In addition to virtual programming, BAL is offering Outdoor Theater Programming at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for Fall 2020. After-school classes are available to students in PK thru 11th grades. These programs are immersive theatrical adventures and will give the children an opportunity to play outdoors, dance and move, and engage in guided dramatic play and improvisation.
Brooklyn Acting Lab has been closely monitoring Covid-19 in New York State. The health and safety of children and their families, teaching artists, and BAL employees is our number one concern and priority. As such, BAL’s Outdoor Programming for Fall 2020 will be following NYS Guidelines for Childcare and Day Camp Programs.
A. Drop-Off and Pick-Up
Each day kids will be dropped off at the 11th Street entrance of Prospect Park. (11th St. and PPW). Pick-up will be at the same location. We will only dismiss your child to an authorized pick-up that has been noted on your registration form.
During pick-up and drop-off we ask that you:
B. Check-in Procedures
At drop-off, BAL will be taking the temp of each child with a contactless thermometer. Temperatures of all teaching artists and kids will be checked. Anyone with a fever of 100.4 degrees or above will not be able to join the daily activities.
Screening questions will be asked each day and answers will be recorded daily. To speed up check-in we request that you respond electronically before drop-off each morning, if possible. We ask all parents to immediately notify us if your child has any Covid symptoms.
C. Cold and Rainy Days
On extremely cold orrainy days, we will move to virtual programming. If there is a 40% or more forecast of rain or snow for the day we will provide families with a Zoom link the evening prior. In the event of unexpected weather during the day, kids will need to be picked up at the 11th Street park entrance or at BAL (1012 8th Avenue). Parents will be notified which location we are at.
