The health and safety of our students is of the utmost importance. To maintain a safe learning environment, we are reducing our in-person class sizes, increasing our cleaning frequency, screening our students for illness before each class and practicing physical distancing during class. We will also be asking our students to aid us in creating a safe and comfortable learning environment.
