COVID-19

How our programs will change to meet the health and safety requirements

  • Class sizes will be limited to maximize social distancing efforts.

  • All staff will be required to wear face coverings/masks

  • Students are strongly encouraged to wear face masks.

  • Temperature checks will be conducted daily. Once at the beginning of camp and again for anyone suspected of illness. Furthermore, any child that has symptoms of illness will not be accepted for camp that day and must remain home for 24 hours after they are no longer symptomatic.

  • There will be a designated sick area for isolation of any child that develops a fever or is suspected of illness until they are picked up by their parent.

  • Institute handwashing at regular intervals. All campers and staff will be required to wash hands as they enter the building, before lunch, after recess, and in-between transitions from one classroom to the next.

  • We will follow the recommendations of our public health officials and our board of directors for all safety and sanitation measures.

  • We will not permit adults other than our staff to enter the building.  All children will be dropped off and picked up by a teacher/staff person at the circle in front of the building.

 

We will continue to be vigilant cleaning and sanitizing ALL of the classrooms, galleries, and buildings throughout the day.  Playground equipment as well as classroom materials will be cleaned and sterilized after each class. Osceola Arts will adhere to the best practices and all guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization for cleaning our facility throughout the day and each evening in order to be ready to start the next day.
