DURING DANCE CLASS

Parents/guardians must be ready and prepared to collect their child from dance class at any time if they are unable to follow the required rules or if they become unwell.
Students will wait in their designated hoop with their possessions, ready for pick-up.
Students must use hand sanitiser on exit.
NO STUDENT OR TEACHER SHOULD ATTEND CLASS AT THE EMMA KATE DANCE ACADEMY IF THEY ARE DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19.
What happens if a student tests positive for Covid-19?
Should a student test positive, you must not attend class at The Emma Kate Dance Academy until the self isolation period has ended. Our Covid-19 protocols will always be in place and therefore the class will continue to be delivered. However if your child subsequently displays any symptoms we advise you to get a test.
(Following guidance from our Covid-19 risk assessment expert)
What happens if a teacher tests positive for Covid-19?
If a teacher from The Emma Kate Dance Academy tests positive for Covid-19 we will endeavour to get the relevant classes covered. However if we cannot, make-up classes will be arranged. Teachers will be tested regularly.
Parents/guardians must have read and made sure their child understands the importance of these rules before they return to dance class with The Emma Kate Dance Academy.
