FAQ
2022 Health & Safety

We recommend reading our must updated COVID-19 Safety & Risk Mitigation plan here: but have provided this FAQ as a quick overview! 

Our goal this summer is to keep our Brave Arts participants and families as safe and well as possible AND to keep this a full summer experience with minimal disruption. We want our kids to get the full week-long Brave Arts experience!!!

Please know we may make safety adjustments/changes that we see fit with the current guidance and ever-evolving positivity rate and state of the pandemic. We ask for your partnership to keep our Brave Arts community healthy!

What measures are in place for COVID-19 safety and risk mitigation and the general wellness of Brave Arts? 

 

1. provided rapid antigen tests with the recommendation/requirement of a PCR test if needed 2. ventilation/air purification in indoor spaces, 3. hand hygiene 4. flexibility of masks based on the current assessment of risk/cases in our community 

 

Each of our registered families must agree to our Community Agreement when signing up for Brave Arts this summer. 

 

What information did you use to make your COVID-19 plans? 

 

We consulted both the Massachusetts and CDC guidelines for summer programs and camps as well as the Town of Weston Board of Health and CSW’s prior policies. While Brave Arts is considered a program rather than a licensed camp due to the nature of our teaching-style and low-risk activities, we are closely following traditional camp protocols for COVID-19 prevention and safety. We reserve the right to make changes and updates to our safety requirements based on current guidance/state of the pandemic that we feel are best for the health and safety of the entire program, staff included. 

 

Are you requiring COVID-19 vaccination? What about testing? 

 

This summer we are requiring full vaccinations (including booster shots for those eligible). Anyone who does not provide proof of their vaccination will be considered unvaccinated. 

 

The state of MA provided summer programs with rapid antigen tests. We will administer a rapid test each Monday to each day session participant and administer a test for anyone displaying/reporting symptoms. For the boarding program, we will test each participant on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday with symptomatic testing provided anytime as needed. 

A further update regarding required testing other than the antigen tests provided (ie: PCR tests) at Brave Arts will be sent prior to July 1st!

 

What if my child is displaying or reporting symptoms? When can they return if they test positive?

 

If your child has ANY symptoms we require proof of a negative rapid antigen test before they may come/return to Brave Arts and highly recommend your child masks indoors until symptoms subside due to false/premature negatives. You may always call 508-314-1792  with any questions and we have plenty of rapid tests to provide to families. We may request a PCR test if there is significant close contact exposure or prevalent symptoms of COVID-19. Project Beacon sites are free to the public regardless of insurance and remain open with a quick turnaround on test results. 

 

If your child displays or reports symptoms while at Brave Arts they will be rapid antigen tested. Please ensure your child can be picked up within one hour if they develop a fever, vomiting and/or test positive. They may not return to Brave Arts until the 1. required 5-day quarantine 2. they have been fever free without the use of a fever reducer for 24+ hours and 3. have a negative antigen test result or physician’s permission. Anyone returning prior to the 10-day period will be required to wear a well-fitting mask when indoors. 

 

What is the refund policy if I keep my child home and/or they are sent home? 

 

Similar to other summer programs, Brave Arts does not issue refunds for sick or absent days. If your child is out for an extended period of time past one day and/or tests positive we will issue a prorated tuition credit for the following summer session. Proper documentation and positive tests confirming the diagnosis will be required for this credit.

 

What is the mask policy? 

 

Masks will not be required outdoors. Our hope is to keep activities outdoor as much as possible! Currently, we are at a "mask-friendly" status meaning if participants/staff choose to wear a mask indoors, they are more than welcome to. If we assess a significant uptick in cases, especially considering the increased risk of spread from singing, we may switch to requiring masks indoors. Brave Arts will remain in communication with families if/how masks become a requirement and we appreciate your support in keeping our community well. 

Who is considered a close contact? How will contact tracing work?

 

Brave Arts will send out a daily health update email when needed if any participants and/or staff test positive and make use of testing and/or mask use as needed. We ask that all families keep in contact with Brave Arts staff regarding household positive cases and/or confirmed close contacts so that we may assist in monitoring for symptoms and testing. Please refer to the CDC website for updated guidance on close contact protocols for vaccinated individuals. Any confirmed cases will be reported to the Weston Board of Health. 

 

Will lunch be provided? Where will everyone eat? 

 

Meals will only be provided for our boarding session participants. Day session participants will bring their own lunch (no nut products) that can be stored in the fridge. We will eat outside unless the weather is inclement in which case we’ll move indoors!
