Our staff will be outside to facilitate drop off and pick up. Parents are asked to limit entering our facilities to reduce contacts as much as possible, other than organized and planned events.
As per the latest PHO, masks are no longer required to be worn but staff and participants whilst at Lights Up, Inside or outside.
We understand that the continued wearing of masks is a personal choice, parents, students and teachers can choose to wear masks at any time if they wish.
High touch surfaces (doorknobs etc.) to be wiped down periodically during the session. Special attention will be paid to common areas such as washrooms etc.
Special attention to hand cleanliness before and after snack breaks. Hand washing/Sanitizing on arrival and before leaving the building.
We have reduced our class sizes in all programs and camps to allow more spacing between students in the classroom and during group activities.
As restrictions ease we will be re-introducing live performances when possible. There are currently no PHO’s in place that limit live performances, but individual venues may still have their own requirements or restrictions in place which we will respect at all times.
Parents will be required to verify that their child and members of their household are free of Covid-19 like symptoms before attending Lights Up programs. We request that parents contact Lights Up immediately if this situation changes during our 10-week class term, during the scheduled camp days and for 14 days afterwards. This also applies to Lights Up staff.
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 activities and games that involve physical contact and close proximity to others.
All Lights Up programs use rented venues, in order to be allowed to rent space we must adhere to EACH venue’s specific Covid-19 procedures and guidelines. These include individual room capacities, washroom protocol, adequate social distancing in common areas, following specific cleaning procedures and additional safety protocols that may be in place on top of Lights Up procedures and guidelines.
