Summer Camp Protocol:
If students are sick with ANYTHING, they should stay home.
If a student tests positive for COVID they must:
–Isolate for at least 5 days and until they are fever-free for 24 hours and symptoms are improving.
If a student is exposed:
–The office will notify parents/guardians of the exposure.
–Parents/guardians, please monitor your child’s symptoms closely. If any symptoms appear, the student must stay home and we recommend they test.
–Students will be strongly encouraged, but not required, to wear a mask for the duration of the week.

Ways we are keeping safe
Between each class, we are cleaning and sanitizing the studios. We take attendance and provide sign-in sheets at open studio hours to ensure we can properly contract trace if needed. In our ARTastic Summer Camp and School's Out programs, parents drop-off and pick-up at the door, to decrease the number of people entering the premises, along with taking temperatures at the door. Each of the students have their own art station, with their own set of supplies, to try to ensure a proper distance is kept between everyone and we are not sharing lots of art materials. We also wash our hands... A LOT! On nice weather days, we also try to take advantage of the open outdoors, as our large backyard area is great for playing and doing some of the messier art projects. There is also tons of space for social distancing there!
