Hello everyone!  Welcome to our Newsletter for August 2020.

Here’s an update on our current status: We are thrilled and excited to announce that our school is ready for September with classes beginning Tuesday, September 8th! All classrooms are upgraded with cameras, mixers, microphones and computers to support both in-person or online classes.

While waiting for the Government to give us a green light to re-open, we were busy re-organizing the classrooms and adopting the school to include:

👉Hand-sanitizing and temperature check in the entry way.
👉Group rooms: keyboards are set in a two metre square to enable each student to be socially distanced from each other.
👉Computers, mixers, cameras and microphones are in each classroom to support in-person and online classes.
👉Group classes will also be recorded to help with home practice.

So, what does it mean for you?  You can choose to attend classes ONLINE or IN-PERSON. Both options will remain in place for a foreseeable future.

Are you wondering what’s the best way for you to participate in our classes?

We are SO proud of you! Congratulations on successfully passing your grade!
