What we are doing to provide a safe student environment...
We have been cleaning and preparing our studio with the most effective disinfectant systems and sanitation procedures, along with expanding on our already active Guidelines & Procedures for Studio Cleaning & Safe Practices.
HEALTH CHECK & LOBBY ACCESS
Temperature Check - Per state guidelines, please be prepared to have your temperature checked using a non-contact thermometer. Persons registering a temperature of 100.4 degrees or over will not be allowed to enter the lobby area.
Face Mask Recommended - All persons entering KKS are recommended to wear a face mask. Face masks are not required. Students will not be required to wear a face mask while participating in dance class.
We have great KKS Face Masks for sale right at KKS Apparel Co for $5.99 each. We have Toddler, Youth & Adult Sizes available.
Lobby Access - KKS is open for DROP OFF, PICK UP & SHOPPING! No waiting during classes will be permitted. We appreciate your understanding to keep lobby capacity low so student capacity can be high.
All faculty are fully trained into a cleaning force at our studio & will mobilize in disinfecting all high touch & high traffic areas after each class at the studio.
All faculty will have their temperature taken before their shift and will be provided a free studio facemask for use.
All of us here at KKS will help students with handwashing before class & the use of our studio hand sanitizers before & after class.
All faculty are fully trained on positive re-enforcement & sensitivity to all student’s emotional needs during high stress times.
AIR PURIFIERS WITH TRUE HEPA FILTER TECHNOLOGY
We have purchased a True HEPA Filter Air Purifiers for the studio. The CDC recommends the addition of air purifiers to aid in the prevention of virus spread.
In addition we have purchased and will continually using a higher efficient air filter for all our HVAC Systems. True HEPA filters will filter out completely microns down to .3 microns with 99.97% efficiency rate.
DAILY DEEP CLEAN
We are using industrial strength cleaners to perform daily deep cleaning on all surfaces in the studio on a continuous basis at the end of each day of studio use.
For more general, ongoing cleaning, we are using a hospital grade and EPA registered disinfectant solution that kills 99.9% germs & viruses.
General cleaning will be performed in between all classes throughout the night upon class change.
SANITIZER STATIONS & HAND SANITIZER PUMPS
We have sanitizer stations located in each ballroom and throughout the studio which contain medical grade disinfectants for surface wipe downs.
There are more hand sanitizer pumps available in all ballrooms and through the studio for student & faculty use.
Safety Measures at the Studio
We are closely following the CDC and state health guidelines to facilitate social distancing, and want to ensure that all of our students have enough comfortable space to learn in.
We will have 5 minutes between classes in order to properly enter & exit the building without large numbers.
INCREASED SPACE BETWEEN STUDENTS
You will notice deliberate spacing between chairs in the lobby and students in class.
We will have markers for line up to go across the floor.
NEW CUBBIE & STUDENT BAG POLICY
Our dance cubbies will be cleaned nightly.
Students will be asked to bring into the studio one dance bag and one water bottle for their use for the time of class. Please refrain from multiple bags & needing to change clothing.
Student bags & student belongings will be placed around the border of the room for proper distancing if needed.
REDUCED CLASS SIZE OR CLASSES
Our availability of class size is determined by state guidelines which is set by the amount of people in a class based on square footage and proper 6’ social distancing.
We are adding a 5 minute buffer between classes for cleaning.
NEW PORTABLE BALLET BARRES
We have made brand new portable Ballet Barres for our student’s use.
Students will have bar locations to ensure proper learning space.
All Ballet Barres will be cleaned after each class.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Helping to keep our communities safe and healthy is top priority and there are a few things you can do to follow the current CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Most importantly, if you feel sick, have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing or in the last 2 weeks been in close contact with a person suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, please stay home to rest and recover.
USE HAND SANITIZER
Use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home. If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is sick and other household members.
WASH YOUR HANDS
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
