In accordance with Dancing Classroom Philly's duty to provide and maintain a safe space for students that is free of known hazards, we are adopting this policy to safeguard the health of our volunteers, staff, students, partner schools and organizations, and our community at large from infectious diseases, such as COVID-19, that may be reduced by vaccinations. This policy will comply with all applicable laws and is based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health authorities, as applicable.
All volunteers are required to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated (COVID-19 vaccinations are free, whether an individual has health insurance or not), unless a reasonable accommodation is approved. Volunteers not in compliance with this policy will not be utilized for in-person opportunities at schools or community events. ALSO, volunteers must follow all district and/or school/partner organization related Covid-19 protocols when applicable including, but not limited to: masking policy, testing requirements, pre-entry screening forms, disclosure of Covid-19 status, quarantine requirements, etc…
Volunteers in need of an exemption from this policy due to a medical reason, or because of a sincerely held religious belief must submit a written request and state the reason for their accommodation to Caitlyn@musicopia.net. Accommodations may be granted where they do not cause a direct threat to the health and safety of Dancing Classrooms Philly’s constituents or partners.
