What if my child does not need to be picked up from school?
If your child does not need to be transported from school, you must notify the front desk by 1 p.m. each day. If your child will be routinely absent one day a week for activities such as tutoring, school plays, etc., inform the front desk of the day and duration. This will alleviate the necessity of calling each week. We ask you to do this so we can better ensure the safety of the children riding the bus. FAILURE TO NOTIFY ASI WILL RESULT IN A $10.00 FEE. There are no refunds for absenteeism.
What is the policy when my child is sick?
If your child has any of the following symptoms, he/she will not be allowed to attend ASI until the symptoms and/or fever have been gone for at least 24 hours.
- Upper respiratory
- Or other major illness
If your child is required to quarantine from school for a designated time, they will not be allowed to attend ASI during the specified period. If your child exhibits signs of illness in GAS, we will call you or another authorized person to pick up your child within one hour from the time we contact you. We cannot release your child to anyone other than a parent or an authorized person.
Can my child do her homework while attending the Gymnastics After School Program?
Yes. Each day children will be given a 30-minute break. During this time, every child is given the opportunity to pick their activity, including homework, read, draw/color or play board games.
Does ASI offer my child an after school snack?
Yes. We offer a small water bottle and individual pre-packaged snack after school for each child. Your child may also bring a drink or snack from home.
What happens when there is no school?
GAS will be closed on school holidays or teacher in-service days. However, ASI offers Camp for your child to attend. Camp days are divided into 2 sessions. The morning session is from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and the afternoon session is from 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
For GAS students, all morning Camp sessions during the school year will be issued to you at a 20% discount. However, you must still pre-register for Camp ahead of time. Holiday camp sessions are neither transferable nor refundable.
Afternoon Camp sessions are offered at no additional cost for the specific days your child attends GAS. For the days your child does not attend GAS, Camp will be issued to you at a 20% discount. However, you must still pre-register for Camp ahead of time. Holiday camp sessions are neither transferable nor refundable.
For example Susie attends GAS every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the school year. She wants to attend Holiday Camp Monday-Friday. For every morning session that week, Susie will get a 20% discount on each session. Susie will then attend Camp for FREE in the afternoons on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Because Susie doesn’t attend GAS on Tuesday and Thursday, Susie will receive a 20% discount on the Tuesday and Thursday afternoon Camp sessions.
How does ASI discipline?
At ASI Gymnastics, discipline consists of positive reinforcement, redirection and time out. Our discipline will be individualized and will be appropriate of each child’s age. We do not believe in humiliating, ridiculing, rejecting or yelling at a child. We never allow physical punishment under any circumstance. All behavioral/ and or safety issues will be communicated with the parent at the time of pick up and documented in the family account.
What should my child wear during Gymnastics After School?
Each child should bring a pair of gym shorts and a t-shirt to wear every day. Gym attire is safer for the children and they will be much more comfortable. Children dressed in street clothes (jeans, skirts, tights – anything with zippers, snaps, buttons) will not be permitted to use any gym equipment, including trampolines and mats. Children will be asked to remove shoes and socks when entering the gym area. This safety requirement alleviates slips and falls. Gym socks with rubber grippers on the bottom will be allowed for children with medical issues.
Is a gymnastics class included in Gymnastics After School?
No. However, transport and non-transport will receive a discount on tuition. This does not apply to drop-in.
What if my child attends Gymnastics After School and is on Team ASI?
ASI Team tuition will not be discounted for students enrolled in Gymnastics After School. However, if the student is enrolled in a second recreational class, the discount for Gymnastics After School students will be applied.
Does ASI offer a sibling discount for Gymnastics After School?
Unfortunately, we do not offer a sibling discount for Gymnastics After School students. We do offer a sibling discount for gymnastics class tuition. See the front kiosk to enroll!
What is the preferred method of communication?
Please make sure we have your email address on file as we use it as a form of communication.
My child takes medication every day, what is ASI’s policy for this?
For the safety of your child, we cannot dispense medication without a signed Medical Authorization Form. See the front desk for the appropriate medication forms. All medication must be in the original container. Over-the-counter medication will never be dispensed to children.
In case of injuries and emergencies, what policies does ASI follow?
At ASI Gymnastics, we make every effort to assure your child’s safety, though we cannot guarantee that accidents will not occur. In case of a serious accidental injury, you will be contacted immediately. If you cannot be reached, we will call the authorized person you have indicated on the Enrollment Form to make medical emergency decisions about your child. A signed emergency medical release is necessary to ensure prompt medical attention. If we cannot reach anyone, your child will be transported to the nearest hospital of your choice, and recommendations of the attending physician will be followed. ASI will have a designated person stay with your child until you arrive.
What is the safety policy while transporting my child from school to ASI?
All children transported by ASI Gymnastics must adhere to safety rules. Children must remain seated, wear a seatbelt, and follow the staff’s directions at all times. Because of our safety requirements, any violation of this transportation policy may result in the restriction of your child riding in the vehicle. Because of the seriousness of our safety concerns, we will notify parents immediately of any discipline problems that occur in our vehicles. In an effort to alleviate the spread of COVID 19 and protect our students and staff, children will be required to wear a mask while being transported from the school to the gym. If they forget to bring their mask, ASI will provide them with one.
Can parents stay and observe?
Parents are always welcome to observe our daily activities with supervision. Please note, due to COVID, we will only allow one parent per child to observe each day and no siblings. We are happy to talk to you about the policies and procedures of ASI Gymnastics. If there are any concerns or questions, please make an appointment with the front desk.
