SPRING UPDATES: COVID-19

To our dear Victoria families - just a quick update to let you know that we are pausing our Spring Maracas semester.   Please keep singing and dancing, keep well, and laugh as much as you can with your kidlets -  we miss you!

Please check this space for updates, and we hope you'll stay in touch.

All registrations have been credited - please contact the Centre where you are registered for further details.

 

 

 
Now what?

First off......did you know that singing together is an immune-booster?  At home, on the beach, out for a drive or a walk...making music every day with those you love is important for so many reasons, now more than ever.  

As things are changing in our world day-to-day, please check this space about changes in our Spring Maracas schedule - we will post any information as we receive it.  Please check below regarding our Health and Sanitation protocols, in place for many years and as relevant today as always.  More soon!

 
CLASSROOM WELLNESS

Keeping our classrooms as healthy as possible has always been our priority, and we couldn't do it without you!

Here's what we do:  Since 2005 Music Together Victoria has been using Benefect Botanical Disinfectant  (and now Benefect Decon-30) on every instrument, after each use between classes (including the Play Along box!).  Please find more information about this non-toxic powerhouse bacteriacide and virucide HERE.   It is extremely important to us that we balance germ-killing with non-toxicity.   We also wash/sanitize our hands before and during class ourselves; our Rec Centre partners also assist by cleaning high-touch surfaces in our shared space frequently.

What families can do:  We will as always have hand sanitizer and tissues in class, and require all class participants wash their hands or use sanitizer before and after classes - these measures are the best way to keep everyone healthy and minimize the sharing of germs.

If you are your child are ill, please stay home and get well -

there will be UNLIMITED MAKEUPS available for the Spring Maracas semester.
