CLEANING & SAFETY
The safety of our community has always been one of our core values at Sukha Arts Center. Now more than ever, we'll be making considerations and decisions with safety as our guiding principle. We've made a few upgrades... here's what you can expect:
UPGRADED AIR FILTRATION:
New HEPA air filters to improve and promote air purification studio wide. In addition to new air filters we will be opening windows weather permitting for additional air flow.
STAFF HEALTH CHECK:
Every staff member and instructor will have their temperature checked before their shift. When necessary, we’ll follow our elevated temperature protocol.
If State or Federal Government mandates face coverings for staff and students, all Sukha Arts Center staff will abide by this regulation.However if no mandate is in place and face coverings are simply recommended we will not require staff or students to wear face coverings unless they make the personal decision to wear a face covering in public.
If at anytime you feel a face covering impedes your health, or is causing you to over heat you may remove your face mask. Clips will be provided to clip masks onto your person to avoid left behind face coverings.
Hand sanitizer will be made available at the entrance way upon entering Sukha and in all studios.
All Sukha Arts Center staff will be using hand sanitizer as they enter the building.
All students will be made aware of our hand sanitizing station and encouraged to use it as they enter.
Each studio is equipped with a fully stocked restroom. Staff and students will be encouraged to wash hands as needed and in between classes.
Staff members will be taking part in deep cleaning before and after each class, washing their hands in between.
Every floor and surface in the studio will be sanitized daily using top grade disinfectant, known to kill viruses like Covid-19.
All touch points (ballet barres, door knobs, hand rails, phones, desk tops, light switches, bathrooms,iPads, educator equipment, keyboards, remotes, phones, etc.) will be sanitized between classes.
Bathrooms will be fully stocked with soap and disposable paper towels at all times.
In addition to our full time employee dedicated to maintenance and cleaning the entire Sukha staff will be adopting new cleaning protocols before, in between and after classes.
CLOSING & COVID-19 PROTOCOLS:
STATEWIDE MANDATED SHUT DOWN:
In the event NJ experiences another statewide mandatory closing, Sukha will close as instructed and pause all classes and payments. As soon as NJ allows Sukha will promptly reopen, resume classes and payments. In this situation we will not move to Zoom classes however we will offer private one on one instructions and private zoom classes as a separate cost/add on.
For the 2020-2021 season we will limiting studio capacity and totally disinfecting in between each class before the next group comes in. If any student or teacher notifies us that someone has been exposed or diagnosed with COVID-19 we will move that class to Zoom for two weeks to mitigate exposure. If we feel necessary we reserve the right to use a "snow day" the following day to shut down and deep clean as an extra precaution. In this event we will allow students to utilize our make up policy!
ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY:
Sukha has adopted a zero tolerance policy. Please stay home if you are feeling under the weather. If any Sukha staff notices any symptoms of flu or cold like symptoms we will reach out for an early pick up and assist you in scheduling a make up class.
WHERE TO ENTER & EXIT:
Sukha will use its main door as an entrance only. To make it easy you can pull right up, drop off, and exit the parking lot! By making this an entrance only you will never have to worry about over crowding at the main door.We will be using our emergency exit (visible from the street) as our main exit. All students will be made aware of where to enter and exit their very first day of class. To pick up you may park on either side of the street!
SOME MORE DETAILS:
We will be asking that all students arrive and depart promptly to help each changeover be seamless!
We will ask that all parents drop off and pick up only, and do not wait inside of Sukha Arts Center. This will help us crowding and limiting our capacity!
All communal props will be removed until further notice.
Aerial hammocks will be washed after each class.
Pre-registration for all classes and make up classes will be required.
A FEW SUKHA TIPS:
Label all water bottles to avoid accidentally grabbing a water bottle that isn't yours!!
Stay home if you aren't feeling good, rest up, get better and come back to class!
Wash your hands! The soap at Sukha smells fabulous (don't believe us? give it a try!)
There will be more updates as we learn and find out more! Thank you for being the absolute best students and families in the world!
