2022/23 Plan for Building Use

In compliance with State and CDC guidelines, DelArts has proposed the following accommodations to ensure the safety and health of our patrons:

For Faculty:

  • Instructors will stay home if they have a cough, fever, or if a member of their household has been sick or shows signs of illness.

  • Instructors will have minimal physical contact with students (shaking hands, hugs, high 5s, etc.). 

  • Instructors will help to sanitize studios at the completion of classes, including barres, floors, and teacher area (stereo/etc).

  • Instructors will have their own masks, but extras will be on hand in the event that one is needed. 

 

 

Building use and Cleaning:

  • Lobbies will remain closed to family members not in classes. No parents may be inside the building unless front desk staff is needed to help with registration, tuition payments, etc. Parents may wait in their cars. Please be sure that your cell number is correct in your parent portal in the event that we need to reach you during class time.

  • Bathrooms will be disinfected regularly, with hospital grade disinfectant. Students will be encouraged to use the restrooms at home prior to coming to class so as to minimize the need for facility use on site.

  • Bathrooms in the lobby are single stalls and can be dedicated to that side of the building only.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available in the lobby.

  • No communal supplies will be used. Dancers must provide their own therabands, artists will be providing their personal materials, etc.​

Student and Parent Expectations:

  • Students must stay home if they are sick or have a fever. They are welcome to Zoom into class if we are notified in advance of the need to do so.

  • It is recommended that students still practice social distancing whenever possible.

  • Masks are recommended but not required. 

  • Students should not enter the building until 5 minutes prior to their starting class time. They may wait in their cars - in a parking spot, not against the curb - until their class time.

  • Students should arrive in their dance clothes. There will be no changing in the restrooms.

  • Students should wear a cover-up into and out of the building.

  • ALL SHOES, BAGS, and WATER BOTTLES should be labeled with the student's name. 

  • It is recommended that students hand sanitize upon entering the building and wash hands after using the restroom.

  • The lobby will be divided into a homework/study area and an area where students may eat between classes. No students will be allowed to sit/eat in hallways between classes.
