update for COVID 19 plans

Dear parents and students of Grandstreet Summer Theatre School,

We are writing to let you know that, like you, we at Grandstreet Theatre School are continuing to closely monitor the situation regarding the Coronavirus.

 

The answer to the first question is YES!  We are still planning on our summer theatre school mini -camps and the big camp (July 13-25). Please be assured that, as always, our first priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students and faculty. Accordingly, we are taking steps to ensure that we are fostering a healthy learning environment. Of course this is assuming that Montana and Lewis and Clark County continue to move forward in a positive direction and the Governor moves us beyond Phase 1.

HERE ARE THE CHANGES THAT WILL BE MADE TO SUMMER CAMPS:

 

  • We are increasing our disinfection practices. In our spaces we will be wiping down all surfaces (including armrests, railings, door handles, sink faucets, etc) with disinfectant before and after rehearsals and classes.

 

  • All students will go straight to their showcase rehearsal spaces in the morning (no big gathering in the theatre) for the opening of camp (9:00 a.m.) and we will do something fun with them in a small group. They will stay with that group throughout the day.

 

  • All students will have their temperature read with a medical grade thermometer at the beginning of the day.

 

  • All students attending class will wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, as a group activity before each class. Hand sanitizer will also be available. We will also remind them to avoid touching their faces with unwashed hands, and to always cover their mouth and nose properly when they cough or sneeze. We are working on the logistics and trying to come up with fun ways to make this happen too.  They will wash before we start, before lunch, after lunch, at break mid-afternoon and before they leave.

 

  • It is quite probable that everyone will be required to wear a mask.

 

  • All classes will be held to under 22 people (including the instructor and an assistant) most of them will be about 17 people, if the space allows that number while remaining six feet apart. If it becomes necessary we will take that number down to 10. Several of these classrooms will be outside.

 

  • Showcase performances will be changed to accommodate either social distancing for the audience and performers or it will be recorded and shown via youtube, vimeo, etc.

 

  • Lunch will be held at Constitution Park and Hill Park in order to keep the students a little more spread out than usual.

 

  • The first mini-camp (Improv) June 15-19 will be held online. Kev Hamm will be teaching it.  Improv works surprisingly well online and we’re excited about this opportunity. The second mini camp (Acting) June 22-26 will be limited to 10 people.

 

  • One- to three (depending on age) classrooms during summer theatre school (July 13-25) will be dedicated to remote/online learning. In other words, if you feel better taking classes from home we will have teachers who will teach classes for you on ZOOM.  And yes, we have all the security measures for locking a ZOOM classroom. You will need to have a good internet connection, a private space where you can move around and make sure to pack a lunch!
  • Make sure you have filled out the medical release form and enrollment agreement provided to you on our BAND app.

One last reminder, please be sure to keep sick children at home and to follow the advice of your health care professionals with regard to your entire family’s health.

Be well. See you this summer!
