I sat down saying that I was skeptical about choir this year because I had yet to hear about a safe way to sing in the COVID world. Within minutes, I felt quite the opposite. Outstanding planning, clearly based in your work with other choirs and public health officials, clear instructions for us. . . SLCC has reinforced what we instinctively knew — thoughtful commitment to our kids and to the notion that group singing is so necessary that we ought to be smart and figure it out."
Every in person rehearsal will be live streamed on Zoom for students to view at home.
For the first 6 weeks of rehearsals all in-person classes are limited to 15 singers. If a section has more than 15 singers enrolled it will be divided into 2 groups alternating in person and remote participation.
Zoom rehearsal attendance will be tracked – we expect any singers opting for remote participation to attend weekly as if they were in person.
Medify air purifiers have been purchased for every rehearsal space and will circulate air every 30 minutes. Staff are trained on cleaning procedures and will be thoroughly cleaning spaces in between rehearsals.
All singers and staff will wear face masks at all times when on the property. Social distancing will be enforced with assigned seats spread 6 or more feet apart.
Temperatures will be taken for all singers and staff upon arrival. If anyone is exhibiting any symptoms they will not be admitted to rehearsal. Remote attendance via Zoom is encouraged for any singers with possible COVID symptoms or exposure.
