Keeping our students active and learning SAFELY is our top priority!  COVID-19 Protocols are in place to ensure we are doing our part to keep our community safe.  

 

We will continue to stay up-to-date on county and state guidelines.  You can count on us to be proactive, and follow all guidelines, so that risk of exposure is minimized for our LoMastro community. 

As Illinois enters into phase 5, we are excited to announce the following changes to our protocol.  Effective Monday June 14, 2021

Lobby and Common Areas

  • Our lobby and common areas are open for drop-off and pick-up.  Parents/caregivers should escort their child to and from the lobby.  Once the dancer is settled, parents/caregivers will leave and return at the end of class for pick-up.

 

Masks & Social Distancing

Current guidance allows students to remove their masks when dancing/active with social distancing.  We followed the same guidance in June-July 2020 and there were no known cases of spread at LoMastro.  While we are excited to see everyone’s faces again, we also know some families may want their child to remain masked.  Some staff and students will choose to continue to wear masks while in the classroom and we ask that everyone respect that decision.  

  • Masks are required by non-vaccinated individuals in all common areas (foyer, lobby, hallways).

  • Once in the classroom, masks are optional for all students. Parents who wish for their child to remain masked while in the classroom need to communicate that to their child. Please also email us so that we are aware of your preference.

  • We’ll continue to support social distancing to the greatest extent possible in the classrooms.

  • Our fully vaccinated faculty/staff have the choice to wear a mask or not while teaching.  

 

​As we begin to return to a pre-pandemic lifestyle we fully understand that some families may need or want to be more cautious.  Please feel free to reach out to discuss any concerns you may have and we’ll work together to find a solution.
