Dear MDU Families,
Today the Onalaska and Holmen School Districts announced that due to a sharp decline in cases, they will no longer require the wearing of masks in their facilities as of Monday, February 14. We have noted the same sharp decline in cases in our programs and will be following suit. The updated policy for MDU will be effective Monday, February 21 as our studio is closed for Intersessional Break next week.
Every day that we can get where children can fully express themselves in the classroom and teachers can have full communication, including facial cues, we will celebrate! And, if there are days ahead where cases rise to a point where we have to revisit our mask policy, we will do so.
In meantime, all other risk-mitigating factors remain in place and parents are asked to keep their children home if they do not feel well and to keep up with other healthy habits such as good hand hygiene, hydration, nutrition, and sleep. Anyone who would still like to wear a mask to class for comfort is welcome to do so and plenty of masks will still be available at the front desk.
I want to thank our faculty, families, and students for their support over the past two years. Working together, we have kept our classrooms open continuously since June of 2020 and we are working on our return to the stage for Spring Recital! Now that’s some awesome teamwork!
Thank you for your support! With appreciation,
Ad submissions closed on Thursday, March 31st.
Placing a business ad in this year's Spring Recital program is a unique opportunity to congratulate your dancer and highlight your business!
As you know, after two years we are excited to celebrate the season at The Viterbo Fine Arts Center again the weekend of May 20-22. Our recital theme is On Broadway and our beautiful full-color program book will include advertising opportunities for local businesses to promote their businesses to Coulee Region families.
The generosity of local businesses like yours helps us continue to serve our 700+ students and provide top-notch programming. Because of your support, we are able to continue Darby’s Dancers classes, a program for dancers with special needs, classes for children in foster care, and classes for students from the Boys & Girls Club through the Chance To Dance Foundation - a 501(c)(3).
We would love to include your business in this year's Recital Yearbook Program!
AS A THANK YOU:
In addition to being seen by thousands of local community members, advertisers receive 2 complimentary tickets for the performance of your choice:
Thank you for supporting the arts for kids in our community!
