FOR YEARS, THE ROSE HAS BEEN A TRUSTED FRIEND FOR YOUNG ARTISTS. As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, The Rose looks forward to returning to what we do best: inspiring young people through the magic of the performing arts. The safety of our students is always our primary consideration.
We re-commit to being a place where your student can learn and grow safely and securely.
From onstage performances to classroom experience, we are dedicated to the health and well-being of every individual. We have instituted some protocols for Rose classes, and we ask for your cooperation and that you partner with us to ensure the safety of our students, our families, our teaching artists and staff.
Our procedures continue to evolve as we learn more from health officials. We will provide more information as it becomes available. We reserve the right to cancel any class or convert classes to a digital format, if circumstances require.
We will operate under the guidelines of medical experts at the local, state and federal level, with strict adherence to the following safety protocols:
• Only students will be allowed to enter the building. Students will check-in with their Rose ID with a touchless scanner. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes prior to the start of class. • All persons entering the building must wear a mask for the duration of their time, including during class. • Parents will drop off and pick up at the curb. Rose staff will facilitate student entry and exit from the building and get students to the proper room. Parents may not enter the building. The lobby is not available for parents waiting for students in class. • All staff and students entering the building will have their temperature taken. Anyone with a temperature at 100.4 or over will be separated from others and sent home. • Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 must self-quarantine for a period of 72 hours before being readmitted to class. • Students should arrive dressed for class. Changing rooms will not be available. • Class sizes will be limited to allow for social distancing. • Social distancing of 6 feet between the next person will be enforced at all times, including during class and when putting on shoes. Students will not participate in choreography that brings them within 6 feet of another student. • Hand sanitizer will be available in each room and will be distributed by the teacher at various times throughout the class. • Each class will have the same teacher(s) and will stay in one designated room. Classes will not mix with other classrooms at any time. • Drinking fountains will not be available. Students must bring their own food/drink and no food/drink will be shared. • Cubbies are available only for coats. • Restrooms are available and usage will be monitored to maintain social distancing. • Signage in the lobby, classroom and restroom areas will reinforce the social distancing, mask-wearing and hand washing expectations. • Students should leave promptly at the end of the class. There will be no congregating or socializing in hallways or lobby. • Students who are not feeling well (or who have a family member who is unwell) are asked to stay home. Students not feeling well during class will be separated from the group and sent home. • Lost and found items will be discarded at the end of each day.
In addition to the requirements listed above, The Rose will engage in strict cleaning protocols:
• High touch points such as door handles will be cleaned hourly. • Studio floors, barres and surfaces will be cleaned after each class. For classes/camps lasting longer than one hour, rooms will be cleaned every two hours. • Lunch tables and chairs will be disinfected before and after usage. • Restrooms will be cleaned every two hours. • Other cleaning such as vacuuming, cleaning mirrors, sanitizing surfaces will be done at the end of each day.
Protocols regarding students and their families/households:
• If a student tests positive for COVID-19 all CDC guidelines are followed including a 10-day quarantine after the positive test or onset of symptoms; and one day has passed with no fever and there is improvement in any other symptoms such as coughing or shortness of breath;.
• If a student has been tested and is awaiting the results they may not attend classes until the test results have been received.
