SAFER STUDIO GUIDELINES

The health of our staff, students, and families has always been our highest priority. Studio 56 Dance & Little Learners Preschool follows the Safer Studio guidelines, which prioritize a hierarchy of safety and wellness measures.  They include, but are not limited to, wellness checks, amplified and frequent hand hygiene, enhanced environmental services, minimizing mixing and mingling via physical distancing practices, curricular and facility adjustments, and continuous parent communication.  As a reminder as we are going into regular cold and flu season, it is important that we continue our combined efforts to follow these guidelines.  Please continue to monitor your children and do not send them to class if they have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, etc.  Thank you so much for everyone’s enhanced awareness and efforts in keeping our dancers healthy. 

Sending a child with symptoms to class in a mask is not an acceptable solution. Please keep children home when they are sick.
