    Taking them out so soon isn't advisable. It's unlikely they'd close up completely if your class is only an hour or so, but constantly taking them in and out could irritate the piercing and delay healing.
    If they become problematic or irritated, maybe consider having them re-pierced during the summer?

    Would that make them infected??
