COVID-19 Safety Measures and Procedures

Home  /  COVID-19 Safety Measures and Procedures

Update: September 1, 2023

As we head into our 43rd year of operation, we proudly report an incredible summer of sold-out programming! What a joy to have new and returning students fill our studios and take over the stage.
In 2023-2024, the CTA will continue to operate and provide instruction while allowing masks to be optional. We must do it for our student population and help ensure the CTA stays open.

To protect all students’ health and safety and to support their learning by avoiding closures and offering consistent instruction, we respectfully ask that students stay home from class if they have a fever, cough, sore throat, or other flu-like symptoms. As with every year, we ask that you please keep in mind the CTA is a community school that currently serves students ages 4 years and up, from 6 different school districts.

Although we do believe that mask-wearing, at this time, is a personal choice, we reserve the right to re-implement a mandate if deemed necessary. We continue to monitor local conditions like the schools and will review all new federal, state, and county guidelines. We will remain informed and flexible to any changes and openly communicate any changes to our policies with families.

Moving forward

In addition to paying close attention to any changes and potential challenges in the coming year, we will remain focused on ensuring the safest environment for our students, faculty, and staff by continuing to make adjustments and implement multiple strategies of instruction and operation as needed.
The CTA continues to remain a destination for all children. We have ALWAYS asked what’s best for the kids. Thank you for entrusting the CTA with your children. Rest assured, we have taken extensive measures to keep them safe as we welcome our 4th decade of operation.

Together, we are setting the stage for success!
