May 30, 2020
To all our valued customers, students, parents, and friends:
We are pleased to announce that The Center of Music and Art will be reopening for business on Monday, June 1st, 2020 at 10:00am. While we will continue to offer private lessons and group classes as we have for the past 30 years, we will also be adhering to the strict guidelines currently set in place by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. You may view these guidelines here.
Teachers will be in contact with students soon to discuss schedules for resuming lessons. Some changes to our schedule may be necessary to ensure proper time and effort can be spent on sanitizing our facility, and we will provide details on any schedule changes as they take place. Please know that we will be taking every step possible to ensure a clean, safe environment for all of our customers and students. As such, we are unable to allow students or customers into the business if they are feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms of the virus. Likewise, no staff members will be allowed to work if they are ill.
The safety and protection of all of our customers remains our top priority, and we will do everything possible to safeguard and protect the members of our community. We are grateful for the nearly thirty years of patronage and support we have received from everyone in the Ohio Valley, and we intend to continue serving the needs of our community for many years to come.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our policies, please feel free to contact us at 740-264-3111. As we all struggle through these uncertain times, we are eager to cooperate with our customers, health officials, and government to ensure and protect the health and safety of everyone we serve.
