Guidelines for the Safe Return of CWSM Students
We wish to ensure a safe learning environment for all our students, staff and stakeholders and we thank you for your cooperation with these guidelines.
Specifics for instruments
In order to maintain social distancing of 2 meters between teachers and student, we will provide teachers with a small keyboard for demonstrations. Masks should be worn if over 13, however if it’s too uncomfortable as long as you maintain social distancing and wash your hands and wipe touched surfaces after every lesson you should be fine.
Students should wear masks but some may have good reasons not to so please be vigilant in keeping social distancing. Parents ideally should have the instrument tuned and students have their own pencil. Rooms will have measured zones for teacher and student.
Singing and Wind
Singing students are asked to wear visors ideally throughout the lesson. We have also placed screens for students to stand behind as a further precaution. Larger rooms in CWSM have been prioritised for singing and wind teachers.
Students will be asked to bring their own sticks and brushes (if they have brushes), headphones and pencil.
Missed lesson plans if staff (or their families) have symptoms of the virus and have to self-isolate, in the past many of us would come in even if sick and not want to let down our students or worry about cancelling lessons, but this time that positive attitude has to change to being considerate to all by teaching online, if they feel up to it.
If a student is self-isolating and we are given 24 hour notice we should do our best to conduct an online lesson at the same designated time if possible
