HERE ARE OUR CURRENT POLICIES
Masks. Are mandatory for all at this stage and will be available in the lobby. Performances and Performance Workshops are the only exception to mask-wearing, only when social distancing in the larger Studio A can be ensured.
Temperature. Upon entry, the front desk staff will take temperatures of all employees and students with touch-less forehead thermometers. If the temperature is above 100.4F, you will be asked kindly to proceed home.
Medical Screening. Students ( and staff ) should not come to the FBAA facility if they have or have had in the past 14 days a cough, a fever, shortness of breath, difficulties breathing, flu-like symptoms, gastrointestinal upset, or experienced a loss of taste or smell. We will be happy to provide an online zoom lesson or a pre-recorded make up video for your missed lesson.
Parents please wait in the car and drop off students. For now, we will eliminate the lobby for waiting parents and guardians. Students, please remain in their cars until lesson time. Front desk staff will help facilitate social distance entry and exit.
Lessons. Only scheduled lesson students and scheduled staff are permitted into the FBAA facility. Lessons will finish 2-3 minutes early to allow for students to exit following social distance guidelines and teachers and staff to clean equipment before every lesson.
Limit what you bring to the lesson. Bag with music and/or acting books or folder, pencil or pen, water bottle ( as water fountain will be unavailable ). No cell phone use please during the lesson.
Plexiglass Shields. Will be available in Studios 1-8 ( Studio 9 is a recording room so has an in-built wall ). A physical barrier between student and teacher. Also one at the front desk.
Hand Sanitizer. Hand sanitizer will be available in the lobby and all teaching studios.
Air Filtration & Sanitizing System. NEW state of the art air purification on our HVAC which kills molds, bacterias, and viruses + each lesson room with an internal air filtration machine, creating a safer learning environment.
Deep Clean. Elevated cleaning & sanitizing daily and between every lesson and class. No use of water fountain.
Quarantine Procedure. 14 Days for Exposed Students.
14 Days for Covid 19 Test Positive Students + no symptoms ( fever, cough, shortness of breath ) for 24 hours. For Covid 19 Test Positive Students, a letter from your doctor or the health dept. ( anything accepted by your school ) to return to FBAA is required and very much appreciated.
