Safety Protocols for In-Person Lessons

The health and safety of our CMC community is of utmost importance to us. Here’s what to expect for in-person lessons:

  • masks are no longer mandated inside our CMC building, but are still encouraged where social distancing is difficult to maintain.  
  • self-assessment symptom screening is required prior to your lesson – please do not come to an in-person lesson if you’re displaying any of the following symptoms:  fever, cough, sore throat, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, pink eye or lice (there is the option to switching to online if you’re feeling well enough)
  • hand sanitizing is required prior to your lesson
  • air purifiers with a HEPA filter are in each of our studios 
  • please take off your outdoor footwear; slippers are available for your use 
  • for children under 12, please accompany your child inside and supervise them in our waiting area until their teacher retrieves them for their lesson
  • no pets are allowed in our building as some of our students & admin have allergies
  • please pick up your child INSIDE our building promptly at the end of their lesson

If a student is exhibiting symptoms but feels well enough for their lesson, there is the option to move an in-person lesson to online just for that week.

NOTE: We reserve the right to refuse entry to CMC without exception if a student arrives exhibiting any symptoms above, and the lesson will be forfeited.
