COVID PROTOCOL FOR SPRING 2021
All dancers, parents, and staff members must continuously self screen for any symptoms before coming to the studio.
Following PfISD procedure, any dancer with a positive test, or an immediate family member with a positive test, must quarantine and stay out of the studio for 14 days.
Office Staff will take temperatures of all dancers as they arrive at the studio. Dancers should immediately wash their hands or use the hand sanitizer provided at the front desk.
Dancers 7 and older must wear a mask inside the studio at all times unless a parent shares a medical concern with the office staff.
Only one parent per dancer Ages 3-6 is permitted to wait in the lobby during class. Parents of dancers 7 and older are encouraged to drop dancers off at the door to keep the lobby areas open. If a dancer is trialing a class, one parent may stay during the duration of the first class.
Please limit belongings to necessary shoes, props, and water bottles. Lunch boxes are also permitted
Participants should wait in their car before entering the building. Participants may enter the building 5 minutes in advance to get to their assigned classroom. This helps give us time to clean in between classes and lessons and limits the time spent inside the studio.
