After School Rehearsal Guidelines for Chaperones

General Procedures 

  1. PLEASE!! DO NOT come to rehearsal if:
    • you do not feel well 
    • you have any COVID symptoms
    • you think you may have been exposed to COVID
  2. Wear a face covering at all times 
  3. Stay 6 feet apart.
  4. A binder with emergency contact numbers and a bag with basic first aid supplies will be kept in the band room on the metal shelves near the doors. 
  5. Cleaner (for end of rehearsal), extra masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer can also be found on the metal shelves. There will also be a basket with cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, etc for use in the cafeteria.

BEFORE REHEARSAL

  1. Please arrive 15 minutes before rehearsals.
  2. Get a health screening as soon as there is someone there who is able to do that (either Doc or other screener).
  3. Help students maintain 6 feet social distancing while waiting for health screening.  
  4. Direct students into the rehearsal rooms, discourage loitering.
  5. If Doc is doing health screenings, one chaperone should be outside helping with the line and one inside reminding students to social distance and wear masks.
  6. Chaperone assigned to the cafeteria should take the basket with cleaner, hand sanitizer, etc. to the cafeteria.  Please make sure to bring it back to the band room after the 6:00 rehearsal.


DURING REHEARSAL

  1. You can sit in a chair outside the band room or cafeteria.  Just try to be within earshot in case Doc or John need assistance.
  2. Make sure students are in the rooms where they are supposed to be and not wandering hallways. 
  3. If you notice any supplies are running low, please email president@athensdriveband.com 

IF A STUDENT BECOMES ILL DURING REHEARSAL 

  1. Separate the student from the rest of the group.  If it is not too cold, might be best to go outside.  
  2. If the student feels well enough, and they drove to rehearsal, they can drive home.  Have them call their parent and tell them that they are coming home.  Make sure they did not bring anyone else with them.  
  3. If the student is severely ill or did not drive, call parent/caregiver to come and pick them up.  If needed, a binder with contact information can be found on the metal shelves in the band room. In most cases students will be able to call their parent using their phone).
  4. Send an email to president@athensdriveband.com with student name, reason for leaving rehearsal (symptoms), date and time.

AFTER REHEARSAL

  1. Before students are dismissed, try to make sure Doc has instructed the students to spray chairs, music stands and/or any shared equipment (such as tuners) with cleaner.  Students can then wipe down their own areas before leaving. You do NOT have to enter the rehearsal room.
  2. Encourage proper social distancing/mask wearing/hand sanitizing, and traffic flow as students exit the room. 
  3. Encourage students to move out of the building and to leave promptly following the rehearsal.
