Although we are operating with fewer restrictions than last year, we are setting limits for the maximum number of students allowed in each class. These will be based on about a 30% reduction from our pre-pandemic limits for each age group. Given this, it is more important than ever to be sure to reserve the appropriate classes for your kids.
Please remember that class reservations are made on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Waiting lists will be generated for classes exceeding their limit. Students who are not able to attend their preferred classes are encouraged to choose alternative times until space opens up in their preferred classes.
Parents can choose to reserve classes for their kids in any of the following ways:
¨ By speaking to someone directly at the front desk
¨ By sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
¨ By calling us at 413-637-0656
We are also in the process of setting up an online link for this and will make that available as soon as we can. Once set up we will send a separate email with a link on our website where parents can indicate their class choices.
Please remember that class reservations will only be effective with an active student enrollment. Reservations for students who are not currently enrolled must be accompanied with tuition payment to restart the student’s membership. Also remember that ‘Partial Participation’ discounts are reserved for students age eight years old and younger.
With some lingering affects from the pandemic, we are continuing to exercise caution in the gym. This includes face coverings, sanitizing, extra cleaning, and ‘respectful distancing’. As always we ask that any student who suspects that they may have been exposed to the coronavirus, is experiencing symptoms, or has travelled to an area with high rates of transmission withdraw from attending classes until they are certain that they are not infected with the disease.
Over the last eighteen months many children have been faced with reduced activities, sports and socialization. Children CAN reap the benefits of physical activity and socialization though, with the proper structure and safety precautions. At ZenQuest we have worked hard to strike a balance between safety and intelligent training for our students during the unprecedented challenges we’ve all seen recently.
Current class schedules are available electronically upon request, and hard copies are at the front desk. We don’t expect any changes to the children’s classes at this time. Once the class lists and waiting lists are generated we will look at possible adjustments to the schedule to accommodate as many students as we can.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns going forward. We will look forward to another great season of fun and learning at the oldest and best martial arts school in the Berkshires!!
