SAFETY: No parents are allowed in the gym area, unless authorized by the office. There is a viewing area for all observers. Absolutely no students are allowed in the gym until their class starts. If your child is caught playing on the equipment or is in the gym without the supervision of a American Flips Kids Gymnastics employee, your child will be asked to wait in the waiting area. I, as a parent or guardian, understand that any injuries that occur before or after class time due to my negligence are my responsibility and American Flips Kids Gymnastics cannot be held accountable.
PARENTS: All students are to be picked up/dropped off by the entrance to the gym. All viewing is to be done in the front gym, or on the benches in the waiting area. Students must be picked up on time, as they are not supervised once class is over.
ATTENDANCE: Please be on time! Because warm-ups are essential to student's safety and they are done at the beginning of class. As a safety procedure, children arriving after warm-ups (15 minutes late) may be asked to warm up on their own.
Note: For health reasons, please ensure your children wash/sanitize their hands before and after
class. Please do not send a child with any contagious conditions to a class or activity. (Bad cold, lice, skin disorder, etc.) In addition, all wounds on participants should be covered with fresh bandages when participating.

BEHAVIOUR: For our beginning level students, socialization is as much a part of the experience as learning new skills. Students will be learning how to conduct themselves in a class setting. These skills are critical in order to facilitate a smooth-running and safe environment for all students. To
reduce disruptions, please attend to your child’s toileting needs before class begins.
FOOD OR DRINK: Absolutely no food, chewing gum, candy or drinks are allowed in the Gym or Tumbling classroom. You may bring water in a spill-proof container.
