We have received phone calls recently, asking for us to join a “grassroots movement” of businesses planning to open their doors and restart their businesses on January 11, 2021 despite the public health orders, and in direct violation of Alberta’s COVID-19 restrictions.
I want to assure all of our students, team members, and supporters that, while we WISH we were back to the normal we all desperately miss, we will continue to put the health and safety of each other and all of our students first. We will not be joining this “movement,” as it very clearly has the potential to harm our students.
Our job is - by its very nature - a social one. Our actions can have far-reaching repercussions.
Our beloved students currently range in age from 4 - 97. With so many students who fall into the “at risk” age range, for us to join this “movement” is to ask us to directly threaten the lives of our students.
This is something we will NEVER do.
We will continue to be guided by science, and not by frustration.
We do know that the restrictions are currently in place until January 21, 2021, and we will be announcing more information about our own relaunch when more information from medical experts, and government officials has been made public.
Please know this: We miss you, and will see you again as soon as it is safe to do so.
Be safe. Stay healthy. Keep practicing.
We’re all in this together.
