Health Policy

Cleanliness Policy

Here at Athens Clarke Gymnastics Academy we pledge to have an environment that is healthy, safe, and clean. We disinfect our mats and toys daily. We also have the carpet on our floor exercise area cleaned and disinfected after each session. We ask our staff and participants to help us keep our environment healthy by washing their hands before each class.

Illness Policy

We ask our parents to keep their children at home if they experience any of the following symptoms:

  • They have remained home from school or they have been sent home from school due to illness
  • They are running a fever (child must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to gymnastics)
  • They have a runny nose (regardless of the color of the discharge)
  • They have anything contagious and could pose a risk of infecting others
  • They have been exposed to anything contagious
  • They have a severe cough
  • They have open, runny wounds on feet, legs, or hands

We also teach our students to cough into their elbows rather than their hands.

Injury Policy
If a student is under the care of a physician for an injury or illness, we must receive a written release from the physician before the student will be allowed to return to class.

If your child becomes sick with a contagious illness and/or infection immediately after attending a class, please contact the gymnastics office at 706-613-3589 ext. 225 and notify us so we may notify the parents of children in your child's class. We also ask that parents not bring sick siblings to class.
