Please be considerate of the health of classmates and Instructors. In order to ward off an “epidemic” during cold and flu season, please give your child adequate time to recover from an illness before returning to class. Classes are physically demanding and partial participation is not as beneficial as taking an alternate make-up class when the student is fully recovered. Students who show symptoms of severe and/or contagious illness will not be allowed to take class and will be isolated and sent home. Please make sure that the School has your updated contact information.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated as we combine our efforts to combat influenza and other transmissible illnesses. We ask you, as a parent, to assist in our efforts to keep the flu and other illnesses from spreading by following these guidelines:
Parents should monitor their students for any signs of illness and keep students with influenza-like symptoms (fever with a cough or sore throat) or signs of other infectious illness (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, draining wound) at home.
Any time a child has symptoms such as fever with cough, vomiting or diarrhea they should be kept at home and not sent to dance class until those symptoms have been absent for at least 24 hours.
If students have symptoms of illness, they will not be allowed to attend classes without a medical evaluation and a doctor’s note.
Please note: Necessary absence due to illness will not be counted against Spring Showcase or Spring Collection cast members.
During inclement weather, the Louisville Ballet School will generally close when Jefferson County Public Schools classes are cancelled. However, we will not always adhere to Jefferson County Schools closures, since afternoon weather and driving conditions can differ considerably from early morning conditions. Please call 583-3150, ext. 245, check the school Facebook page and website for the most up-to-date announcements related to School closings. Also, make sure you have signed up for our Text Alert system as we will use this service to provide urgent class closure information.
