  • Anyone with Covid-19 symptoms will be sent home (as well as any members of their household who may be accompanying them to the lesson) and will forfeit their lesson. 

  • For this reason, we encourage families to pre-screen at home prior to coming to lessons. We will provide up-to-date details in September that are in line with public health advisories.

  • All persons in the building are required to wear a mask/face shield, including parents, students, and teachers.  Children under the age of 2 are not required.  If you have a health condition that prevents you/ your child from wearing a mask, please let us know.
