COVID-19 Safety Policies

In response to COVID-19, Center for the Arts Evergreen has implemented new safety policies for our adult and youth classes this summer to create a safe experience for all. We are carefully monitoring the recommended guidelines from the state of Colorado and Jefferson County, and we have created these policies to align. These policies may be subject to change as new guidelines are released throughout the summer.

Our new class policies include the following:

  • All in-person classes (adult and youth) will operate with 10 or fewer students and one instructor.
  • All instructors and CAE public-facing staff or volunteers will be wearing masks during class hours.
  • Adult and youth students will be required to wear masks while in class. Exceptions will include while eating and drinking, and reasonable provisions are in place to allow time for students to take a break from mask-wearing when necessary. Details on our mask-wearing practices for students will be provided prior to the start of class.
  • Parents/guardians will be required to wear masks during class pick-up and drop-off. Only one parent/guardian should accompany a minor student at class pick-up/drop-off if necessary.
  • Upon class registration, you will receive a document with pick-up/drop-off procedures including locations and times.
  • Youth students will be given a “kit” that includes their own art supplies, in lieu of having a community container for things like pencils, scissors, paint brushes, etc.
  • All youth classes will be taught outside under our 20’x20’ tent. Each student will have his/her own table, and tables will be spaced so that students are six feet apart. In case of extreme inclement weather, outdoor classes will be moved indoors to the CAE classroom, gallery, and conference/lobby area. Tables will be spaced so that students are six feet apart.
  • In-person adult classes that take place in the CAE gallery will require easel placement at least six feet apart.
  • For youth students, a letter must be signed by a parent/guardian indicating that no one in the household has had a fever or signs of COVID-19 for at least two weeks prior to their class session. We will send this out the day before class starts.
  • Morning procedures for class starts will include temperature readings for staff, instructors, and students. We will be keeping a daily log of temperatures. If a student (adult or youth), staff member, or instructor has a temperature of 100.6 or higher, they cannot be admitted to class for that day.
