Myriad Music & Dance Covid-19 Safety Measures

We continue to offer on-site lessons and virtual options for our students. On-site availability for classes with multiple children is limited.  All of our classes are boutique-sized, featuring a low teacher-student ratio.

Our #1 guiding principal is simply that our school remains a safe place for students and teachers, with all protocol and training properly in place. We continue to monitor well-established County Directives, in alignment with the San Mateo County Health Department, San Mateo’s Environmental Health Services, Department of Public Health, Policy & Planning, the City of San Mateo, and our local School Districts.

Continuing to keep our community safe.

  • 100% of our Teachers & Staff are fully vaccinated and boosted.
  • On-Site Classes or Virtual Options are available.  Families have a choice. On-site availability for classes with multiple children will be limited due to smaller class sizes.

School Safety Protocol

Cleanliness & Health

  • 100% of our Teachers & Staff are fully vaccinated and boosted.
  • DAILY HOME WELLNESS CHECKS – PARENT RESPONSIBILITY. Parents are required to do a family wellness check before leaving their home to bring their child(ren) to school to ensure that all members of the family do not have symptoms related to COVID-19 and do not have a fever.

  • Any teacher or child with a temperature of 100.4 or over will not be able to participate in on-site classes. For the safety of the entire community, we will be going by the results of our thermometer, despite what the child’s temperature may have been before leaving home.This also applies to any teacher or child exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Hand-sanitation supplies are provided both in the lobbies and in the classrooms.
  • Medical-grade air purifiers are in each classroom and lobby area. These MedifyX are the same air-filtration systems employed in local pediatric dentist offices.
  • Thorough sanitation for all surfaces / writing implements / instruments / chairs / barres, dance floor, etc with CDC approved disinfectants is completed between lessons & classes.
  • Height adjustable sneeze guards are available for use in all private lesson classrooms, between teacher and student.
  • Hand washing / sanitizing is encouraged before and after classes.
  • Staff and students continue to wear masks.
  • In addition to our in-house sanitizing protocol, our professional deep-cleaning service provider is on-site weekly.

Physical Distancing

  • We have assigned designated entrances and exits for classes. Those students waiting for their class to begin will wait outside with their families.
  • Limit your time in the school. Wait outside until your class time. Students are in the building 5 minutes before their lesson time and 5 minutes after their lesson time.
  • 5 minute max for indoor seating with safe distancing. Unlimited time for outdoor seating with safe distancing. Give your fellow schoolmates space.
  • Limit family members who are not registered for classes from entering the building unnecessarily, for everyone’s safety.
  • Small music & dance class sizes always at Myriad! That is just one way we consistently deliver quality assurance.

Contact Free

  • Remember to bring your own materials each week, so you don’t have to borrow school books and supplies. Bring your own, labelled personal water bottle to class.
