In order to reduce community spread of contagious viruses, we followguidelines from our industry associations More Than Just Great Dancing!® and Youth Protection Advocates in Dance. YPAC understands thatunlike older children and adults, young children cannot be expected to maintain social distancing at all times. Therefore, YPAC focuses on aJun 23, 2023
hierarchy of measures beginning with keeping ill people home, followed by frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices, amplifiedcleaning, and curricular and facility adaptations to minimize contact and mingling where possible. All group studio classes are offered livevia Zoom with our Tech Enabled Studios . In the event a class is unable to be held at the studio, classes will convert to an online learningplatform until in-studio classes can resume.SAFETYYPAC strives to provide the best quality and care to all students and their families. These safety guidelines must be taken into greatconsideration. Parents/Guardians will need to drop off their child and watch them walk into the building or walk them to the door. Forstudent safety, our centers are only open to staff who has been background checked and students. Parents/Guardians are welcome to waitin their cars or leave and come back for pickup. Parents/Guardians need to make the center aware if someone beside themselves will bedropping off or picking up the student. Parents/Guardians need to be punctual when arriving to pick up their child. Instructors and lobbyhosts have prior obligations and commitments and cannot take on the responsibility of looking after a child and waiting until aparent/guardian arrives. Thank you for your understanding.DISCIPLINEYPAC is an active advocate of safety, quality, and care. Students who choose to exhibit behavior that is disrespectful, unsafe, or harmful willbe asked to observe class instead of participating. If the situation does not show improvement, the student will be asked to leave the class,and their parents will be called. If the situation is becoming uncontrollable, the student’s parents will be called and asked to immediatelypick up the student (in a case like this, the student may be told that they can no longer attend class). YPAC hopes that these incidents willnever arise; however, to provide the best quality, safety, and care, this needs to be implemented.LOST AND FOUNDA lost and found basket is located in the lobby. Please check the lost and found basket regularly as all lost and found items are donated onthe 1st and the 15th of each month.INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICYIn the event of inclement weather, an email and text will be sent and a social media post made by 2pm if classes are canceled (by 8am formorning classes).
