“Safe & Sound” – COVID-19 Response Update
The health and safety of our entire OrKidstra family continues to be our priority during the developing situation surrounding the COVID-19/novel coronavirus pandemic. In 2021-22, OrKidstra will introduce a hybrid approach as we move towards a gradual and safe return to making music together. We’ve taken the time to listen to our students and families, to trusted public health officials, and to our community leaders. Together, we’ve created a hybrid “Safe & Sound” approach for our 15th season that includes both online (OrKidstra @ Home) and some in-person activities starting this fall.
In the short video below, Ms. Tina and Ms. Keanna will walk you through our “Safe & Sound” hybrid approach for 2021-22.
We will continue to provide you with regular updates about our plans moving forward using the most up-to-date and reliable information available. Thank you to all our students, families, teachers, volunteers, staff, and supporters for playing your part!
Parents and guardians, please check your email for updates from OrKidstra. For additional questions regarding programming, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage everyone to continue following advice from public health agencies and other trusted sources. Take good care ♥
