All of our COVID protocols from summer are still in place, so they should look pretty familiar to you. However, I did want to share our statement endorsed by our board about COVID safety protocols from the upcoming school year:

ACT continues to monitor recommendations from the CDC, Washington State Health Department, and ArtsWA to help make informed and safe choices for the students to continue to participate in person at ACT. The following are the steps we are taking at ACT in order to ensure our students safety:

  • All students and staff will remain masked at all times (unless drinking water).
  • All students and staff will use social distancing while at ACT (3ft for outdoor spaces, 6ft for indoor)
  • All spaces will be wiped down and sanitized after classes
  • All students and staff will have their temp checked at the start of class; if their temp is over 100.4 degrees students and staff will be asked to go home.
  • IF you are experiencing ANY symptoms or feeling sick in ANY WAY please stay home. We are happy to provide an online link to view and participate in class. If your student or an immediate family member has been in close contact, as defined by the CDC, please let us know ASAP.
  • Class sizes are being limited to allow for safety.
  • If a student or staff member at ACT tests positive for COVID and your student has been in close contact, as defined by the CDC, you’ll be notified as soon as we find out. The students or staff’s information will be kept private.
  • If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID or an immediate family member tests positive ACT will ask that the student or staff member is kept home for 10 days.
  • **All current on-site ACT staff members, teachers, and volunteers are fully vaccinated**.

By using these guidelines and keeping updated on recommendations ACT has managed to keep our door open and in-person classes going. We hope with your help and cooperation we are able to help keep our building a safe place as we enter our upcoming school year. While we hope to remain in person, ACT is ready to move online if needed.

Please check back with this page, prior to heading to class. As guidelines change rapidly and we will use this page to keep our patrons updated. If you have any further questions or concerns please email us at info@actstff.org
