COVID-19 Contingency Plan:
In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom for the 2020-21 school year, the following adjustments will be made to Phonics of Art class. You the parent will be given the choice to continue this class in an online format, or to opt out of classes that do not meet in person. Tutor and students will meet at the scheduled class time via live video streaming. The online format will include art instruction and interaction with the students. The students will have assignments, handouts, video tutorials and supplies proved by the tutor. If you opt out of online classes, you will be reimbursed for any tuition already paid for these classes. Our goal is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin classroom meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation resolves.
