ONGOING MEASURES

As of April 9, 2022, masks will be optional at the studio. We support everyone’s comfort levels to do what feels best for them. Please know your teacher will always have a mask ready, should you wish for them to wear one.
The lobby will remain closed due to the size of the space. We ask the lobby to be used for drop-off and pick-up only.
• Teachers and students are asked to stay home if they are feeling unwell. We provide the option of doing an online lesson to any student that has stayed home due to illness. Please call or email the studio with a minimum of 60-minutes notice to arrange an online lesson.
Please do not enter the studio if you have been asked to isolate by public health or a confirmed case of Covid-19 until your isolation or self-monitoring period has ended.
• Please do not enter the studio if you have travelled outside of the country within the last 14 days.
• Hand sanitizing or handwashing is required prior to entering lesson rooms.
• Teachers will be wiping down the touch surfaces of their teaching studios between students.
• The studio will receive a deep clean once a week by a professional cleaning company.
• Each teaching studio will be equipped with a “squeaky clean bin” containing hand sanitizer, Lysol wipes, medical masks, and a disinfectant spray for pens/pencils.
• Teaching studios will have plexiglass barriers in place for added protection, and teachers will maintain distance where possible.

We appreciate your continued support to keep Forte School of Music a healthy place for music making.
