Behavior Code

The Art Factory (TAF) Community is based on mutual respect. Children are treated with respect and kindness and they are expected to reciprocate this to all the other children and adults in the program.

I understand and agree that children and/or parents who are not following the agreements will be asked to leave the program. TAF reserves the right to refuse service.  Refunds are not given upon dismissal of the program.

COVID 19 Policies

In-person classes and COVID-19

We wear masks outdoors. We maintain safe social distancing protocols. The only mask-free exception is when a student is eating or drinking at a distance or they are on a designated mask break.

The Art Factory follows the ever-changing California state COVID-19 guidelines. Please notify us if your student tests positive for COVID-19. If your student has been exposed to COVID-19 please stay home and inform Yvette.

 

Outdoor classes are subject to change on a day-by-day basis; rain or unhealthy air quality will cause us to meet on Zoom.
