At Leap Studios Inc., the health and safety of our faculty and students remains our most important priority.
After consulting with industry leaders and staying dutifully informed on the recommendations of Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health, we have determined that is it in the best interest of our faculty and families commence our Spring Break immediately.
Effective Monday, March 16, the studio will be on break, and closed, through Sunday, March 29 to help with slowing the spread of COVID-19. The studio space itself may remain closed after that time, and we will be consulting with and taking our direction from Alberta’s excellent Health Services officials.
In the event that it is not in the best interest of public health to re-open on March 30, your child will receive instruction and work toward progressing through their curriculum without interruption, online from home, until we are given the clear to have our children return to their regular learning environments.
During this Spring Break closure, our staff will be putting the finishing touches on our Virtual Classrooms, a plan we have been working on for over a month in anticipation of this unprecedented event. This innovative way of providing class will continue to deliver the lesson experience you know and love at Leap Studios Inc., just in a slightly different way. Details on this will be released shortly, including starting day of virtual classes. We plan on launching a few classes over Spring Break to test out this new feature. Take a look at our BAND app now for a short video clip to keep up spirits :)
Now more than ever it's important for your child to have normalcy and routine. We need them to be active, move, use their mind and imagination, and still interact socially with their peers. We hope to help provide that normalcy and familiar outlet for your children.
Until otherwise notified, all other dates remain unchanged. We will continue to monitor the situation, and as more directions are issued, we will update you accordingly.
We deeply thank you for your support during this time. As a small business in a challenging time, your continued dedication to our mission to provide your child with invaluable life skills through the arts ensures we can continue doing the work we do.
Thank you for taking the appropriate steps with us to lessen the risk to our community as much as possible. We greatly appreciate your support all along and especially moving forward.
We’re glad you’re here – and we hope you stay well.
