MERCURY 2021 GUIDELINES
The health and well-being of our students and families continues to be our FIRST priority. I would like to share our guidelines for our preschool gymnastics, boys and girls school age gymnastics, tumbling, cheer, tramp & tumbling, our pre-competitive gymnastics programs and our boys and girls competitive gymnastics team.
Mercury Gymnastics has followed the Kansas City, MO guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, Mayor Lucas has reinstated the indoor mask mandate that will go into effect on Monday, August 2nd. This mandate is for all persons 5 years of age and older regardless of their vaccination status.
Effective Monday, August 2nd: Anyone 5 years of age and older, entering Mercury Gymnastics must wear a mask at all times.
DROP OFF PROCEDURES:
On the preschool, school age, tumbling, tramp & tumbling, cheer and pre-competitive gymnastics side - family members or family friends will be allowed into the gym to view class. Please do not enter the gym until at least 5 minutes after your child’s class start time. This allows us to get all students check in and downstairs for class. All adults must remain on the purple bleachers.
We will have a drop off car loop at the main front entry doors. Parents will just need to pull to the yellow curb in front of the building. This will be monitored by a Mercury staff member making sure that when your gymnast exits the car they will be guided safely into Mercury front foyer doors. Please try to be 5 minutes early to drop off your gymnast before their class.
Competitive teams will follow the same drop off and pick up procedures which were implemented during the past year.
GYMNAST CHECK IN & CLASS PROCEDURES:
Your child will be greeted at the car by a Mercury staffer.
Upon entering, your gymnast will check in, take off shoes and be guided to their coaches table for class.
All boys and girls will need to bring a labeled water bottle. Unfortunately our concession stand will remain closed for the time being.
Each coach will have tissues, hand sanitizer and a bottle of EDC disinfectant that they will be responsible for cleaning equipment and mats when needed. As a team, we are still working on the best possible night time sanitizing after everyone has exited the building. All our disinfectants are EDC approved to kill not only the COVID virus but any other virus out there. We will also have our nightly cleaning crew each night.
PICK UP PROCEDURES:
At the end of practice, coaches will check gymnasts out release them to families at the Southwest exit door on the front of the building. We are asking anyone viewing a class to please exit the building a few minutes before class is over so that you are ready to collect your gymnast when they exit. Please be ready for your child’s exit by standing on a purple star with your child’s name card.
