Partial Reopening Plan

Malee’s School will be partially reopening on Monday, July 6. Here is what current and new students need to know.

Schedule

Online classes will continue on Tuesday and Friday evenings.

In-school daytime and evening classes will be on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

We have been conducting private lessons during this time. If anyone is interested in either online or in-school private lessons, please get in touch with us.

Check out the class schedule here. We will reevaluate this schedule at the end of July.

Safety Measures

The state of Connecticut has provided reopening guidelines for businesses such as ours. You can check them out here.

The safety measures required by the state and additional measures we are taking are as follows:

  • All people entering the school must wear a mask covering their mouth and nose and maintain a distance of 6 feet from each other at all times. We encourage everyone to buy or make a reusable mask made for sports activities, which are more comfortable and easier to breathe in than N95 masks or disposable masks. Here’s one brand you can check out. Many of us have bought from this company already and can attest to their quality.
  • Only students may enter the school. Children taking class can be accompanied to the entrance by their parent/guardian/etc. There will be no seating for observers.
  • We are working on setting up CCTV cameras so parents can securely watch their children take classes. Stay tuned!
  • Parents and guardians, please communicate with your children the importance of maintaining social distancing during class for the protection of their families and other students’ families.
  • All people entering the building will have their temperature read by a non-contact infrared thermometer. NCITs work quickly (within a second or two) and can be used without making physical contact.
  • We will have a separate entrance and exit. The entrance will be the usual side door, while the exit will be the front door, which we will make more easily accessible.
  • Hand sanitizers will be available at the entrance.
  • In-school classes will be separated by 5 minutes, rather than one following the other.
  • There will be no water cooler. Please bring your own water!
  • Please do not attend class if you are ill, particularly if you have any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • We will disinfect door handles and surfaces at the end of each day.
