2020 Health Policy for Twinkle Together
We ask for your help in keeping all the members of our musical community healthy by following these protocols. Our classes may have immune-compromised individuals (including pregnant women) who may be more susceptible to viral respiratory infections, including influenza and COVID-19, so your vigilance and adherence to this health policy is extremely important. Our teachers reserve the right to send a family home from class if they feel these sickness protocols are not being followed.
Classroom Cleaning Protocols
- All instruments that were distributed will be disinfected between classes and the end of the day.
- Teachers will be passing out instruments rather than dumping out onto the floor
- Classroom surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized before and after classes.
- Our teachers will make sure to wash their hands before and after class and make use of hand sanitizer.
- Some instruments and props may be taken out of circulation.
- Parents are always welcome to come to class and pick out their own instruments and wipe them down or bring in their own instruments.
- Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available for use during class – please note we do not use alcohol in our hand sanitizer for the safety of children, if parent prefers alcohol, we advise to bring your own.
Family Health Protocols
- We ask that all adults and children wash their hands before and after class for at least 20 seconds. (Sing the “Hello Song” to all the members of your family: that'll be at least 20 seconds!) Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for this.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow. (Practice this with our chant, "I'm freezing, I'm freezing . . . sneezing . . . Achoo! Achoo!”) Afterwards, wash your hands or use the provided hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes.
- Fist-bump or wave instead of shaking hands or hugging.
- If you or your child is sick, please stay home until you are fully recovered. If you or your child has had a fever, you must be fever-free for at least 24 hours (without assistance of fever-reducing medication) before returning to class.
- If you or your child becomes ill with something contagious after you were in class, please contact us immediately.
