☆UPDATE RE: FACE MASKS☆
As many of you are aware by now, Governor Waltz just issued a mandate regarding wearing face masks while at indoor public businesses/facilities. The policy at our school will remain the same as it had been previously:
•Staff are already required to wear face masks. This includes all teaching and cleaning staff.
•Starting Saturday students are required to wear face masks, but can remove them with "distance" if they need to "catch their breath" as long as the mandate is in place. NO MASKS required for outdoor classes.
• Parents and visitors to the school are also required to wear face masks as well whenever in the building.
•We will continue to offer Zoom classes daily.
•Social distancing practices will continue to be adhered to as well as hand sanitizing and cleaning/disinfecting the school and equipment between classes.
We care very deeply about our students, families and staff. We want to do our part to keep everyone in our community safe and healthy and also comply with city, state and federal mandates.
We appreciate your continued cooperation and compliance with these rules and we thank you for your attention and patience in this matter.
As always let me know if you have questions or concerns.
