In accordance with the City of Petaluma, please review our new precautions put in place to assure your family’s safety.  Additional information and questions: Email us at info@petalumaartscenter.org

Safety Protocols
  • Enrollment is limited to 12 students per camp. All camps will meet at the Petaluma Arts Center classroom and instruction will be divided between time spent indoors and outdoors.
  • The same group of students will participate in each camp. No drop-ins are allowed
  • All staff and students must follow comprehensive daily health and safety protocols created in partnership with county healthcare professionals.

Hygiene Measures

  • Hand-washing stations and disinfectant will be available in the classroom. Dis-infections of “touch points” in the classrooms will occur daily at the start and end of each camp.
  • Teachers will handle student art materials only when absolutely necessary (and then only with gloves).
  • No more than one student can visit the restroom at a time.

Screening

  • All students will need to complete a daily health questionnaire.

Distancing

  • Physical distancing will be necessary at all times.
  • Food sharing will not be allowed.
  • If students participate in morning and afternoon camps, lunch will occur outside at a designated space.

Masks

  • All staff and students are advised to wear masks when they are in common spaces and classrooms, whether physical-distancing or not. While it is anticipated this will be difficult to enforce with the younger children, it will be expected and required of older students. 

*All campers must bring completed PAC Emergency Form and Photography Consent form. Please bring these forms to the first day of camp. Forms must be filled out by a parent or adult guardian.
