COVID-19 policies & Procedures

You must be able to answer no ti the following questions to be permitted to class each week

 1.  Has your child had close contact (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) in the last 14 days with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, or has any health department or health care provider been in contact with you and advised you to quarantine?


2.  Does your child have any of these symptoms?

  • Chills

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • New cough

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Fever

If a child is diagnosed with Covid-19 based on a test, their symptoms, or does not get a COVID-19 test but has had symptoms, they should not be at school and should stay at home until they meet the criteria below. 

A child can return when a family member can ensure that they can answer YES to ALL three questions:

  • Has it been at least 10 days since the child first had symptoms?

  • Has it been at least 24 hours since the child had a fever (without using fever reducing medicine)?

  • Has there been symptom improvement, including cough and shortness of breath?


If a child has had a negative COVID-19 test, they can return once there is no fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines and they have felt well for 24 hours.


If a child has been diagnosed with COVID-19 but does not have symptoms, they should remain out of dance until 10 days have passed since the date of their first positive COVID-19 diagnostic test, assuming they have not subsequently developed symptoms since their positive test.


If a child has been determined to have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, they should remain out of dance for 14 days since the last known contact, unless they test positive.  In which case, criteria above would apply.  They must complete the full 14 days of quarantine even if they test negative.
