Our staff will be outside between 8.45 and 9.15am and 2.45 and 3.15pm to facilitate drop off and pick up. Parents will not be permitted to enter the building. Further details on drop off and pick up procedures will be e-mailed before the start of camp.
Our staff may be wearing masks at pick up and drop off. They will not be wearing masks throughout the day unless necessary for safety reasons.
Extra attention to high touch surfaces (doorknobs etc), tables, chairs to be wiped down between each class.
Breaks will be taken outside in small groups with additional outdoor time provided throughout the day.
Special attention to hand cleanliness before and after each food break. Hand sanitizer to be used on entering a new environment. Hand washing on arrival and before leaving the building.
All classes will be reduced numbers compared with our usual class sizes, in line with venue restrictions. We will limit interaction between groups and no group classes or performances will take place this summer.
We are unable to invite parents in to view the final performance on friday as we usually would. Instead our performance will be filmed and sent to parents.
Parents will be required to verify and sign to state there is no sickness in their household or immediate social circle at sign in each morning throughout the week.
Our usual structure involves rotation of students to different “stations” for different classes throughout the camp. This will be minimized, and we will be adding more outdoor time to our day.
The BC Centre for Disease Control recognizes that physical distancing for children is difficult. Instead, the focus should be on avoiding physical contact where possible. With this in mind, we will be avoiding dance activities and games that involve physical contact. We will be using floor markers to encourage distancing in the classroom setting.
