RainCoast Studio Covid Protocol - Fall 2020

Our desire is to create a fun and safe learning environment for students, parents and teachers.  With our location, we are able to have a very controlled environment both inside and directly outside our studio space.  We will be strictly adhering to our protocol plan for all classes, following the guidelines in accordance with BC CDC, WorkSafe BC, Island Health and K-12 learning.  Our space will be clean, sanitized and monitored.  Non contact fever checks can also be done if deemed necessary.  

Our classes are limited to 5 students so that we can have the necessary physical distance.
Because we teach musical theatre, and students are singing, - cotton face masks are required.  A washable cloth mask will be provided to each student at the beginning of the semester.  Subsequent masks are available for purchase if desired.  If students bring a mask from home, please make sure it fits very well, and stays in place when moving around.We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and will follow the restrictions and guidelines put in place by our municipal, provincial, federal governments and our music licensing organizations.

Drop off / Arrival:
Students must arrive at the back of the building (there is an alley road between our building and the casino building).

There will be 5 chairs spaced down the hallway.  Please take a seat and wait, keeping your physical distance while you visit with your classmates before class.  Parents are asked not to wait with the student unless needed.  If parents do wait with the student, please keep the physical distance required between your family ‘bubble’ and other students / parents in the hall.   When the classroom is ready, the teacher will call you in. 

(There will be a 15 minute break between classes for the classroom to be sanitized.)  

Before students enter the studio, they will use the hand washing station and put on their masks.  Please leave coats, bags and other items outside the door.  Music and water bottles are all that is permitted in the studio.

Our studio floor will be marked with a grid to help us all keep the physical distancing required at this time.  Students will go directly to their space and wait for the class to begin.

Pick up / Departure:
Student pick up is from the front of the building.

There will be 5 chairs spaced apart for parents waiting to pick a student up, or students waiting to be picked up.  Please keep to these spaces as you visit with other parents or students.

DO NOT COME TO CLASS  If you or anyone in your family has symptoms of, or is waiting for test results for Covid-19.  If your student has a fever, dry cough or is feeling unwell, please stay home.  RainCoast reserves the right to send any student or teacher home who displays any signs of being unwell.
