    Amanda Newman is a wife and mother of two children who are her biggest supporters and motivators. From an early age, she was an eager student of all the arts. She has been blessed to be surrounded by women with a variety of hand stitching skills, passed down to them through generations. She’s very excited to share these and other techniques she has learned with the next generation of eager students. As Amanda has grown up, those little early investments have grown into a life calling to mission work in Rwanda Africa where she gets to teach the women there skills to create products that she brings home to sell for them. It has grown into a business called COPO that sells their products all over the United States. Amanda sees the Lord answer in her own life over and over her prayer from Psalm 90:17 “May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us– yes, establish the work of our hands.” She cannot wait to see what the Lord does with the work of those little hands she is trusted with.

CLEMENT KIDS COVID-19 RULES & REGULATIONS

· Class Size: Our class sizes will range from 4-7 students to ensure space for social distancing within our building.
· Monitoring Classes: Our Executive Director, Carmen Overton, and Clement Kids Director, Amelia Cox will be welcoming students before every class and be available in the building to help monitor each Clement Kids class this fall semester.
· Entrance/Exit: We will have one entrance door and one exit door for all students coming and leaving classes. The first door on the right outside of our building will be used for entering/dropping off students and the second door on the right (near the CA offices) will be used for exiting/picking up students.
· Entrance Procedures: Temperatures will be taken by scanning foreheads before students enter the building. Students will not be touched during this process and the Clement Arts Staff Member will be wearing a mask. Hand sanitizer will be available upon entering the building. Instructors will gather students shortly before classes begin. If a student is running late then Carmen or Amelia will walk students back to the classroom once they arrive. Those with a temperature of 100.4 or higher won’t be allowed to remain on the property.
· Exit Procedures: Instructors will walk students out of the exit door following classes and stand with students until each student is picked up by their parent/guardian.
· Classroom: Students will have specified chairs in the art and music rooms and space in the dance studio to ensure they are distanced from other students.
· Ballet Shoes: We are requesting that ballerinas wear a slip on shoe (or another shoe) to walk in our building to the dance studio and bring their ballet shoes to change into once they walk into the studio. They will have a space outside of our studio for their shoes.
· Masks: At this time masks are not required by the state of GA, however the CDC does recommend the use, so we will do what is best for each circumstance. Our instructors will wear masks (except when dancing), and we request that any adult in our building wear a mask. We recommend that students wear them when arriving and departing as there are multiple classes beginning and ending around the same time on class days. We understand that your child may have sensory issues and we want to respect that wearing a mask might be a hindrance for them. Please do what you feel is best for your family. We will have disposable masks available and are offering for one to be purchased for your child when registering for classes.
· Waiting Room: Our waiting room will be closed until further notice as there is not a large enough space for social distancing indoors for families to wait while classes are in session. The doors to our building will be unlocked and parents/guardians will have access to their children at all times.
· Outdoor Waiting Space: Greenspace behind our building is open for playing/waiting with families until classes conclude for the day. Clement Arts will not be held responsible for any injuries or illness that occurs while waiting during classes.
· Playground: The playground is open. Clement Arts is not responsible for any injuries that may occur on the playground if entered. Please supervise children in your care.
· Watching Classes: Parents are welcome to watch the first few weeks of ballet lessons from our hallway area or window that looks into our studio. A mask will be required inside our building for adults and social distancing is required while watching classes.
· Water Fountain: Our water fountain will be closed and we encourage our students (especially dancers) to bring a filled water bottle with them to class.
· Bathrooms: Men and women’s bathrooms will be available for use and will be sanitized at the end of each class day. Social distancing is required.
· Cleaning Procedures: All surfaces and supplies and bathrooms will be sanitized in between classes and at the end of each class day. Routine cleaning of surfaces, such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, sinks, toilets, etc.
· Coronavirus symptoms and diagnoses: Students and employees who test positive for COVID-19 must remain in isolation at home for 14 days. They may return to classes or after symptoms have resolved and they are fever-free without medication for the last three days of isolation. Persons within the class/organization of a student or instructor who has tested positive for COVID-19 will be notified. All students and instructors who are diagnosed must test negative or be quarantined for 14 days and be asymptomatic for three days before returning to class.
· Hand sanitizer will be available in all classrooms and upon entering the building.
· If a student shows any signs of illness or has a fever before entering our building, then we will discuss the student not participating in class on that day. If your child shows any signs or symptoms of illness, please do not come to class and take any necessary health measures.
· If a student needs their parent/guardian at any point during classes, then Carmen or Amelia will call the number on file immediately.
· Clement Arts will not be held responsible for any injuries or illness that occurs while classes are in session.
· These requirements and recommendations will be reviewed as the semester progresses and may be relaxed as guidance and conditions warrant. We plan to follow guidelines from the CDC and our city and state health officials.
· Under Georgia law, there is no liability for an injury or death of an individual entering these premises if such injury or death results from the inherent risks of contracting COVID-19. You are assuming this risk by entering these premises.
· During the first week of classes we will have each parent/guardian sign a hard copy of these regulations stating that you understand and agree to the above requirements and recommendations.
· Please email any questions to Amelia Cox at amelia@clement-arts.org.
