The Victoria Day weekend is upon us. While we are open for music lessons the Friday and Saturday, we are closed for both online music lessons and in person music classes on the holiday Monday.
With the governments cancelling so many things, it may get confusing or even seem pointless, to stick to these kinds of routines, but we here at the River Heights School of Music think retaining as much of our normal routines will be key to making the best of the situation handed to us by the government.
Have a great weekend, even if it is just in your backyard!
As the restriction are lifting here in the province of Manitoba, businesses here in Winnipeg, such as the River Heights School of Music, can re-open to the public on a limited basis. Prior to the closing we were applying the physical distancing required at the time. To re-open our music school we have ramped up those measures.
We have propped open the door so you have no handles to touch
Have hand sanitizer at your first stop.
We have limited the seating in the waiting area, orange tape marking where to stand when talking to reception and where to sit or stand during your lesson.
We have removed the water cups and the water cooler.
Closed off studio 5.
Have bleach cleaner and hand sanitizer in all the studios. Removed boot trays to create wider areas
Our teachers are self screening.
Right now there 1-3 teachers plus front desk in the office
About ¼ of the students are having in studio lessons with the rest opting to continue with contactless remote video lessons.
Some are looking at coming in later and/or intermittently
So whether you are an existing student or are looking to start music lessons with us you can rest assured the health and safety of our teachers, staff, families and student is our focus.
Fun fact: when the world went a bit nuts and people horded all the disinfectant wipes, we at the River Heights School of Music were fine, because we’ve always have some on hand. We have been wiping down music stands, desk and pianos for 9 years.
