COVID-19 Policies

 

COVID-19 WAIVER

Little Blank Canvas LLC has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 during our 2020/21 School Year.

This is a shared responsibility situation – we are doing all in our power to offer safe programs to our community and we rely on all families to be responsible in return. An important step is to be honest and transparent with information, both Little Blank Canvas and all families attending classes and events at the STUDIO.

Steps we are taking (also in accordance with CDC guidance and experts):

 

  1. We have added extra ventilation in our Digital Lab to allow for more air to flow out of the space.

  2. We have completed an extra deep cleaning of the entire facility after Summer Camps and left the Studio closed for over 2 weeks to allow the studio to be ready for classes.

  3. Studio capacity is reduced to less than 50% during classes.

  4. Drop off and Pick up will be done curbside by a staff member – no adults (other than staff) will be allowed inside the studio during class hours. Parents will be able to watch their child enter the Studio. Children will not leave the Studio during class, unless otherwise discussed and authorized by parents/legal guardians.

  5. A Covid-19 Waiver will be required to be signed by all parents/legal guardians prior to the first day of class (to be emailed to all enrolled families prior to the first day).

  6. We will have a hand-sanitizing station set up outside the studio and one inside the studio during operating hours Staff and students will wash hands and/or sanitize hands before and after each activity.

  7. We will take each child's temperature using a no-contact thermometer before entering the Studio. Any child who has a fever above 100.4 degrees or has other signs of illness will not be admitted into the facility and immediately sent home. At its discretion, Little Blank Canvas LLC may require a medical provider’s written permission for a student to return to class.

  8. We will check the temperature and symptoms of all staff members daily.  Any Staff Member who has a fever above 100.4 degrees or has other signs of illness will not be admitted into the facility and immediately sent home. At its discretion, Little Blank Canvas LLC may require a medical provider’s written permission for a Staff Member to return to the Studio.

  9. We will provide and post checklists for all staff members to document the time and frequency of cleaning/sanitizing of frequently touched surfaces.

  10. Hand washing will be required frequently throughout the day for staff and students.

  11. We purchased an UV LIGHT Sanitizer to clean all materials and busy areas throughout the day.

  12. Cloth Masks will be provided to all students on the first day of class, and students will be responsible to bring masks to class daily. We suggest, and highly encourage, that Students wear masks, but mask use is not mandatory for students 11 yr and younger.

  13. Staff members will be required to wear masks during class hours.

 

What we expect from families:

*Take your child's temperature before leaving the house and ensure your child does not have a fever, shortness of breath or cough. 

*Do not send your child to the Studio if they have been given Tylenol or Ibuprofen in the last 8-10 hours.

*Do not send your child to the Studio if they have been in contact with anyone that has tested positive for the virus or if you have reason to believe you, your family, or your child has been in contact with anyone that tested positive.

*Please keep your child at home when showing any signs or symptoms of illness (including, but not limited to, cold, cough, sneezing, or any other symptom). DO NOT send your child if they have had a fever within the last 24 hours or are in contact with someone that is in isolation. 

* If you would like to have your child wear a mask, make sure to bring a mask to class – we will give students one mask on their first day of class but it is their responsibility to bring it to class weekly.
