Dear SAMPUL Families,

Last Friday LA County announced that due to a decline in cases, they will no longer require the wearing of masks in schools. As a studio with children under the age of 5 we are cautious of all and want to be sure there are several options in place for everyone. We are going to highly recommend masks inside the studio but they will no longer be mandated. This updated policy is effective March 12,2022.

Every day that we can get where children can fully express themselves in the classroom and teachers can have full communication, including facial cues, we will celebrate! And, if there are days ahead where cases rise to a point where we have to revisit our mask policy, we will do so.

In meantime, all other risk-mitigating factors remain in place and parents are asked to keep their children home if they do not feel well and to keep up with other healthy habits such as good hand hygiene, hydration, nutrition, and sleep. Anyone who would still like to wear a mask to class for comfort is welcome to do so.

We will slowly transition into having an open lobby for those who wish to stay but ask that only one parent per student in the facility at a time, as it can get a bit overcrowded.

I want to thank our faculty, families, and students for their support. Working together, we have kept dancing and tumbling  continuously since June of 2020 and we are working on our return to the stage at Burbank High for our June Recital! Now that’s some awesome teamwork!

Thank you for your support!

With appreciation, 

Ms.Samantha
