In-Person Programming.
What does this mean?


StoryBook Theatre is excited to begin our first in-person session of theatre programming starting with our fall programming on October 24th.  We have been reluctant to start offering this as an option but we feel that we are able to offer our programming safely and confidently to all our students.

It is important to note that all guardians will be required to sign an Assumption of Risk, Waiver of Liability, Release and Indemnification prior to the commencement of all our in-person programming.  StoryBook Theatre will take all necessary precautions to protect all our attendees but we cannot assumer risk and liability for the choice to participate.

MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES WHEN PARTICIPATING IN CLASS

All students participating must wear a mask throughout the duration of the class.

Each class will have a designated area for "mask breaks" which will be within the classroom environment, but far enough away from the other students as not to pose a risk.

A reminder of the Alberta Health mandate regarding anyone showing any of the following symptoms must self-isolate for 10 days:  repeated cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat, difficulty breathing

Your child is not welcome to attend programming should they present any of these symptoms or you or your child answer in the affirmative to any of the standard COVID19 screening test questions found here.

DROP OFF - Front of Building

ARRIVAL

Please arrive on time but no sooner than 10 minutes prior to class. 
 

The lobby doors will be closed until that time and will be locked 5 minutes after the start of class.  The Beddington Theatre Arts Centre is NOT open to the public at this time and will therefore not be accessible for use or for anyone wishing to hang out and wait for their child.

Everyone entering the building MUST wear a mask or will not be permitted entry.  refusal to do so will result in your student being removed from the program without exception.

Please stand on the designated positions and keep your family appropriately distanced from other families.

The bathrooms will not be available for parent/guardians or sibling use and may only be accessed by students in the classroom

CHECK IN

Parents will be asked to confirm their student's name.  Over the course of the program, this should become quite quick and easy and not be required, but on day one it will be appreciated.

TEMPERATURE CHECK

The temperature of all students will be checked. The temperature must be between 35.5 degrees to 37.5 degrees.

 

Any student with a temperature below or above the safe parameters will be asked to go outside and return in 15 minutes to be checked again.  If at that time they are still not within the safe parameters, they will be asked to return home. ​

SANITIZATION

All students will then be sent to the restroom where they will be asked to wash their hands for 20 seconds.  There will be three bathrooms in use to help facilitate social distancing upon entry.  We encourage parents/guardians to share this video with their students.

DEPARTURE

Parents will then be asked to follow the signs to exit the facility.  A reminder that the facility is closed and no parent will be able to remain on-site for the duration of the classroom.

IN CLASS

Once arriving in class the students will go over all necessary safety protocols as they relate to their program including sanitization of chairs, shared supplies and space should it be a part of the teaching plan.

Masks will be required at all times and because of this students will be permitted to be closer than 2m when playing activities.

There will be no activities allowing the touching of one student to another.

Should students touch or come in contact with one another hand sanitizer will be available in multiple positions in the classroom and students will be encouraged to use it.

If any parents/guardians have any questions or concerns as they relate to the class and our COVID19 protocols please do not hesitate to reach out to us at theatreschool@storybooktheatre.org.  Please be sure to include your student's program so we can be sure to address the concern immediately.

Most importantly, we are all learning this together.  We ask you for patience and support.  We are most open to feedback especially as it relates to our ability to protect everyone and welcome it in order to learn and grow.

BREAKS & SNACKS

Students are encouraged to bring a peanut-free snack and a bottle of water.   The water fountain will not be accessible for drinking from, but we will have access to taps to refill the drinks.

The vending machine is closed and will not be available.

CLOTHING

Students should come in appropriate attire that allows them to move easily and run.  We recommend a pair of running shoes and athletic wear like track suits, t-shirts or yoga wear.

END OF CLASS

At the end of class, students will be brought to wash their hand again and line up in the lobby for departure.

PICK UP - FRONT OF BUILDING

Pick up will take place at the FRONT ENTRANCE to the lobby. 

 

The students will be lined up in the lobby and escorted to the exit.

Parents can remain at their vehicles or stand in the parking lot but will not be permitted entrance.

Please wave or gesture to the teacher that you see your child that way acknowledging they are you with you and allowing the teacher to connect.

In order to keep everyone safe, we would ask for any correspondence required to happen via email rather than waiting to talk to the teacher at the end of the class.  That email again is theatreschool@storybooktheatre.org

NOTE:  Should weather prohibit this plan an alternative will be presented that day on drop off.

PLEASE DRIVE WITH CAUTION in the parking lot.
