We're continuing Music Together Online this fall! Join us for weekly musical fun in the "Zoom Room," and for additional live and pre-recorded content to keep you singing and dancing all week long. A virtual community of family music-makers awaits!

2020 Health Policy for Music Together of Portland

We ask for your help in keeping all the members of our musical community healthy by following these protocols. Our classes may have immune-compromised individuals (including people who are pregnant) who may be more susceptible to viral respiratory infections, including influenza and COVID-19, so your vigilance and adherence to this health policy is extremely important. Our teachers reserve the right to send a family home from class if they feel these sickness protocols are not being followed.

Contact us with your questions about this health policy or our plans for responding to COVID-19 at julie@musictogether-pdx.com .

Classroom Cleaning Protocols

  • All instruments distributed during class will be disinfected between classes and at the end of the day with hospital-grade sanitizing disinfectant.
  • Classroom surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized daily.
  • Some instruments and props may be taken out of circulation.
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes will be available for use during class.

Family Health Protocols

  • We ask that all adults and children wash their hands before and after class for at least 20 seconds. (Sing the "Hello Song" to all the members of your family; that'll be at least 20 seconds!) Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for this.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow. Afterwards, wash your hands or use the provided hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes.
  • We will avoid hand-holding, high-fives, or patty-cake with other families in class.

Illness Policy

  • If you or your child is sick, please stay home until you are fully recovered. If you or your child has a fever, you must be fever-free for at least 24 hours (without the assistance of fever-reducing medication) before returning to class.
  • If you or your child becomes ill with something contagious after you were in class, please contact us immediately.

Schedule a Make-up!

  • We have a 2-class make-up policy per semester, so please keep that in mind, and schedule a make-up class for those you may miss due to illness.
  • If circumstances warrant more flexibility, we will allow families an additional make-up class in the current semester, if available, or to carry make-ups over to another semester.
