Health and Safety FAQ
Are studio camps and classes open this fall?
We plan to open for fall with new health and safety measures strictly in place. Read this FAQ to learn more about these measures.
How are you preparing to reopen your studios?
We will be following the guidelines set by the county. One to 1.5 hour weekly classes will be offered in the fall. Studios will be limited to no more than 12 students at a time with the same kids in the same group each class every week. Studio layouts and seating arrangements are adjusted to allow for social distancing. Bathrooms are all updated with new hand air dryers. Art supplies will not be shared. Fifteen minute breaks are built between all classes to ensure time to clean and disinfect the studio. Students must wear their art clothes or personal aprons to class; communal aprons will not be available.
What is your make-up class policy?
In order to maintain a stable of group of students week after week, make-ups for missed classes will not be allowed.
What is your current refund policy?
If any camps or classes are cancelled by The Marvegos, parents will receive full refunds. We will provide at least 5 days’ notice if any changes are made.
If parents cancel all or part of a class registration, they will receive a credit towards future purchases instead of a refund.
What is your mask policy?
Face coverings or masks must be worn at all times by employees and students. Employees will also wear face shields.
What is your hand washing protocol?
We will also do our best to avoid and discourage as much physical contact with other students and teachers as possible. All students entering our studios will begin their day by washing their hands for 20 seconds. Hand sanitizers will be provided in the studio. Our teachers wash their hands at least once an hour largely to remove art materials, which will dually serve to prevent spread of illness. Students will be instructed to thoroughly wash their hands after class. Hands are dried with disposable paper towels or air blowers.
How often do you clean?
Staff will be using disinfectant to clean high use items such as tables, chairs, handles, sinks, and restrooms, as well as shared supplies and tools, before class, after class, and as much as possible throughout the day. Fifteen minute breaks are built between all classes to ensure time to clean.
Can we bring personal items?
Yes, but please limit items to reusable water bottles, jackets/sweaters, and other essential items. Toys and other non-essential items must be left home until further notice.
How are you handling drop-off and pick-up? Why can’t I enter the studio?
During drop-off and pick-up, remain outside the studio unless a staff member instructs otherwise. A teacher will send your child out to you. As a social distancing measure, we are limiting direct contact and exposure to students and staff.
What is your sick policy for kids?
All sick kids, regardless of the nature of the sickness, are not permitted at camp, including kids with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher. All parents are required to check their child’s temperature and monitor for symptoms of illness such as fever, cough, sore throat, chills, aches or runny nose before camp each day. We will also check the temperature of every person entering the studio.
What is your sick policy for employees?
All sick employees, regardless of the nature of the sickness, are not permitted to work, including employees with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher.
How are you monitoring for exposure to COVID-19?
We ask that parents inform our staff as soon as they or their children show COVID symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has been tested positive.
