Piano students will have a separate keyboard from their teacher.
- Hand sanitizer is available in the hallway, as well as each room to use when touching shared surfaces and instruments.
- Equipment is wiped down with alcohol after each use.
- We have placed MERV13 filters in our heating and cooling units.
- HEPA filters and UVC lamps are used in individual rooms for further sanitization of the air.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
COVID-19 Check-in Guidelines
- All of our teachers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Wearing a mask is still required to take in-person lessons, regardless of vaccination status.
- If you feel ill or have a temperature, please reschedule your lesson.
- Students and parents may wait outside or in the parking lot of the school. The lobby will be closed.
- If you wish to accompany your child during lessons, make arrangements with your teacher beforehand to do so. Otherwise, students are to be dropped off to their lesson and picked up afterwards. Look for a text from your teacher to know when they are ready to see you. Please do not wait in the hallway or wander inside the school.
- If you are dropping your child off, please wait outside for the duration of your child’s lesson. Our teachers are scheduled back to back and will not be able to tend to children if parents are late to pick them up.
- Rhinebeck School of Music will not be responsible for a student’s safety once they exit the school. Parents must be ready to pick them up once their lesson has ended.
- Doors will be propped open at the entrances, so students can enter without touching the door knobs.
- Hand sanitizer is available. Please use it before touching any shared equipment and when using the bathroom.
- Teachers are required to wipe down shared equipment after each student.
- Thank you for your patience and understanding during these trying times. We are committed to keeping our teachers and students as safe as possible.
