With careful thought and planning we are structuring our classes and programs following CDC considerations to protect students, families, and our community. We are:

  • Requiring that staff and students wear a mask that covers their face and nose at all times indoors.  Snack breaks will happen outdoors in open air with physical distancing.
  • Daily health and temperature checks upon arrival.

We ask that you help us protect the health of participants and staff. Anyone who is sick or was sick with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days— including staff, students, and families— should not come to class. Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell.
