How is POG applying these guidelines?

Wellness Checks for Staff

  • POG is a Youth Protection Advocates in Dance® Certified Studio. Additionally, all teachers and staff members will receive regular and continuing safety training as it relates to preventing community spread of COVID-19.

  • All staff members are wellness checked before their shift.

 

Frequent Hand Hygiene

  • Employees will wash hands and/or sanitize before and after each class.

  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available outside of all entrances, outside of every classroom, and inside the classrooms. Students will be encouraged to wash hands and/or sanitize before and after classes.

  • Hand washing posters are posted within bathrooms and classrooms.

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

  • We have increased our cleaning frequencies and sanitation procedures in high traffic areas and high touch surfaces of the studio such as doors, viewing windows, barres, floors, counters, stereos, and bathrooms.

 

Minimized Mixing and Mingling

  • We have made facility, scheduling, and curricular changes to reduce mixing and mingling in support of social distancing recommendations. However, we understand that unlike older children and adults, young children cannot be expected to maintain social distancing at all times despite our best efforts..

 

Facility & Curricular Adjustments

  • All lobby waiting areas, kitchen area, hall ways, our bathroom stalls will be closed unless specified. Our family restroom will remain open.

  • Please bring clearly labeled water bottles. Drinking fountains will not be available.

  • Dancers will bring all dance bags into the studio for changing shoes. Bathrooms will be available for toileting only, but not for changing clothes.

  • No food will be allowed in the studio.

  • Curricular adjustments have been made to eliminate prop use and hand-holding and to reduce mixing and mingling in the classroom.

  • Class sizes have been modified to reflect current county recommendations.

  • Classrooms will refrain from high fives, “ballerina hugs”, fist bumps, stickers, and stamps.

  • Classrooms will have designated entrance and exit points.

 

Gradual Re-Opening & Continuous Parent Communication

  • Parents are asked to not send their children to class if they, or a member of their household, have
    tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

  • Please visit our website and join our POG Parent & Student Community Private Facebook page beginning August 15 where you will find a stop and go light icon that clearly indicates the status of classes: Green indicates it is safe to attend face-to-face classes. Yellow indicates a cautionary change to service delivery. Red indicates students should stay home and attend class online.


Arrival & Departure

  • Please enter and exit using the designated entrance point for studio A, B, or C. At this time, we ask that parents wait in their cars or outside during classes to help with social distancing in the building. 

  • Please limit parent drop off to one person whenever possible. 

  • At the end of class, parents must be by the door to receive their child if they are 5th grade or younger. Younger students cannot walk across the parking lot to go to their parents for safety reasons.


Bathroom Use

  • We encourage all students to use the restroom at home before coming to class.

  • Bathrooms will be limited for emergencies and will be cleaned frequently.

  • Bathroom facility use will be limited to our single family bathroom.

 

Masks

  • Our employees will be wearing masks until it is safe to no longer require them.

  • Mask wearing for students is at personal/parental discretion and is strongly encouraged.

  • Any adult that enters our facility must wear a mask.
