Covid-19 Update 9/8
For those of you who are new to the studio, we do have some different guidelines occurring because of COVID-19. We are not allowing parents to watch class at this time or to come inside and drop off their dancers. We will be updating parents with pictures and videos throughout the year until we can allow parents back in the studio. Other guidelines to follow right now:
No dance bags allowed. Instead, please bring a paper/plastic sack with their name on it.
Plastic water bottles are only allowed at this time.
Masks are to be worn for all dancers when they enter the building and in the hallways. They do NOT have to wear them in the classrooms at this time because of the way we are spacing out the kids at all times. If you prefer to have your dancer wearing their mask, that is completely fine! Please bring a ziplock baggie if you prefer to have the dancers put their masks in.
Please do your best to have your dancer use the bathroom before class begins.
We will be doing a touch free temperature check at the door for all students and then they will use a touch free hand sanitizer as they enter. Hand sanitizer will also be available throughout the studio and in each room.
All staff members will be wearing masks. Any time the instructor has to get close to the dancers, they will be wearing a face shield too at this time.
Drop off and pick up is different as well. We have 3 different doors we will have dancers enter/exit out of. Please see below
Drop off procedure at front door:
We need everyone to arrive 5-10 minutes early to ensure they will be in the classroom on time. Your dancers will enter the front door. Please see the video attached to know where the doc door is. It is so important to be on time. If you are late, you will not be able to enter the studio on your own. Instead of parking in the parking spots and bringing your kids in the studio or dropping them off at the door, we are going to ask you to drive into the parking lot, turn around so your car is facing north (or towards the parking lot entrance/exit). The first car should be in front of the front door. From there, we ask that everyone forms a line with their cars. It is important that everyone stays in their vehicles until they are prompted to come to the door by a CESOD Staff Member. Once your dancer is called to come to the front door, they will come to the CESOD Staff Member where they will get a quick touch free temperature check and hand sanitizer. They will then follow the markings on the floor in the studio and another CESOD Staff Member will guide them to their class room. If you want to walk your child to the front door, you are welcome to do so. We just ask that you wear a mask during this time.
Pick up procedure:
For picking up your dancers, please make sure you are on time. This is very important so we can continue to clean, practice our social distancing and keep our occupancy low. When you are at the studio to pick up your dancer, we will dismiss out the front door. We ask that you park in a parking spot by the front door and stand outside, by your car. We will let out one child at a time. When we bring out your dancer, please make sure to waive, so the CESOD Staff Member is aware that they are going to the right car. Your dancer will be prompted to walk to your car, or the staff member will walk them to your car depending on their age. If you are wanting to walk up and get your dancer, that is okay as well, but we ask that you please wear a mask during this process.
We know this year may be a little different, but we are still going to have just as much fun!!
