For the health and safety of all of our SDFC families, please read and follow our health and safety policies. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
1. Fever. Any temperature of 100.4° Fahrenheit is a fever, and dancers shouldn’t go to their dance classes. While giving them medicine might bring the fever down, it won’t stop them from being contagious. Dancer should be fever-free for 24 hours (without ibuprofen or acetaminophen) before coming back to classes.
2. Vomiting or diarrhea. Please do not send your dancer to dance classes with vomiting or diarrhea no matter how well they might look to you. The same 20-24 hour rule applies. Some viruses, such as norovirus, can be contagious for an extra day, please don’t help the spread of these viruses.
3. Persistent Coughing. Please use your best judgment with excessive coughing; though winter coughs are common, a persistent cough could not only make it hard for the dancers to learn, but it also spreads germs throughout the classroom.
* If you child has asthma, please inform the front desk of proper instructions for emergency inhaler
For the safety of our dancers, if a dancer has limitations due to injury that prohibit them from participating in regular dance class for more than 1 week, documentation from the physician outlining the restrictions and a timeline for the restrictions is required.
If your dancer has found they have lice PLEASE inform SDFC immediately so we can take the proper precautions to limit the spread. Due to the nature of our business, SDFC has adopted the No Nit Policy. With the close contact dancers have with one another and the use of dance mats, there is a higher rate of the spread of head lice. After lice has been treated, it is advised that a second treatment be administered 7 days after the first treatment.
* Please note that this is for the safety and health of all of our dancers.
– A “no nit” policy means that children are not allowed in school with any nits (lice eggs) in the hair.
– Dancers can return to class after no nits are seen in their hair. Please check at the front desk for further assistance.
