Covid-19 Procedures & Guidelines

LIGHTS UP SUMMER CAMP – COVID-19 GUIDELINES

1, Drop off and pick up to take place outside.

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.

2, Staff to wipe down surfaces between room changes.

Extra attention to high touch surfaces (doorknobs etc), tables, chairs to be wiped down between each class.

3, Staggered snack and lunch breaks outside.

Breaks will be taken outside in small groups with additional outdoor time provided throughout the day.

4, Handwashing and/or sanitizing at frequent intervals 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.

5, Strictly limited and reduced class sizes. Students to remain in their “class bubble” throughout the day.

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.

6, No public live performances or audiences

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.

7, No students or staff to attend camp if they or anyone in their household or social circle has any Covid like symptoms.

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.

9, Any student showing symptoms during the day will be supervised away from their classmates by a staff member and parent will be contacted for collection.

10, Minimize student movements thoughout the venue.

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.

11, Being mindful of Social Distancing.

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.
