Art One Academy Markham 2020 Summer Camp Safety Protocol and Procedures

  • calendarJune 16, 2020
  • Posted by Rita in News

As Art One Academy Markham eases into re-opening of our school for Summer Camp the safety and health of our students and instructors remains our top priority.

We wish each student to have a safe and positive experience at Art One Academy this summer. 


  • Face coverings of students are allowed in the facility based on the personal preference. Parents/guardians must cover their faces when stepping in the facility for pick up or drop off the campers.  All instructors/staff will be wearing face shields (and/or masks) if necessary.
  • Parents supposed to fill out the screening check with their full names for each day drop off and pick up at home and email it back to the studio. No filling out paper forms/signatures in the studio. A screening should include daily temperature checks at home prior to arrival to the studio. The studio staff may also do temperature checks prior to entry to the facility.

A list of symptoms, including atypical signs and symptoms, can be found on the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 website: COVID-19 Reference Document for Symptoms

An email with a camp schedule, screening check form and the safety protocol will be sent to each family prior to the camp week. If data, as the parents/dates drop off/pick up changed, parents must notify the studio.

Participants who are showing ill symptoms or have not done a screening check cannot attend our Art Studio.  

  • Pick up and Drop off limiting contact 

Limit to one parent/guardian to accompany students to the door. Any parent must be wearing a mask when stepping in the foyer of the studio. One family (parent and kids) must enter the studio at a time while the others are waiting outside.

Personal belongings brought to camp should be labeled. If brought to camp, personal items (e.g., backpack, clothing, water bottles, food, etc.) 

  • Students limit and allocation

            The social distancing will be maintained by limiting the number of students

            in a class. Two groups (cohorts) will be created for two separate areas:

           1) Red Room:      up to 6 students

2) Yellow Room: up to 7 students.   

Our seating is arranged to allow 6’ distance between students. Every student will be assigned to the same place inside the room during their camp.

  • Emergency Room 

The blue room will be a designated space for students and staff. 

  • Personal Hygiene and Studio Sanitising 

Each room will be equipped with hand sanitizers, napkins. Staff is responsible to ensure students to practice hand hygiene and wash hands when coming to the room, before snack and lunch and various times during the day.

The washroom and the kitchen usage will be supervised by the staff and cleaned and disinfected frequently. Studio will be heavily cleaned daily. We will sanitize tables, chairs, art supplies, doorknobs, light switches, sinks, and washrooms during the day as frequently as needed. 

  • Meal and snacks

Each student brings his/her own packaged meal and snack, as well as a labelled water bottle. Delivery of Thursday pizza is optional.

  • No smocks or aprons will be used. Students should dress in something they don’t mind getting dirty or bring their own apron.   
  • Campers can bring their own toys, if wanted for the play time.
  • Individual Art Kit/Bin and Art Materials

Art One Academy Markham will supply disposable acrylic and watercolor paint, mix media paper and construction/tissue paper. Campers will use designated equipment and materials for craft projects. To keep art supplies sanitary, all students will be required to buy their own art kits. All bins will be individually labelled. The items in the art bin are those that students will be handling themselves or leave them in the studio for the camp length and take home afterwards.
