COVID-19 Information & Safety Guidelines:

 

We will be following the CDC recommended guidelines during the classes, rehearsals and performance. Please see the attached waiver that will need to be signed and sent back to us before the first day of camp. Please know that we have been in communication with a city official of Boston and we are following the guidelines in accordance with the safety requirements mandated by Hyde Park. We have also sought guidance from a public health professional from Tufts, who has looked over our plan. They also shared this resource with us that was very helpful and informative:

It is important to note that there is no such thing as “no risk”. We know that the risk can increase when singing and projecting our voices. Therefore, we have prepared and planned with guidelines that will keep us safe and protected. 

 

Lots of important information to take in here, but we feel confident that this will be a fun and creative summer experience! Of course if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. We will be happy to help! 

 

Thank you and can’t wait to see you! 

 

Best,
