In the wake of this pandemic, we would like to provide a space to keep updated when it comes to BDA and the Covid-19 virus.
Important Information regarding Covid-19
BDA COVID-19 POLICY STATEMENT
The health and safety of our BDA families and staff is our first priority. We have implemented a number of new safety measures based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that includes:
• An increased focus on disinfecting of surface areas and sanitation for all students and staff before and after starting any class.
• Face coverings are necessary & required for students. Staff will also be wearing masks & stay 6 feet apart aswell.
• Temperature screenings prior to entry for all
• Our dance studios & lobby areas will be partitioned off to maintain proper social distancing.
At this time BDA is re-opening our doors, since March 13th. This is unless or until directed otherwise. Each family is encouraged to make their own decision about coming to the studio, please do what you feel comfortable with and what makes the most sense for you and your family.
The well being of our students and families is a top priority! Please know that we are here to address any concerns or issues, and are happy to hear from you on additional ways we can keep our community healthy!
Re-Opening policies and guidelines
Must fill out all registration forms & waivers including covid-19 waiver
WHAT TO BRING:
Child's dance shoes & a water bottle.
Here are the guidelines to follow:
BDA’s FIRST PRIORITY IS THE SAFETY OF YOUR CHILDREN.
Please try to arrive at the studio 5 minutes before class time. All this is new, your cooperation is key.
For arrival, park in the front of the studio. Students should wait in the cars until a staff indicates to you to come in. Each Room will be assigned a door for the students to walk into.
For pick up, park in the parking lot on the side of the building. Students- kindergarten age and older will be asked to be dropped off and picked up at our BDA door. For our younger students (younger than Kindergarten)- we can allow one parent/guardian into the building to drop off.
I will take the temperature before entering the studio. If it is 100 or higher, they won't be able to participate in camp activities.
No parents inside the studio, except a designated one that will be helping at the door/parking lot.
If the parent needs to enter the studio, Adults are required to wear masks in the studio.
Students are required to wear masks. When we are outside we can take them off.
Do not use the dressing room
Students will dance/sing in their own personal box so that we can follow social distancing guidelines.
Wearing a mask is required and I will go at a slow pace, so they can get used to it.
The bathrooms will have wipes to clean handles. I'm sure at this point the kids wash their hands thoroughly.
The floor is taped with boxes 6 feet apart, where the children will be spaced and placed in.
Corrections will be verbal only. All teachers will wear a mask to teach.
* Please watch the videos we have created and share them with your children so that everyone can feel comfortable, confident and excited about our re-opening.
As always I will be maintaining the studio’s cleanliness, so keeping all these new rules won't be a problem, as long as everybody abides by the rules.
We are so ready to be BACK & BETTER than ever!
Sending so much love,
~Miss Christine & your BDA Faculty
