Below are our new COVID-19 policies to keep everyone safe!
We are following the guideline updates and will revise our policies if they change per the CDC, the EEC and Governor Baker
We have reduced our class size to an 8 student maximum. This enables our tables to be 6 feet apart in all directions. We will be conducting most of our class with the kids sitting at their desks in order to maintain safe distance.
We will ask that keep your kids with you until we open the door for the start of class in order to limit gathering inside or at the door. Once we open the door, we will send your child in to their table. Please DO NOT send your child to camp if they have any illness symptoms. At the end of class, we will send your child out to your car.
After every class, we will sanitize the tables, chairs, machines, bathroom, door handles, and any other high touch areas. For multi-day camps, we will sanitize the individual boxes and contents at the end of the week. We will encourage hand washing and will have a bottle of hand sanitizer at each table.
We are requiring everyone to wear a face mask to our camps while inside. During our breaks outside, the kids can remove them. The teachers will also wear a face mask for the whole class.
We have moved our shared materials into individual boxes which will remain at each student's desk for the duration of the week. We have also installed cubbies for the students to store any snack or additional belongings while they are at Sew Studio.
If our class is over 2.5 hours, we will be breaking halfway through and will take the students outside -weather permitting- and have them sit 6 feet apart to enjoy their snacks. Students will be required to bring their own snacks and water each day.
The CDC recommends that windows stay open, however, since we do not have this option, we have added screens to our doors so we can leave them open when appropriate.
We have added a projector so we can have large instructional pictures on the wall to help the kids with the projects minimizing our hands on time.
Sharing soft toys is not permitted per MA guidelines so we have moved the sample projects on display so they are now out of reach. If kids bring their own stuffed animals to class, we ask that they keep them in their cubbies during our class time.
Waiver and Daily Health Check
Our waiver and daily health check is available when you register for one of our classes. Please read over them before you check off the box saying you agree. Please DO NOT send your child to class/camp if they have any illness symptoms.
Rest assured if our classes are cancelled or our studio is closed due to COVID-19 according to CDC recommendation or by a state mandate, all current registrations will be refunded in full.
