Latest situation with regards to coronavirus

Dear parents,

I have heard from the ISTD that examinations will not take place for the next 12 weeks, then exams will be either refunded or re-arranged. I would prefer to rearrange as the children and students have spent so long perfecting their movements, it seems a pity for them to miss out.

Also the dance festival in Torbay has been cancelled at present although they do wish to have it later in the year.

I am going to continue with lessons (not extra exam classes) until the schools are told to close, unless Keely, Lesann or myself are unwell. The barres are cleaned between classes and children are asked to wash hands after arriving and after sneezing etc. Obviously should anyone in your family be unwell then please self isolate.

These are my thoughts but if you would prefer to keep your child at home, then I respect your judgement in doing so.

Next term is due to start on April 18th but invoices will not be given out until we restart and we have a clearer idea of what is happening.

Please get in touch if you have any queries.

Regards and keep safe,
June Hornby
