Dear Homeschool Music Co-op Family,
The leadership of our co-op continues working to make the best decision for our student musicians. Please read the following information closely.
We are pleased to offer all three choir and both band classes for the 2022-2023 school year. We are excited to have everyone back and hopeful for an uneventful school year. However, we feel it necessary to inform families that we will need to be flexible. Our plan is to start the school year as normal, but please understand that we will need to comply with any local ordinances or protocols put in place by our host churches. That being said, if you register your student for any classes and then decide to drop the class due to COVID protocol requirements, we will be unable to refund tuition monies. We are not doing this as a punitive measure, but simply because the expenses for the year are incurred mostly on the front-end when we have a student count (director salaries, music purchases, uniform expenses, insurance payments, etc.) If the possibility of instituting health and safety measures as directed by local authorities would be cause for you to not participate, we simply wanted to let you know on the front-end so you could make an informed decision for your family. We hope you will all join us, but certainly understand if you decide it’s not best for your family at this time. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
It will be incumbent on families to monitor the health of their students and family members. Please do not send students to class if they have had a fever, cough, or exhibited any other symptoms. In addition, if there is reason to presume a positive case due to exposure to the virus, please keep your student home until a negative result can be confirmed. We understand that means there will be more absences this semester, but it is the only way we can ensure that classes can continue throughout the semester.
We are confident that we can still provide a quality music education. However, it will require much patience and grace from everyone involved. We will hold all our plans loosely, as we may be required to make changes along the way. If changes are required, we will notify parents via email, social media, and the website. We will be placing all of this information and post any updates on the website so that there is a central place for parents to access the most up-to-date information.
We thank you for joining with us to provide a music education for our children. And we thank you for your understanding. No matter what it looks like, we are looking forward to another great semester and we can’t wait to get started. Come join us!
