Requirements for In-Person Instruction, Group Classes, and Ensembles

    • Students currently enrolled in in-person instruction including private lessons, group classes, and ensembles MUST use Colburn’s testing program and receive a negative test result prior to entering the teaching space—whether that be indoors or outdoors. Please be sure to arrive on campus with enough time to complete a test and receive your results. At a minimum, students should take a test administered at Colburn once a week. Should a student wish to test more than once a week at Colburn, that is possible.
    • Ensembles with wind and brass can now rehearse indoors. Brass and wind players may remove their masks only when playing – they must put their mask back on when not playing. All other instruments must wear a mask at all times. All students must get tested before each ensemble rehearsal.
    • Any student or faculty member displaying symptoms of COVID should not come to campus. All existing protocols remain in place; visitors to campus must wear masks, observe social distancing, and wash their hands frequently.
    • If lesson instruction or classes occur at a time when on-site testing is not available, students may come to campus if free of COVID symptoms and may test after their lesson or class.
    • Parents who wish to accompany their students to their lesson(s) or classes must be vaccinated and must be boosted within two weeks of eligibility for a booster shot.
    • Students who have recently contracted COVID must provide a negative test prior to their first day of in person instruction to cspa@colburnschool.edu.
