We are excited to resume in person lessons at our two locations in St. Thomas and St. Croix, effective Tuesday, May 12th! Please read this memo in its entirety, so that you are aware of all requirements and changes in our operation.
As many of you have seen or heard, Governor Albert Bryan, Jr. has opened many businesses in the U.S. Virgin Islands on May 4th, according to his “Safer At Home” executive order. Our reopening requires us to adhere to CDC safety guidelines, so there are some actions that YOU MUST DO.
Here's a brief overview of the “SAFER AT HOME” SAFETY GUIDELINES:
1. In an effort to ensure that parents and students are updated with any changes, we are requesting that all parents/students SIGN IN with our Receptionist at our main office/front desk. We ask that every student upon arrival wash their hands.
2. Students and parents are also required to wear a face mask upon arrival. G-Clef teachers and staff will be wearing face masks when interacting with students. We have complimentary face masks available FREE to all current students and parents who may have forgotten to bring their masks. The mask can be discarded after use.
3. We encourage the frequent use of hand sanitizers by students, teachers, and staff. Hand sanitizers are available in each instruction room, as well as in common areas.
4. All instruments and equipment will be sanitized. Additionally, we have hired a professional cleaning service to deep clean each school weekly.
5. Social distancing of 6 feet apart will be practiced. G-Clef has spacious music rooms, so it will be easy to maintain a safe distance between teachers, students and staff.
6. We ask that for now, you do not wait in the waiting areas, but that you wait in your vehicle while you or your child’s lesson is being held. If you arrive early, please either call the office at (340) 344-6449 or text our mobile phone at (340) 690-6449 to let us know that you are here, and we will let you know when your teacher is ready for you. Then, we’ll buzz you in and you’ll sign in at our main office/front desk.
ONLINE LESSONS WILL CONTINUE. For those who would prefer to stay at home, you will continue to have the option to have your lessons ONLINE, for as long as you'd like. It is your choice as to when you would like to resume in person lessons with us. Online lessons will always be an option for you.
