Safety Protocols and Guidelines
The Spruill Center for the Arts has implemented policies and procedures to ensure a safe, fun, and creative environment for our students. Our specific policies and procedures are as follows:
Hand sanitizing stations are set up at all entrances to the building. Once students enter the building they should sanitize their hands using the sanitizer provided.
All staff, instructors, and students are required to wear face masks while in the building and during their class. Each individual is responsible for providing their own covering; however, additional masks are on hand in case of breakage or if a mask becomes dirty. Spruill will be reviewing the mask requirements again July 1, 2021.
All classrooms have been equipped with a medical grade filtration system that completely cleans an 840 s.f. room every 30 minutes. Each unit features Medical Grade H13 Filters (higher rated than True HEPA) that remove 99.9% of air particles.
Each room is supplied with its own sanitizer and supply of paper towels, disinfectant spray, and other cleaning supplies. All class spaces are cleaned after each use with proper PPE gear by Spruill. Contracted cleaning crews and the City of Dunwoody clean common areas such as hallways and restrooms continuously throughout the day.
Whenever possible, each student should bring their own supplies and materials that they will utilize during class. Any shared equipment is sanitized after each use.
For Summer Camp, campers will be checked-in and checked-out in a contactless manner. Prior to entering, all campers will be asked about any symptoms they may be experiencing as outlined above. Any campers exhibiting these symptoms will be asked to return to home.
If you or anyone in your home is feeling sick, please stay home. Symptoms may appear 2-10 days after exposure to the COVID-19 virus. A list of symptoms can be found here.
Other Non-COVID Security Measures Spruill has implemented since reopening June 2020:
- New Security Cameras and Security System have been installed inside and outside the building
- Classrooms lock daily at 5pm and must have a keycard to open
- Exterior entrances/exits lock at 10pm daily
- Improved lighting in the back parking lot and pathway to the library parking lot
