Parents are not to approach teachers or students during class and if messages or food/drink/medication needs to be passed on to a student, it must be done through a LT Dance Studio staff member. All parents must wait in the waiting areas or outside of the studios until classes have been dismissed.
* We are unable to take responsibility for our students before or after their scheduled classes and it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure their child is picked up and dropped off on time. In the case of an emergency or unavoidable delay, please contact the studio immediately to inform us of the situation so we can keep your child calm and safe until they can be collected.
* Any questions or concerns must be addressed through reception – parents and students are not permitted to contact LT Dance Studio teachers via phone, in person or via email / social networking with studio issues unless it has been broached with LT Dance Studio Owner and Director Bonnie first. Personal meetings with Bonnie can be arranged by appointment if necessary.

Should I register my dancer into a competitive class, I understand and agree to the following...
Good attendance is vital to the success and safety of our team and we rely on each and every one of our dancers and teachers to attend their scheduled classes and rehearsals on a regular basis.
Dance requires consistent ongoing training, and dancers who miss several classes due to illness, injury or any other reason will not be able to compete at the same level as those who have attended classes regularly.
I understand and recognize that I have a responsibility to myself as well as my teammates and teachers to regularly attend my scheduled classes.
I agree to attend all dance classes, rehearsals, competitions and performances associated with my competition class(es), be that virtually or in-person.
I understand that excess absences may result in my not being able to participate in an event or performance and that this decision will be made by the discretion of my teachers/choreographers and the Studio Owner.
Competition classes involve more time, effort and resources than our non-competitive classes. This includes, but is not limited to, competitions (venues, judges etc.), costumes, extra rehearsal time. Added fees are associated with these resources in order to give our dancers the best and safest experience possible.
I voluntarily agree, to assume responsibility for all payments and fees associated with competitions/festivals and preparations for such events, including but not limited to rehearsals, extra classes, costumes etc.
I understand and agree to pay all fees on time by the requested deadline.
I voluntarily agree, to proceed with payment in the event that an event is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, including but not limited to, by the event organizers, by LT Dance Studio staff, an act of God (i.e. tornado, flooding, blizzard etc.) or National/International crisis etc.
These protocols will be put into place in the event that it is necessary based on Covid-19 regulations in our public health district.
As the Authorized Signatory of the listed attending dancer,
I acknowledge the contagious nature of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and that the provincial health authorities still recommend practicing physical distancing.
I further acknowledge that LT Dance Studio has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19. I further acknowledge that LT Dance Studio cannot guarantee that I will not become infected with the Coronavirus/Covid-19. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to and/or infected by the Coronavirus/COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, event staff, theatre staff, volunteers, other performers, teachers, spectators, parents or members of the community and their families. I voluntarily seek services provided by LT Dance Studio and acknowledge that I am increasing my risk to exposure to the Coronavirus/COVID-19. I acknowledge that I must comply with all set procedures to reduce the spread while attending events.
Our COVID-19 Safety Plan and COVID-19 Policies and Procedures are available for your review in the parent portal, in our studio Golden Guide and posted at the physical studio. We have implemented our COVID-19 Safety Plan and will be applying our policies and procedures, but the risk remains that a COVID-19 outbreak could occur despite our best efforts. It is vital that no person who feels sick in any way visit any of our facilities and/or utilize any of our services.
We do not employ health professionals to physically conduct screening, so it is important that you self-screen prior to visiting our facilities. It is also vital that no person bring a child to any of our facilities if the child is feeling unwell or showing any symptoms of illness. Again, you must conduct self-screening.
For our camps and other programs for children, we will not be strictly enforcing physical distancing amongst the children. We will be reducing the number of children in each program compared to our standard practices. We will emphasize hygiene and provide for hand-washing as children begin and end their days in our programs. However, it is vital that children be permitted to play and this includes games where they will be in close proximity (i.e. use of playground equipment).
Please do not allow your child to participate in any of our activities or programs if your child has:
experienced cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 14 days
been in close contact with anyone else who has had these symptoms in the last 14 days;
travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days; or
been in close contact with anyone else who has travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days.
By signing this form, you understand and agree to the following:
I will screen my child and myself prior to attending the program and will report any illness or fever immediately to the Program Leader;
I understand that my child and myself may be screened for illness prior to being signed in for the program each day;
I understand that if my child is displaying symptoms of respiratory distress or illness, they will be asked not to participate;
I understand that if my child or myself have become ill within 14 days of visiting one of our facilities and/or while taking part in one of our programs, it is vital that I report this immediately to staff and seek appropriate medical attention by first calling 8-1-1. (We will share personal information for the purposes of contact tracing if the need arises);
I understand that any person who exhibits any aggression towards our staff or any other person in one of our facilities and/or programs will be asked to leave and not return; and
I agree to follow all guidelines set out in this form and understand that if I do not follow these guidelines I will be asked to leave and not return.
