THE DANCE CENTRE COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR SAFE RE-OPENING
The Dance Centre at the ROC
2020-21 Guidelines for Safe Re-Opening

Parents, please review the following studio guidelines and keep this handout for future reference.

1. Students will arrive no more than 10 minutes before designated class time. Please remain at your car until a staff member waves you to the door. Please make sure student has used the bathroom prior to arrival and is completely dressed in dance attire.
2. All students must wear a face covering when entering and exiting the building. Please practice with your young dancer at home prior to classes beginning.  
3. Temperatures will be taken at the door by Mrs. Beth Serrentino, the ROC manager. No one with temp above 99 will be permitted to enter. 
4. Students will wait in lobby with Ms. Mary Beth or Ms. Carly and will practice social distancing. Waiting areas for visitors in the ROC are closed at this time. Parents may wait in their car or feel free to run errands during this time. We need to have a current phone number in case you need to be reached during class time.
5. Promptly at class time we will go up the stairs to the studio. Elevator will not be used. Once in classroom, students will place their dance bag in a chair, change into dance shoes and clean hands with hand sanitizer. Chairs and tap boards will be set up in a socially distant place from each other. Students need to have their own hand sanitizer in their bag. Once in place, masks may be removed unless parent prefers otherwise.
6. Especially for younger students, please have a conversation at home about maintaining social distance from their friends. I know this will be a challenge for our pre-schoolers and we will need to work together as a team to be successful.
7. Mid class when we change shoes, students may bring a water bottle from home for water break. Currently, I haven't decided about snacks but will let you know. During this small break time, hands will be sanitized again.  
8. We will be following local and state mask requirements for athletics. While students are in their socially distant space, masks will not be required, unless parent prefers. When students are unable to retain social distancing due to choreography or other classwork, they will put on masks for brief periods. Please make sure your dancer has a clean mask on hand at all times.
9. At the end of class, students will be taken back downstairs by their teacher. Please be prompt as we need to quickly dismiss in order for staff to clean between classes. Monday and Thursday 3:30 classes will be picked up at the side entrance on the opposite end from the day care. Monday and Thursday 4:30 classes may be picked up in the front of the ROC. Hands will be sanitized once more and masks will be put back on for dismissal.
10. Staff members will be cleaning between classes, so your prompt arrival and pick-up is very important. All students need to have a personal bottle of hand sanitizer, a mask, water bottle (if desired), and dance shoes in their bags. Please do not send book bags, extra belongings, food from home, etc.

3. Temperatures will be taken at the door by a staff member. No one with temp above 99 will be permitted to enter. 
4. One at a time, students will then go directly to classroom. Studios will have designated socially distant areas for each dancer. There will be a corresponding floor marker for each student to place his or her dance bag and water bottle. Student will put on dance shoes and then clean hands with hand sanitizer. Each student will bring his/her own bottle of hand sanitizer and keep in dance bag. Once in the designated dance space, student may remove mask, unless parent prefers otherwise.  
5. Lobby and dressing room are closed except to staff.
6. Especially for younger students, please have a conversation at home about maintaining social distance from their friends. I know this will be a challenge for our pre-schoolers and we will need to work together as a team to be successful.
7. Mid class when we change shoes, students may bring a water bottle from home or get one from Ms. Kay for water break. Parents will need to set up a charge account ahead of time if student will be getting water from Ms. Kay. She will deliver water to students in the classroom. Currently, I haven't decided about snacks but will let you know. During this small break time, hands will be sanitized again.  
8. We will be following local and state mask requirements for athletics. While students are in their socially distant space, masks will not be required, unless parent prefers. When students are unable to retain social distancing due to choreography or other classwork, they will put on masks for brief periods. Please make sure your dancer has a clean mask on hand at all times.
9. At the end of class, parents will pick up in the back of the shopping center behind our studio. Please be prompt as we need to quickly dismiss in order for staff to clean between classes. (The last class of each day may be picked up in the front of the studio.) Students will remain in their socially distant space until called for dismissal. Hands will be sanitized once more and masks will be put back on for dismissal.
10. Each classroom will have an air purifier with a HEPA filter running for the duration of class. Students doing barrework will do so at a socially distant space. Staff members will be cleaning between classes, so your prompt arrival and pick-up is very important. All students need to have a personal bottle of hand sanitizer, a mask, water bottle (if desired), and dance shoes in their bags. Please do not send book bags, extra belongings, food from home, etc.
