COVID-19 Plans

COVID-19 Precautions

We are happy to announce that we are resuming in-person bands and lessons at the school. Before we get any further we want to make it very clear that we are still offering virtual lessons, and plan on offering them on a permanent basis. Every family has different circumstances and we encourage you to do what’s best for your family.

STL Rock School has prepared stricter guidelines than those set out by the CDC and Missouri Department of Health. If we find that either organization changes their guidelines, we will be sure to follow them. First an foremost, we are all in this together and we need to rely on each other to keep one another safe. By sending your child to STL Rock School, you are verifying that your child is not displaying any COVID-like symptoms. In the event that your child does exhibit symptoms, you will not send your child and will immediately notify STL Rock School to help stop the spread.

Staff responsibilities:

-Will be temperature checked upon arrival
-Clean all contact surfaces
-Wiping down room between lessons
-Cleaning and circulating only clean instruments
-Maintaining social distancing behind Plexiglas divider
-Must wear a mask at all times

Student responsibilities:

Students must have their own instruments INCLUDING MICROPHONES. If you do not own a microphone, the school will be have microphone packs available for purchase
-Must wash or sanitize hands upon entry
-Must wear a mask at all times
-Students must maintain social distancing between themselves and instructor
-If a family uses commercial travel such as flight or train to travel to a hot spot state, that student must remain virtual for 14 days or show a negative test to enter the school
-Students in other high contact activities are asked to remain virtual

Kidzrock Changes (Ages 4-6):

-Limit class size to 3 kids (drums, guitar, keys) so students can be spread out
-No welcoming drum
-Stay on 1 instrument during the duration of each class (as opposed to switching halfway through)
-Rotate instruments every week instead
-Rotate instruments so there’s a 2-3 day gap between classes that it’s used in

School Changes:

-Only students are allowed in the school. We ask that parents wait outside to talk to the office if they would like to talk in person
-By limiting the school to students and staff, STL Rock School will be tracking all foot traffic in the school. In the event of a positive test, we will have contact tracing available and the school will be shut down immediately.
-Groups will be limited to 5 students
-No common area foods/activities will be available
-Lessons will end a few minutes early to ensure that everything is cleaned before the next lesson
-Breaks will be in band rooms or outside
**Concerts are definitely in flux right now due to everything going on. The current plan is to allow parents only to small shows in the school, but we will certainly be exploring in-person shows if possible.

Failure to abide by these rules will result in immediate termination of all activities, and a permanent ban from STL Rock School. This has been done already this summer.
