Changes to Health&safety policies

Updated: Apr 16

As of March 18th, 2022 masks are optional at both Cibolo & NB locations.

Masks and distancing are welcome but will be your choice!

I will continue my flexible makeups so we can be extra careful with illness & attendance. Just as before the pandemic, I will continue to ask families to stay home if sick (symptomatic, diagnosis, testing positive with anything infectious). Many of us have chronic conditions (I have this issue too). If you are certain that your symptoms are allergies, asthma, lingering irritation you can return to class. However since it‘s hard to absolutely rule out viruses, I will also ask that if you or your child do have a chronic cough or runny nose that you distance and/or use masks temporarily - I will follow this advice for myself as well.

Also we will still need to follow any location’s guidelines- even if they are different from my studio’s policies.

With the case, hospital, immunity, and other indicators

looking so much better, my policies will be changing slowly back to normal.

what will change and when…

Feb 2022

*inside classes

*Adult & older children masks can be taken off while on ”safe zones” the carpet or mat areas. *I will evaluate class size and may add one more family to class size. *I have already started to hand some instruments & objects out

*we will continue to follow facility rules- I will have to check with the NB church for any change of their rules

March 2022 (aiming for spring break if numbers continue on their current trajectory AND each facility will have to sign off on any changes)…

*inside classes & when weather let's us some outside activities

*masks for adults & older children will be optional (parent/caregiver choice) * class size to maximum of 6 parent/child pairs

*I personally will start using a clear shield instead of a mask

*Start to allow children to pick out & share instruments in certain situations.

April & May 2022 things still looking good!!

So I will be increasing the class sizes slowly. Right now they are at 6 but i will be looking at going to 8 for family classes this summer. We will also be spending time inside & outside during most classes!!

Now & Future (Summer 2022)…

*I will continue to monitor the situation and follow professional guidance so watch for updates or changes

*Please be vigilant with symptoms. To help with this there will be flexibility with account$ balances & makeups.

*Also I will continue to have disposable masks on hand to use just like tissues & soap as needed.

*I will continue to use my special air filer (NB church also has a special filtration system).

*Masks could temporarily come back at anytime with another spike/ variant.

*Cleaning instruments and objects according to my long standing policies

*I will have separated instruments if desired. And I will keep the boxed instruments for some transitional activities because the children are use to it. But I will add instrument sharing, gathering, exploration when health&safety allows.
