With the developing COVID cases around the county, beginning this fall semester, WCM will be returning to requiring face coverings for employees, students, and families. These policies mirror the practices from last year.

All employees at WCM are required to wear face coverings in all public areas and when with students.

Families, students, and non-employees are required to wear masks in public spaces where they will interact and share space with other individuals. These public spaces include WCM hallways, bathrooms, and waiting rooms. WCM faculty and staff will continue the practice of sanitizing the facilities and studio spaces. Please also use hand sanitizers or wash your hands before you enter a studio for your instruction as many students share instruments and equipment for their lessons.

We highly encourage you to wear your masks at WCM, including in your lessons with your teachers to ensure your safety and the safety of others. Please consult with your instructor to learn about their individual studio expectations and to discuss any specific questions that you may have, such as safety measures related to your instrument.

Please note that these policies are in place regardless of vaccination status.

Thank you for your time and understanding as we navigate through this ever-changing landscape.
