COVID-19 GUIDELINES

COVID-19 Protocols for Summer 2021

Dear parents and caregivers,

This document is to supply a detailed account of what protocols will be in place to ensure the safety of all children and staff during our time at MAGMA. We have taken in consideration all of the State of Massachusetts guidelines, and either meet or exceed criteria for safe operation. Please read below for how we will handle all aspects of the day.

ARRIVAL and PICK-UP

Accompanying adults may bring children directly up to the studio. Masks must be worn into the building by children ages 5 and up, unless they are vaccinated. Masks are advised for unvaccinated adults accompanying children.  Adults are welcome to leave during class, or to stay in the building during class time.

If your child is showing any signs of illness, including a temperature, congestion, coughing, or body aches/chills, it is essential that you do not bring your child to class.

Accompanying adults may come up to the studio at the the end of class for pick-up.

CLASS TIME

Children will not be required to wear masks during class, but of course may do so if the parents so desire. We will be maintaining 6 feet minimum of social distance  at all times. The studio will be marked with tape, designating proper distancing. Windows will be fully opened and fans will be circulating air. If there are times during class where children cannot keep distancing, we will have them wear their masks. Teachers will also be masked.

Note: If COVID case numbers continue to worsen in the state, we will require children wear their masks for the entirety of class. This policy will continue into Fall.

CLEANING PROCEDURES

The bathroom, door handles, tables, and dance floor will be cleaned and disinfected daily before students arrive, with additional cleaning between classes.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

All MAGMA teachers are fully vaccinated and will be trained in the protocols to keep all of our students healthy and safe.
