STUDENT SAFETY PROTOCOLS

We are committed to providing a safe place for students of all ages to step into a deeper sense of self, community, and the world. Please refer back to this page for the latest information on the steps we are taking at Everyman to provide a learning environment to which you feel comfortable returning. Our promise to you is clear and open communication every step of the way. Our practices, policies, and guidelines are subject to change based on public health and local government recommendations.

ADULT PROGRAMS

 

VACCINATION

Students
Students must show proof on or by the first day that they are fully vaccinated at the time of entry into the classroom on the first day. “Fully vaccinated” means that either 14 days have passed since receiving either the second dose of the authorized double-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna), or an authorized single-doc vaccine (J&J). Acceptable forms of proof include the physical vaccination card or a photo of the card on your phone with the name and date clearly visible.

There is an option to provide this status prior to the first day of class at completion of the registration form.

Students who are unable to be vaccinated due to medical conditions or religious beliefs must provide a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of class in order to join class that day

 

Employees
All Everyman Theatre staff and teaching artists are fully vaccinated.

 

THE FACILITY
 

Enhanced Cleanliness
We have enhanced our cleaning game. Lobbies, Box Office, Theatre, and all Classroom spaces are thoroughly cleaned prior to and after each class day.

No-Touch Upgrades
Our bathrooms are now all No-Touch. Toilets, faucets, soap dispensers, are all thoroughly cleaned in-between performance days.

Upgraded Air Quality
Our HVAC system is designed to pull in outside air for direct ventilation and air exchange, and we have made adjustments to allow for maximum air exchange rates.There will be full air exchange between every class session as well as consistent air exchanges at all times when the building is occupied. We have upgraded to MERV-14 filters throughout the building in order to maximize filtration in accordance with ASHRAE standards. Additionally, we have placed added high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration units in smaller, high traffic areas as recommended by the CDC.

Hand Sanitizer
Need a quick refresh? Hand Sanitzer stations are available in all classroom spaces as well as throughout the building.

Designated Spaces
Students will have designated spaces for classes and restrooms to avoid cross-over with others in the building. Education staff will track seating charts and provide each student with their own chair for class use.

 

STUDENT ENGAGEMENT
 

Check-In
Student check-in will occur in our outer vestibule. 

Face Coverings
All students will be required to wear a mask for the duration of class.

Students will be asked to complete a short questionnaire regarding their health upon arrival for each class.

Feeling Ill
Any students feeling ill for any reason should remain at home. Simply email Education@EverymanTheatre.org or call 443-776-8580 to notify us of your absence.

Class Set-Up
Students will practice social distancing and room set-ups will reflect CDC recommendations.

Enrollment
Our classes will remain intimate and reflect CDC recommendations for our size of classroom.

Supplies
All students will be provided their own individual class supplies. We ask that these live at Everyman Theatre in-between classes as we will not be supply sharing. Supplies will be cleaned in-between class sessions.

Water Bottles
We recommend drinking water frequently throughout class experiences and ask that students provide their own water bottle clearly labeled.

Social Distancing and Masking
Class exercises and staging will incorporate appropriate social distancing. Students will mask for the duration of class. 

This season we have curated class experiences to embrace all comfort levels. If you are uncomfortable and unable to commit to any of the above requirements, we would love for you to join our Virtual Class Experiences

Final Sharings of Work
If your class has a final sharing component, these sharings will be recorded for family and friends to enjoy from the safety and comfort of their home! If a final sharing does occur in-person, we will treat the patronage of the sharing as if it were a public performance and follow these guidelines

In the event Everyman Theatre needs to cancel a class refunds will be issued and/or options offered to students to use credit for future class experiences.
