.
- Open Gym Make-Up Pass – Under any terms, these passes do not expire and can be transferred to another child.
APRIL – You are at no financial risk for April tuition. We will guarantee your child’s class spot with no charge to you until you are notified via email of the date that we are able to resume classes.
We appreciate your continued support during this difficult time and look forward to welcoming you back to Barron in the near future. During this pause we will not have set office hours and we encourage our loyal customers to contact us via email at [email protected] and check your email and social media for updates.
PAUSING OPERATIONS IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19 – Published on Sunday, March 15
Dear Barron Gymnastics Families:
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak across the globe, we made the decision to pause operations at Barron Gymnastics beginning Monday, March 16. We are automatically adding make-up days to every family’s account for the duration of this pause and will handle the scheduling of all individual make-ups and other administrative challenges once we resume operations. We will be offering another make-up opportunity that includes instructional classes in addition to our current open gym option. During this pause we will continue to hold your class spot.
This pause currently includes all programs held at Barron Gymnastics.
Barron Gymnastics has made the decision out of an abundance of caution and to help protect our families, guests, and staff. Our goal is to be part of the solution in our local community by helping reduce the spread of COVID-19. Please check your email and social media frequently for updates on when we will resume operations, as our goal is to resume our programming as soon as possible.
During this pause, Barron Gymnastics teachers and customer service will continue to perform administrative duties, continued education, and cleaning of our facility. Barron Gymnastics will continue to pay and offer benefits to our valued staff during this time without requiring them to use vacation or sick time.
We will continue to carefully monitor and reassess the situation, and provide another update by Thursday, March 19th.
We appreciate your continued support during this difficult time and look forward to welcoming you back to Barron in the near future. During this pause we will not have set office hours and we encourage our loyal customers to contact us via email at [email protected]
