-BUGS’ Covid Protocols for Fall 2021 & Entrance/Exit Procedures…
–First, these Protocols will continue to be fluid and change frequently as needed. We will always be hoping to loosen these protocols, but always put kids safety first… when making decisions. Thank you for your understanding & cooperation.
–-Drop Off & Pick up... Students should Enter through the Front door and Exit through the Side door (Soccer players on the North side of the building near the Woolery Mill) to prevent congestion in the foyer. If you do not stay to watch, please be waiting outside the side door when your child’s training ends. Please be prompt, as the coaches have to get in and start the next hour. Please Drop them off for entrance at the front door 1-5min before their practice begins. Please stay with them until our front door staff has let them in. The Front Doors will be locked during classes. Doors will be OPEN for Entrance no sooner than 10min prior to training & no longer than 5-10min after the start of practices.
—Upon entering, Soccer Players should go straight out onto the field and put their backpacks and water down on the dots provided around the field for distancing. Parents should head upstairs for viewing and be mindful of social distancing.
—Spectator Masking– We will require that all spectators mask, vaccinated or not, in accordance with the local mask mandate.
–We will allow a Max of 1 spectator per student to enter the gym.
—Staff Masking- The majority of our BUGS Staff is fully vaccinated! However, we will be requiring masks in accordance with local mandates.
—Student Masking– For the moment, we will be tightening up our masking for the Kiddos again, in accordance with the local mandate and due to the higher covid numbers and the more easily transmitted Delta variant. Students should come in with a mask, keep it on during stretch/warm up, & when in lines or groups talking, etc… Students may pull it down or take it off once they start practice & get moving into their spaced out activities and running, etc.. Their coach will guide them through when this is appropriate.. Thank you for understanding that it is our responsibility to keep everyone safe.
–Each player NEEDS to bring their own WATER BOTTLE, as our drinking fountains will remain closed for the moment. (We will likely begin selling drinks & snacks at the front desk again, week 2 or 3).
–We ask that if your child is old enough and you feel comfortable sending them in on their own and picking them up at the side exit door, that you do so some of the time… to help us limit the number of people in the gym. You are certainly welcome to start watching again, but perhaps… not every week.
–We will provide hand sanitizer throughout the building & continue to clean bathrooms frequently.
–Please have your kids go to the restroom at home right before coming & change clothes at home or in their car, if possible… In order to keep our restrooms from being too overcrowded.
–We advise students not to bring in extra or unnecessary personal items.
–These protocols will continue to be fluid. We look forward to a time when we don’t need to mask!
Thank you in advance for your support & cooperation! We Appreciate You!
