Home OUR UPDATED COVID PROTOCOLS 1. Every parent will have to sign our specific COVID disclaimer as well as our regular disclaimer. 2. No parents will be allowed in the studio (except one parent or caretaker per Little Dreamer student that will be required to sit in a designated space in the waiting area and assist their child with shoe changes/bathroom during the weekly summer classes. This does not apply to Little Dreamers camp). 3. Every student will continue to get a temperature check upon arrival, while we await for new guidance for schools. 4. For the time being, and pending a revised mask protocol from the CDC and/or the Governor of the state with respect to schools, everyone (staff and students) will continue to be required to wear a mask while they are inside Dream Studio. We are hoping to change this soon but we were told we must follow the school protocols for the time being. No one will be required to wear a mask while outside, eating outside, or dancing on the outdoor stage. 5. Students will once again be allowed to change in the studio and use the dressing rooms provided. They must maintain at least three feet of distance between themselves and others, and masks must remain on. 6. Students will be allowed to resume entry and exit through the front door as prior to the beginning of the pandemic. Students are still encouraged to stay at least 3 feet away from each other. 7. Students will walk into the waiting area and stand or sit at least 3 feet from their peers. We will remove the lines marking individual spots, but chairs will remain distanced. 8. During class students will be allowed to go into the waiting area to their chair for a drink of water, one at a time. Students are encouraged to inform their teacher they need a drink of water, and will be allowed to quickly go out of the room and return to class. 9. Regular use of bathrooms will resume. 10. Students must keep masks on while using the bathroom and must close the toilet lid prior to flushing. All students must wash their hands and/or sanitize after using the bathroom. 11. The door from the studio to the waiting area will be open as often as necessary or at least once per hour for ventilation. 12. Each student will sanitize hands when necessary at their own discretion. 13. Each student will stand at least 3 feet away from fellow students unless it’s for short periods of time or transitory. 14. Hands-on corrections will resume as most teachers are vaccinated. If you are uncomfortable with hands-on corrections please let Kim and the faculty know. 15. There is at least one door to the outside in each studio. The doors will be open at least once per hour to ventilate well with the air purifiers remaining on at all times. The air conditioner will be on as needed. If the air temperature permits the windows and doors will be open instead and the fans will be running in each class. 16. Barres, and bathrooms will be sanitized between each class/camp session. Floors and chairs will now be sanitized once a day. 17. Students will leave the studio once class/camp has concluded, and will return to the waiting area and distance themselves at least 3 feet from their peers until they are dismissed from the studio by the teacher. 18. Students will exit one at a time through the front door of the studio. 19. Distancing between students will be changed to 3 feet to reflect the change in the schools protocols. 20. Parents must ensure that they are not late to pick up their children as this will cause an unsafe congestion in the studio. 21. The studio will be sanitized daily and the whole studio will also be deeply cleaned on a regular basis. Illness: Please do not send your child to class if they have a fever, are sick, sneezing, coughing, or show any signs of any illness.
