ACT’s Current Health Guidelines:
• Masks are optional at the theatre, but ACT will provide masks for anyone who would like one.
• Students and staff are encouraged to keep socially distant with minimal contact.
• Cleaning wipes and hand sanitizer will be available to help keep the space and students safe and clean.
• If your student is feeling sick even in the littlest amount. Please keep them home. If students are feeling sick or showing any flu or cold-like symptoms, we may call parents to have the student picked up early.

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. While we hope to remain in person, ACT is ready to move online if needed.
