Wellness Policy

While Stagelight Performing Arts has always provided a safe place for your kids to hone their performing skills and “live on stage,” the COVID-19 pandemic has changed some of the ways we must operate. Never has the safety of your kids, your family, and our staff been of greater concern than it is at this time. And although you can still expect the same level of care for your children in our programs, many of our policies and procedures have changed in order to maintain the highest levels of safety and compliance possible.

Together, we form an ensemble. You are part of our team. Participation in our classes and programs at Stagelight requires acceptance and cooperation of our new policies and procedures outlined below. We thank you for your help in keeping our doors open to Stagelighters for years to come!

 /CHECK YOUR HEALTH FIRST

At Stagelight Performing Arts, we are dedicated to providing a healthy environment for your children and ask those experiencing symptoms of communicable illnesses to refrain from attending class.

Due to COVID-19, we can’t emphasize enough the importance of following our wellness policy. In the last 10 days, if you or your child has been told to quarantine by a medical or government official, had a fever, or persistent dry cough or shortness of breath, we ask that you please stay home. We appreciate your care and consideration for others.

If you or one of your children are experiencing any of the below symptoms of communicable illnesses, we ask that you please keep them at home.

  • Fever (100.4°F or higher) or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Green nasal discharge
  • Unexplainable rash
  • Watery, matted eyes
  • Head lice (those with head lice can only return after being treated with a lice-killing medication and no live lice are seen and all nits are removed).

 

 

 

 /RULES FOR COMMON AREAS

In order to increase social distancing measures within our common areas, parents with children ages 7+ must drop off children or wait in the car during class. For children ages 2-6, only one parent may accompany the child into the studio. Anyone who enters the studio must:

Use provided hand sanitizer before entering.

Face masks are strongly recommended.

Maintain social distancing within all common areas and follow any posted signage or floor spots to maintain social distance.

/CLASSROOM PROCEDURES 

Our classroom environments remain engaging and exciting, while new social distancing and cleanliness practices have been put in place:

Students stand on floor spots in class as directed by the teacher.

Hands-off correcting and no shared equipment. Class activities are arranged so social distancing is maintained.

Classrooms are cleaned and sanitized between each class.

/DROP OFF PROCEDURES 

To continue to mitigate the number of people in the studio at any given time, we are asking all parents with a child over the age of 6 to drop off their child. Those with a child 6 years and under are welcome to accompany their child in the studio, but are not required to. Please refer to the following drop-off diagram to help keep all of our kids safe.

Drive safely in our parking lot.

Drive straight into the business center then take a left at the far end to come around to the front of our building.

Follow the map on left to safely drop off your children.

We thank you so much for your cooperation during this time!

/PICK UP PROCEDURES 

To keep an efficient and safe traffic pattern moving throughout the studio, all student pick-ups after class will happen at the rear of the building. Make sure you:

Drive safely in our parking lot.

Put a sign in your car window with your child’s first and last name printed clearly.

Follow the map below to safely pick up your children.

We thank you so much for your cooperation during this time!
