Cleaning and Safety

At Paragon Gymnastics, your families safety is our top priority.  Below are some improvements and new practices that we have implemented to keep your children safe while they are having fun in class!

Please Note: if you see a class that is NOT social distancing, they are an Exclusive POD.  PODs do not social distance within their personal class.  PODs DO social distance from all the other students in the gym.

  • A disinfectant fogger has been added to our 7 day per week cleaning routine.  The facility, including cubbies and personal belonging baskets, are fogged before and after each class hour.

  • All frequently touched surfaces are sanitized with disinfecting wipes between classes (Example: door knobs, light switches, etc.)

  • All faucets, paper towel dispensers, and soap dispensers are now touchless.

  • A new procedure for drop-off and pick-up has been implemented to meet the CDC standards.

  • Everyone entering the building has their temperature taken with a touchless thermometer. Anyone with a fever of 100 degrees or higher is not permitted to enter.

  • Students are required to enter and exit the building individually (or by family or POD) to ensure social distancing requirements are met.

  • Only students who are enrolled in a class may remain in the building after check-in.

  • The lobby has been modified to accommodate 6-foot distancing for removing shoes, socks, and/or outerwear

  • Personal belongings are safely separated and contained in individual baskets. 

  • There is no admittance to the changing room.

  • In-person viewing will not be available until social distancing has been lifted. Parents and guardians have access to digital viewing through Spot TV.

  • Hand sanitizer is administered for all staff and students when entering and exiting the facility, before entering the gym, after each rotation, and before and after their drink break.  Hand sanitizer is at each station in the gym and throughout the lobby area

  • Gloves are available to staff for use as needed (example: when touching individual’s property, when handing something to a parent or student, etc.)

  • Water fountains and vending machines are disabled.  

  • Classes are socially distanced in the lobby for their drink break.  Only 2 classes have a drink break at a time.

  • Class sizes are lowered to a maximum of 6 students per class to maintain social distancing within the space of Paragon’s facility.

  • Gymnastics Stations have been reconfigured to accommodate social distancing

  • Unless the class is a POD, students maintain 6-foot distancing at each station, which is clearly designated and supervised by the instructor during class.  POD classes do not social distance.

  • Lesson plans have been modified to avoid the need for spotting (physically helping a child through a skill) unless required for safety or instructional purposes.

  • Instructors are required to wear masks.

  • In the interest of everyone’s safety, if class participants are unable to follow social distancing guidelines, parents will be contacted for early pick up.

  • The gym has 24 foot ceilings and plenty of air flow in the 10,000 square foot space. 

  • The gym windows are opened in conjunction with our central ceiling exhaust fan to ventilate the gymnasium in every season.

  • Paragon has installed an air purifier which is continuously running and the filters are changed regularly.

  • We have large ceiling fans that continuously run to circulate the air in the gymnasium.

  • A pre-filled leak-proof water bottle is required with your child’s FIRST AND LAST NAME printed on it (gallon jugs are NOT permitted).  

  • Please label all of your children's belongings to avoid any confusion.  Items that should be labelled include but are not limited to: backpacks, shoes (especially uggs), water bottles,
