Spy Hop COVID-19 In-Person Policies and Procedures
Spy Hop staff and students will adhere to the following COVID-19 policies:
- Students will be asked about current health status such as if they have experienced fevers, coughs or shortness of breath, including COVID-19 vaccination status.
- No person shall be allowed to enter the facility if they have signs of illness.
- Documentation of all people (students & staff) entering the facility.
- Clean face coverings worn by all people entering the facility, and at all times. Spy Hop can provide face coverings, as needed.
- Social distance of 6 feet maintained by all people in the facility, where available.
- Use of hand sanitizer and proper hand washing expected upon entering the facility, before and after restroom use, and before and after the use of equipment.
- All equipment will be sanitized before and after use.
- Spy Hop staff, students and parents/guardians will be notified immediately if a participant or staff member tests positive for COVID-19.
Ownership of work produced by students as part of a Spy Hop program goes to the student producer. Much of the work created at Spy Hop will have many producers. In these cases, the ownership of the work will be attributed to all of the students involved.
Spy Hop Equipment Use & Student Responsibility
All students taking any of the courses offered by Spy Hop Productions accept responsibility and acknowledge accountability for any damage, loss, or theft of any or all equipment used for production purposes. Students agree to take responsible care in the handling, transportation, and storage of all equipment in their care. In the event of minor breakage, loss or theft, the student(s) responsible for restitution will be advised by a Spy Hop Production staff member as to the extent of damages. Students may not repair the equipment themselves (or have it repaired) without prior approval from the department in question. All payments and/or replacements must be settled in full before any additional use of equipment or facilities will be authorized to that individual. Students who have been authorized to have the items repaired or replaced must document that the repair or replacement has been undertaken by an approved vendor before any additional use of equipment or facilities by that student will be permitted. When the damage, loss or theft is severe the student will be responsible for restitution. Use of any equipment or facilities will be suspended until restitution or replacement of damaged goods is provided. Individuals are responsible for loss or damage due to negligence, including items left in vehicles (even if locked or hidden from sight) or other unattended locations.
In cases of loss, theft, or damage the student may be responsible for the FULL VALUE of the equipment.
Parent and Guardians Responsibility
Spy Hop Productions strongly encourages parents and guardians to participate with their children by taking an interest in their Spy Hop activities.
Parent & Guardian’s Rights
Parents and guardians have a right to have any and all of their questions answered and their concerns addressed. If you ever have any questions or concerns you have the right to call Spy Hop Productions and ask to speak with your child’s teacher or the Programs Director.
