First Coast Cultural Center follows the St. Johns County calendar year and safety guidelines.

Beginning with summer programs on June 28 and going into the 2021-2022 school year, the First Coast Cultural Center will transition to the following health and safety procedures:

  • Face masks will be recommended, but optional in the studio and/or classroom.
  • Temperature checks will no longer be a daily routine when students, staff or visitors arrive.
  • Enhanced sanitation practices will continue in our facilities to ensure clean, healthy studios, excluding ceramic classes due to the nature of this class/camp. Hand sanitizer and frequent wash of hands breaks will be provided.
  • Protocols will continue to be adjusted as we receive guidance from the CDC, FHSAA and other state and local agencies.
