Beaumont Community Music COVID-19 Studio Policy
Note: Our COVID policy is subject to change based on recommendations by Alberta Health Services. We will be monitoring the Alberta government website and Alberta Health Services to stay up to date on COVID-19. Please check this page for our updated policies.
As the COVID-19 virus continues to impact us all, keeping you, your kids, and our staff safe and healthy is our most important priority. We will not put economics ahead of ensuring everyone's safety.
We have decided to run classes online for the month of September. We will go back in person at the beginning of October. Any student who wishes to remain online can choose to do so. The following rules will take place in October.
We will be adhering to the guidelines set by the Beaumont Community Centre and Alberta Health Services.
Students will all be required to use the provided hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the lesson room. Social distancing rules inside the lesson studios must be followed. The rooms will be taped to show designated areas for students and teachers. Please respect the boundaries set.
Please allow a couple of minutes at the end of the lesson for the instructor to wipe down all surfaces in the lesson room. Do not enter the lesson room until your instructor permits the student to enter.
All Beaumont Community Music students and staff will be required to wear masks. Masks will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. If the student cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, you must let Beaumont Community Music know prior to the start of lessons.
Voice lessons will not be offered in-person for the 2020-2021 lesson year. All voice lessons will be provided online at the discretion of the instructor.
Group lessons of students who are not from the same household will not be offered for the 2020-2021 lesson year.
Any students who are uncomfortable with the traditional in-person lesson format or are immunocompromised can request their lessons to be moved onto an online platform.
Instructors will cancel their lessons if they are showing any symptoms of COVID-19. The lessons will move online until the instructor has had a negative COVID-19 test and/or they have had no symptoms for 10 days.
Please DO NOT come to your lesson if you show ANY symptoms of COVID-19. If you are unsure, please click the link to access the AHS COVID-19 self-assessment tool or phone 811.
If your child develops any symptoms, stay home! Their lesson will be moved online at a time decided between the instructor and the student. The lesson is to be completed within 2 weeks of the missed lesson. After the 2 weeks, the standard missed lesson policy will apply.
Sending your child to lessons assumes that they are not showing any symptoms of COVID-19, and they have not been in contact with anyone with a presumed or confirmed case of COVID-19. If your teacher suspects you have any symptoms of COVID-19, the student will not be allowed to enter the community centre.
Any students who return from a trip outside of Canada will not be allowed to come to in-person lessons until 14 days have passed.
Thank you to everyone who will be joining us and for understanding these precautions.
