Covid Protocol for Fall Programming

We know that these are unprecedented times in the world and we want to make sure the safety and health of everyone in our programs is taken into account.  For our Fall Programming we have the following plans in place.

  • Parents take temperatures and symptom check before arriving to a program
  • If anyone in the immediate family is sick we ask that you stay home from class that day
  • Parents wear a mask upon entering the building
  • Instructors and parents (if staying to watch) will need to wear a masks the entire program
  • Kids use hand sanitizer upon entering the room 
  • No equipment will be shared and students will remain socially distanced through out the programming 
  • All students will be required to sanitize hands when dismissed back to the parents
