COVID-19 POLICY AND PROCEDUES
We will be keeping our distance in classes and not sharing props. Each child in a combo class will be getting their own prop bag to be kept in the classroom with several props to use during class throughout the year.

• We will be disinfecting and sanitizing the dance room, barres, etc. between every class and disinfecting the bathrooms and lobby often. We will also have hand sanitizer readily available in all classrooms and the lobby.

• We will be releasing classes a few minutes early through the side doors. Classes in the Stage Right room will be exiting through the door to the far right on the front of the building. Classes in the Center Stage room will be exiting through the door on the right side of the building (the north side) towards the back by the storage units. Classes in the Stage Left room will be exiting through the door on the left side of the building (the south side) towards the back by the fence. If you have any questions about where your child will be dismissed, we will be happy to show you! Please be ready to pick up your child 5 minutes early.

• Masks are optional to wear during class and in the lobby.
• Our lobby playroom will continue to stay closed.

• We will be limiting the number of people in the lobby at any time. Please note if you do choose to come into the lobby to watch classes, the area around the viewing windows is limited, so social distancing might not be possible. If you do not need to come inside, you are more than welcome to drop your children off at the front door and we will make sure they get to class.

• We are asking parents and students not come into the studio more than 5 minutes before class.

We are committed to keeping you and your kiddos safe and healthy while at the studio! You can help by keeping distance and limiting the number of people in the lobby. In addition, please make sure your child uses the restroom before class, and send water in with your child to reduce trips to the bathroom to get drinks. We are also asking that students do not come in the building too early so teachers have time to sanitize the rooms before the next class comes in!
Tuition and Account Information
Your monthly tuition installment is due the first class of each month. Tuition received after the 10th will result in a $15 late fee. Tuition can be paid during office hours by credit/debit cards at the front desk or over the phone, and after hours online in your Parent Portal account. You can also pay with cash or check during office hours or after hours by dropping it through the mail slot. Please write student’s name in memo of checks! If you have any questions about your account please call the studio or talk to either Kristen or Ashlyn.
Autocharge is available if you would like to have your monthly tuition installment automatically charged to your card each month. Please fill out a form at the front desk or sign up online via your Parent Portal. Autocharge is taken out between the 1st and the 5th of each month. Additional charges such as Spring Show Fee and Costume Fees will never be charged to your card without notice. We will send a notice before charging these additional fees, and you will have the option to pay another way. Please note if you were signed up for autocharge last year, we will continue autocharge this year unless we hear otherwise.
Your Parent Portal can be accessed here. There you can see the schedule for each student, pay your account online, view resources from the teachers, and more!
Apparel & Shoes
If you are still needing dance shoes or apparel, 1st Position Apparel, located inside of K&Co. Dance Studio, will have everything you need! If you are unsure of what you need for class, go to www.kcodancestudio.com/dress-code. 1st Position's Facebook web page can be found here. They have made it even easier to find what you need for class! On their website, you can click on K & Co. Dance Studio and select the class you are needing to buy for (i.e. Combo Class or Hip Hop), and the shoes and apparel options are all right there! You can order anything you need on their website or go in to the store located inside our studio! Be sure to check their website and Facebook page for store hours!
We also have some used shoes for sale at the studio! You are always welcome to bring any shoes your dancer has grown out of to sell. We just ask that you put the shoes in a ziploc bag and put your name, the size, and the price you are asking for on the bag. Typically used ballet, tap, lyrical, and jazz shoes are sold for $5-10 depending on the condition, and Hip Hop shoes are sold for $20-30. However, you can ask for any price you think is fair! When your shoes sell, we will either send home the money in your child's dance class or credit it towards your account.
