COVID-19

Will you offer in-person classes?

We believe that the most effective way to learn is in person. Although some health risks cannot be fully eliminated, we believe that our small class sizes, the ability to enforce precautionary measures, and the fact that kids work on their own equipment help us mitigate the risks. For these reasons, we have decided to offer our instruction in person for Fall 2020. If you have any specific concerns in this regard, please get in touch with us.

What steps are you taking to limit my child's potential exposure?

  • Class sizes will be limited to 7 kids and all participants will be required to wear face coverings unless able to social distance at all times during class.
  • We will be wiping down tables and chairs between classes and will enforce hand washing/sanitizing immediately before and immediately after class.
  • For the safety of all, we respectfully request that any child who is feeling unwell be kept home. A child who shows up to class with visible symptoms of illness will be asked to leave.

What happens if my child misses a class because of illness?

Video recordings will be made of all class lectures and children who miss a class due to illness (or for any other exceptional reason) will be asked to watch the recording and ask any questions prior to the next class. The instructor is also available for additional help as needed.

What happens if circumstances change during the semester such that in-person instruction becomes riskier?

As those of you who were with us in the spring of 2020 know, we do have the technical capability to teach remotely. While this is not our preferred method, we will switch to it if circumstances warrant.
