The studio's classes, camps, and events for ages 5 and older will be mask-optional beginning Monday, March 7. Classes with children under age 5 will require masking for all who enter the studio. Our safety policy is taking the lead of HVRSD, especially understanding their work to research and consider the best and safest options for our community.
It is important to us that all students feel safe and comfortable with their choice, and we greatly respect each family’s decision. We will do everything to support and make each child feel welcome and respected with their choice, and the teachers, even if choosing to go unmasked much of the time, will keep a mask on hand for wearing when nearby a child who is masked as well.
Please note we will encourage hand-washing, continue to disinfect the studio, keep the students seated distant at the tables, and continue to run our medical-grade air filters.
The rest of our COVID safety policy still remains. Please do not enter the studio if you: 1) are experiencing COVID symptoms 2) are quarantining due to COVID exposure 3) have received a positive COVID test within the past 5 days or are still quarantining with a positive result 4) are awaiting the results of a COVID test. We also request that if you are coming out of a quarantine after testing positive for COVID, that you continue to wear a mask in the studio until 10 days after your quarantine ends.
Please be aware, of course, that recommendations and mandates could change, and therefore our masking policy is subject to change. In the event that it does, we will notify you as soon as possible.
