Dear TIGAR Family Member,
Thank you for being an active member with TIGAR Gymnastics and Cheer. We value your membership and hope to provide you with constant communication through email, handouts, newsletters, and so much more! Here is the breakdown for Thanksgiving and Christmas closures.
Gym Closures/Holidays/Inclement Weather:
Because we have children attending from many different school districts, we do not strictly follow any specific school district closing schedule. TIGAR is closed on all major bank holidays (New Years Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and week of and following Christmas). No credit is issued for holidays, as tuition is based upon 48 weeks of practice. Additionally, TIGAR will be closed for certain gym events (competitions, shows, festivals), gym maintenance days, coaching clinic/training days, as well as a brief summer and winter break (dates vary from year to year). Tuition is based upon 48 weeks of enrollment, however is broken into monthly payments for your convenience.
In the event of severe weather, we will make every effort to conduct practices, however we must take your safety as well as the ability of our coaches to get to the gym into consideration. If we decide to cancel classes, we will send out an email to all currently enrolled families, as well as will post notifications on our voicemail and website. If we cancel classes due to inclement weather, no make up classes will be offered for team practices, as there are no other times other than the normal practice times to make up practice. We will typically send email notifications beginning at 7:30 am for morning classes and 2:00 pm for afternoon/evening classes.
Holiday Closure Important Dates to Remember:
Thanksgiving Break, there will be no classes or practices 11/27/13 – 12/01/13.
Cub Club hours and operation the week of Thanksgiving: even though JeffCo Schools will be closed the entire week of Thanksgiving, we will still offer Cub Club as normal (3-6PM) on Monday and Tuesday (25th & 26th). We will not offer Cub Club 11/27-29th as well as no transportation on those 3 days.
Winter break, both team practices and recreational classes will be closed from 12/23/13 – 12/28/13 and January 1st.
As for make-up classes, there will be NO make-ups offered for Thanksgiving break as there are already 4 weeks in the month before missing for the holiday. For Winter break, make-ups will be permitted in December or January for classes missed because of the holidays.
I hope you have a safe and warm holiday. Should you have any questions regarding closures or how to make-up your missed class please email me at Drew@tigargym.com.
