Public Health & Covid-19 On Campus Class Guidelines
The Different Directions Inc. Board of Directors in conjunction with our host space The Actor’s Temple has implemented the following guidelines for all students and families to follow this while taking classes on campus and attending any in person activities organized by Different Directions Inc. or its agents. All students must have registration from on file filled out by their parent or legal guardian.
Students, Parents, Caregivers and teachers will conduct daily medical self-evaluation. Anyone who experiences COVID (or ANY COMMUNICABLE DIESE OR VIRUS) symptoms must stay home. If your child has vomited, experienced diarrhea, or had a fever within 24 hours keep your child home. We will send any child home who has experienced these symptoms within 24 hours. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD SICK TO CLASSES.
If a student is exposed to Covid they need to provide a negative PCR test (From a credited lab) before returning to class. If a member of a student's family or someone living in the same home with the student has tested positive the student needs to wait five days and take a negative Covid test before returning to class. In the event a student tests positive after five days the student will have to wait until they test negative before returning to class.
If a student, teacher or parent tests positive for Covid 19, all students who attend classes on the day or days that student attends classes will be asked to take a Covid test. Anyone who tests positive will be able to resume classes when they present a current negative test dated within three days of the class. We will use contact tracing methods to determine if any positive people have been in contact with other students or parents in our community. If deemed prudent we will shut down classes and work remotely until it is safe to come back in person. There will be no refunds or make up days for altering the schedule due to a Covid 19 break out.
All students attending Acting Out a Musical will need to either be vaccinated or bring in a weekly Covid test dated between Monday and Thursday of the week before their Friday class session.
If you or your child has traveled to high risk regions, been exposed to Covid 19 or attended a large gathering with unvaccinated unmasked people please provide a negative Covid 19 test or quarantine for 10 days before resuming classes. If you are planning on traveling or attending large events with unvaccinated unmasked people please let us know and take appropriate precautions.
