Covid Safety Guidelines

Policies and Guidelines for Programs

The health and safety of the youth we serve and their families, the teaching artists we work with,  and BAL employees is our number one priority.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at

Here are the guidelines we are adhering to so we can do our maximum to keep everyone safe and healthy:

Drop-off and Pick-up

Kids will be dropped off and picked up at the BAL entrance. Parents/caregivers will not enter the BAL space . 

We will only dismiss your child to a parent/guardian/or authorized pick-up that has been noted on your registration form.

Physical Distancing and Face Coverings 

At BAL, masks are optional except….

-If a child/teaching artist/staff member has tested positive for covid, they may return on day 5 as long as they are fever and symptom free (without the use of fever-reducing medication). They must wear a well fitting mask through day 10 from the positive test result or onset of symptoms.


To ensure a safe and hygienic learning environment BAL will do the following:

    • BAL will provide an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing 60% or more alcohol for areas where hand washing is not feasible.
    • Kids will be instructed to sanitize their hands after using the restroom.
    • Kids will come with their own water bottle and snack/lunch each day. Food will not be shared. BAL will not provide food to students.


We ask all parents/guardians  to immediately notify us if your child has any Covid symptoms or has had close contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid.

If a contractor/employee tests positive for Covid-19, BAL will immediately notify families of the children who had close contact with the individual, while maintaining confidentiality required by state and federal law and regulations.
