Can you believe we’re already 2 weeks in?! But! There’s still time to register, enrollment is open for 2 more weeks. So if you have any friends or family who are interested but thought they may have missed it, tell them to head on over to our website and register. Everything's better when you bring your friends!

A few things we’d like to mention this week-

1. CHECK-IN. You may have noticed there is a new method for arriving and getting your kids to class. Because we're adding more classes, teachers, students!!! (Oh My!) we are now asking that all students check in at the lower level front desk. Here's how it will work. If your student is in 6th grade or above, you can sign a waiver allowing them to checkin alone. Then you can still drop them off at the curb. If your child is 5th grade or below, you will need to walk them into the building and sign them in yourself. In both cases, once a student is signed in, we are asking that they wait on the lower level until the teacher has arrived before going upstairs. For 3-6 year olds, we are having our company members and volunteers escort them to their classes and back down at the end. If you feel you need to accompany your young student upstairs please just let us know at the checkin desk, and we will get you a visitor badge. Since this is a new practice for us at EAS, we may have some initial growing pains and will definitely fine tune some things as the semester progresses, but ultimletlyy we are interested in the safety and well-being of your kids and want to make sure that the studio floor is very secure and accounted for. Thanks for your understanding and patience, and if you'd like to volunteer to help at checkin, let us know!

 2. T-SHIRTS. Our Fall shirts have arrived and will be available starting next week. Please check with the checkin staff for pickup instructions.
