Strict Covid Precautions for this in-person event:
Schools and other exhibitors will be spread out between the cafeteria and gym, two very large spaces to allow for adequate social distancing.

In order to carefully control the number of people in the building, attendees must have FREE timed-entry tickets to enter the school building for two hours: a one-hour workshop followed by an hour to meet the Exhibitors. They will have color-coded wristbands and will be shooed out after their session.  If space permits, we may let attendees stay longer but there are no guarantees. FREE TICKETS:

All adults, ages 18 and up, must be vaccinated in order to enter the building. School safety agents will be stationed at the entrance to check proof of vaccination status, take temperatures and accept covid-health surveys.

While in the building, everyone must wear masks. We ask for everyone’s cooperation for your safety and ours.
