2020 Summer Classes
Hello Summer Campers!!
We are so excited to get started with you! Obviously we need to explain our Summer Protocols so that you can make a comfortable decision for your family. So here we go! There are limited spaces available in our camps!
This will be the only chance for adults to be in the studio (see below). We recommend all students stop by to check out the studio and acclimate to the space for everyone's comfort. You will have a chance to meet the instructors and make any purchases that you might need.
Monday, May 25, 2020 from 4:30-7:30pm
When dropping off Campers we ask that you bring them to the front steps where we will take each child's temperature. Please do not enter the building while we maintain our limited # of persons in one space. Adults will not have the option to stay in the lobby this Summer because of the state guidelines.
Based on current state guidelines:
Instructors will have their temps taken and hand sanitize before each camp.
Once inside, campers will hand sanitize. Before exiting the building campers will hand sanitize.
In case of any accidental touching, campers will wash hands and/or hand sanitize for each occurrence.
Campers will be instructed to remain 6ft apart for each activity.
Masks are required for campers. The existence of a Medical Exemption should be noted upon enrollment.
Campers are asked to wear a mask to enter and exit the building as this is a busy time with many moving parts.
Instructors will will wear masks during classes.
During physical instruction, instructors will face away from the campers and maintain a safe 6ft distance.
Friday performances may be set up for live-stream as we cannot have additional people inside the studio.
If your child is inconsolable, we will call you to pick-up and try again the next day.
During snacktime, we will be sitting in our safe spaces 6ft apart. Please pack your camper a fruit or vegetable with water as a snack. This helps us to avoid any allergies.
If your child has an epipen, please notify the instructor on the first day of the following:
What your camper is allergic to
What signs your camper will show that we should look for
How to use the epipen
Each camper should bring a bag to camp. Bags should be labeled with your campers last name. Snacks, water and dance shoes should be the only things inside your campers bag. If you camper removes his/her mask, this is where he/she will place it. Toys must be kept at home.
The studio will be disinfected each night after camp.
Withdrawal - based on sudden illness
If your camper or someone in your home is exhibiting flu-like symptoms or has tested positive within 14 days, please notify GCAPA by email so that we may act accordingly. Please email a doctor's note outlining the symptoms so that we may credit your tuition to Fall or Summer 2022 tuition.
We ask that you keep in mind that we are a small business who got hit hard during this pandemic. This sudden business shut-down not only devastated us financially at the moment, but caused many families to withdraw until the following Spring. We will be feeling the repercussions of this until 2022. We ask that you notify us of any potential illness of anyone in your household or contact so that we may do the same.
It is OUR obligation to notify our families of any potential hazard. We cannot do that if you keep quiet or make light of contact tracing. Please do not be the cause of our families getting sick and our having to shut down. We will never say your name, but we need to know to keep everyone safe and to avoid the studio being shut down. We thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation.
We thank you so much for choosing Grand Central for your Summer Camp and look forward to an awesome, fun, safe Summer!!!
Miss Wendi and the GCAPA Crew
