COVID-19 Safety Steps for Enrolled Students
With the CVKey app, you can:
• Anonymously check symptoms and receive clear guidance.
• Feel confident that the places you need to go follow public health guidelines.
• Generate a CVPass to get in quickly without sharing personal health data.
If you or your student are exhibiting any kind of illness symptoms, please stay home. We thank you for helping us keep everyone safe!
Step One: Self-Screening Symptoms with the CVKey App
All students and caregivers entering the building (both the main site and Studio 840) must check in through the CVKey App to ensure they have no COVID-19 symptoms. Please see instructions below for how to download, install, set up your profile, and check in each time you arrive. You should complete the self-screening prior to entering the building and then check in with your results at the CVKey kiosk in the lobby upon arrival. The Lawrence Arts Center requires a BLUE status to enter our building or associated areas.
If you do not have a cell phone, please speak to our front desk for directions on using alternative CVKey QR code access.

The CVKey app was built with privacy in mind and is not a tracking app. The self-assessment and health-related information is strictly confined to your mobile device. No personal health data is shared or stored outside the mobile device. The only information the QR code provides when scanned is a simple yes or no indication of whether your health assessment meets the criteria to enter the building that day. The app cannot be used for other functions, such as location tracking or contact tracing.
Step Two: Check Your Temperature
In addition to completing your self-screening using the CVKey, students and caregivers must also take their temperature each visit to the Arts Center before participating in an activity. You can either take your temperature at home or you can utilize our new self-automated thermal scanners. These are now available in both the main lobby and Studio 840. Per CDC guidelines, temperatures of those on-site should not exceed 100 degrees. If you arrive and find your temperature exceeds 100 degrees, please do not participate in your activity and see guidelines for re-entry protocol.
Step Three: Masks & Hands
All visitors must wear a mask that covers both their mouth and nose at all times when moving through Arts Center buildings or associated areas.
We ask everyone to sanitize their hands when entering and exiting classrooms. We also ask that hands are sanitized again if a person leaves their classroom to use the restroom. Hand sanitizing stations are available on every level of the Arts Center.
Drop-Off and Pick-Up Policies & Entry/Exit Circulation
Drop-off: Caregivers of young students should follow instructions given in welcome emails on the first day of class.
Pick-up: Caregivers of students Pre-K through 5th grade must come into the Arts Center to pick up their student. Students 6th grade and up are permitted to leave the building on their own (if this is something you feel is appropriate for them). Caregivers must be prepared to pick up their students immediately after class has ended.
All persons in the main building must enter through the main facility doors. Exiting occurs through the south stairwell from the lower level and out through the south doors.
PLEASE DO NOT WAIT IN THE BUILDING FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING CLASS. ONCE STUDENTS ARE DROPPED OFF WE ASK CAREGIVERS TO EXIT THE BUILDING TO LIMIT CAPACITY.
Communication Plan: Exposures & Confirmed Cases
Anyone participating in an in-person class or event who experiences a confirmed COVID-19 exposure or who has a positive COVID-19 test is required to contact the associated program director as soon as possible. Program directors will take the appropriate next steps to ensure both safety and privacy for all involved.

The same responsibilities and requirements that apply to students and building visitors also apply to all instructors.

Changes to classes will be announced through email and by phone as soon as they are made.
Return Protocol in Cases of Exposure or COVID-19 Diagnosis
If you or your student are exhibiting any kind of illness symptoms, please stay home.
