Protocols for classes in the 2020/21 season will follow current health and safety guidelines laid out by the province of Nova Scotia. During these unprecedented times it is understood that these policies may change to reflect updated restrictions.
- Classes are working within the guidelines released by Nova Scotia Public Health for After School Programs. . Students are required to wear masks indoors when physical distancing isn't possible. Students should always come to class prepared with a mask. There will be times when distancing allows them to work without it.
-Parents are asked to monitor children for symptoms and keep their child back from class if they are displaying any signs of illness. Anyone displaying signs of illness may not enter the studio.
-Students will be required to use provided hand sanitizer upon entering the rehearsal studio, and practice frequent hand washing throughout the session. The studio will be thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and ventilated after each class.
-On the first day of class, parents (one at a time) will be welcome in the studio for a brief meet and greet, and to fill in any necessary paper work. Parents must wear a mask when entering the school. Students should also come prepared with a mask on. Following this introductory class, attendance to class should be drop-off only. To allow for staggered drop-offs, students may arrive to class within fifteen minutes of start time.
- If a student, or member of their family, travels outside of Nova Scotia they must self-isolate for fourteen days before returning to classes. Anyone exposed to a potential case of COVID-19 must not attend classes until their self-isolation is complete.
