COVID-19 GUIDELINES

COVID-19 Protocols for Fall 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 class.

ARRIVAL and PICK-UP

Accompanying adults may bring children directly up to the studio or send children upstairs from the floor below the studio. Masks are recommended to enter the building. Masks are required for unvaccinated adults accompanying children.  Adults are welcome to leave during class, or to stay in the building during class time.

Children should take off shoes in the entry hall, and then wash hands before entering the studio.

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 or wait on the floor below.

CLASS TIME – MASKING & CLASS SIZE LIMITS

Children will be required to wear masks during class. We will be maintaining 6 feet minimum of social distance  at all times. The studio will be marked with tape, designating proper distancing. Windows and fans will be utilized for good ventilation. Teachers will always be masked.

We are maxing our children’s classes at 10 students per class to ensure ample room in the classroom for distancing – and dancing!!

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.
