**Peacock School of Dance and the Annex are closed**

**Update: April 1st, 2020**
Dear PSD Family,

We miss you! Obviously this has been a very difficult time for all of us. As we make our way through these unimaginable days, please know that we have not forgotten you. Our hope was that life would return to normal and students would return to school and dance classes in early April, however this is not the case. Following provincial guidelines, Peacock School of Dance will remain closed until at least May 4th, when schools may be able to reopen. If this is the case, and students return to school, we plan to open as well and extend our dance year into June. We are busy brainstorming possibilities for a year end closing celebration.

We have recently been informed by En Pointe and Just Dance that the competition has been cancelled. We know our competition dancers must be disappointed, as are we, and we thank them for all their hard work.

In closing, we will continue to update you on what is happening at Peacock. We must acknowledge that things change day to day. Our number one priority as always is the safety and well being of our students, our staff, and their families.

With much love,
Miss Derene, Miss Lesley, Miss Pam
