OPERATING WITHIN A STATE OF EMERGENCY
Prefer to have your lesson online during the crisis?


Book an Online Make Up
During this time when California has declared a state of emergency and has determined the coronavirus outbreak "past the point of containment," and until NMS determines the crisis is over, we at NMS will have to take stricter measures regarding teacher and student illness.


NOTE:  some of the below restrictions go beyond minimum conventional restrictions, and are being put into place in order to provide psychological and emotional comfort to the listening party.


ILLNESS POLICY
If a teacher has any fever or cold-like symptoms including sore throat or deep-chested coughingthey should by NO means enter the premises of NMS.  Those recovering from having any fever or cold-like symptoms must stay off the premises for at least 14 days after the symptoms have completely disappeared.  


If students have any symptoms, they should notify NMS and their teacher as soon as possible and arrange for a make up lesson.  Extra leniency shall be granted for make up lessons, as long as the teacher has not already arrived at the lesson.  Make ups will generally be done online.  If any student shows up with any of the above symptoms, they should be sent home immediately.

Teachers who have fever or cold-like symptoms, including sore throat or deep-chested coughing should contact NMS immediately, and should notify and reschedule their students or ask NMS to appoint a sub. 


CLEANLINESS POLICY
Teachers will disinfect door handles and piano keyboard before and after entering the room.


The bathroom sink, front desk and chair armrests should be wiped down after usage.  


PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS
Anyone who has traveled abroad shall contact info@neighborhoodmusic.net to arrange for online lessons or package alterations to fulfill the 14 days required self-quarantine period for 14 days after travel.


All parties should wear a protective face mask at all times on the premises.  

Thank you for being considerate toward the safety of our community during this time of high alert.

Re-Opening with Caution


While all of our lessons will be accessible online as before, Neighborhood Music will have a soft launch for just a small number of students and teachers who would prefer live in-person lessons. 

Facility adaptations
:


1)  plexiglass panels at front desk and in rooms to separate teacher from student
2)  mirrors on walls to still communicate face to face
3)  donning face masks mandatory on premises
4)  front door one way IN, back door one way OUT
5)  maximum capacity in small rooms:  2
6)  maximum capacity in large room 5 singles or 3 family units
7)  meticulous cleaning of keyboard by teachers between lessons
8)  additional twice or more daily cleaning of bathrooms, public handles, knobs.

Policy Changes:

1)  each customer will be asked to text their teacher when they arrive for a live lesson and check off a "non-sickness" waiver before entering, using our Neighborhood Music APP.
2)  any missed lesson because of schedule conflict or sickness can be made up online.  Forgetting to show up at a lesson will still not be refundable or made up.
