Covid Update April 2, 2021

The Vaccines are here!  Many States have begun to open immunization appointments for the general population.  At the same time, Covid variants with greater transmission rates have been on the rise, and various countries and regions have seen increases in cases.  

The school continues to follow federal, state and county regulations closely as well as CDC requirements and recommendations.  Following is an update in regards to the school’s policy on vaccinations, and quarantines after air travel. 

General protocol:  For the foreseeable future, we will be doing what we’ve learned how to do over the last year:  Running socially distant programs safely:

  • Encouraging everyone who comes to a program to lower their exposure level starting 10 days prior to program. 
  • Encouraging traveling alone by car and only allowing carpooling in extenuating circumstances. 
  • Requesting quarantine after air travel.
  • Asking people to arrive prepared and avoid local business to minimize local spread.

Please take a look at our existing Covid Protocol

The School’s Solidarity Statement

(Released 7/9/20)

In this time when a health pandemic sits as the backdrop to a mighty upsurge of action and awareness around the centuries of violent oppression of Black, Brown, Indigenous and other People of Color -- our hearts and minds are with the grief and anger for the ongoing suffering of marginalized and oppressed people. The call to dismantle the systems of oppression this country was founded upon has echoed for generations, and our hope is that the time has finally come for structural change.
