YES Success #6: SAFETY!
Safety is our top priority at YPAC!
If you’re new to the YES Success blog series, we have been highlighting the key components to a successful Year End Show! You can catch up on all the other segments by clicking HERE!
The most important component on the part of the YPAC team is ensuring the safety and security of every child participating in the Year End Show. With that in mind, we have created some safety measures to enable for secure pick-up and drop-off and thus the safety of our YPAC community!
YES Success: Pick-Up/Drop-Off for Dress Rehearsal
Parents or guardians should bring the students to drop off area, where they will be checked in and placed under the supervision of the designated YPAC YES Leader. Parents or guardians must remain in the auditorium until their children have been dismissed. Students will be dismissed from rehearsal once they have completed all of their routines. When a class has completed its last performance, the leader will bring the group to the designated color pick up area. (Your color pick-up area can be found on your YES Information Letter!) Parents are not allowed in the dressing rooms once the children have been checked in for the rehearsal.
YES Success: Pick-Up/Drop-Off for YES day
Parents or guardians should bring the students to drop off area, where they will be checked in and placed under the supervision of the designated YPAC YES Leader. Parents or guardians must remain in the auditorium until their children have been dismissed. Students will remain backstage for the entire performance. After the final number, the YPAC Leaders will bring the groups to the designated color pick up area. All YPAC Leaders have a record of where each student’s family is seated in case of emergency.
Safety is a top priority at YPAC. Part of having a great experience with the Year End Show is knowing that your child is safe. Additionally, the students themselves need to feel safe, and we feel that our systems in place really make them feel that way. They are under the care and supervision of responsible adults at all times backstage and we ensure that they are safely picked up by a designated parent or guardian when the show is over!
