We’ve seen a lot of questions about our Covid-19 protocols. We will follow all Lincoln/Lancaster County directed health measures as required. With the new mask mandate update taking effect this Thursday, we will require all students and teachers to wear a mask. Additionally, we maintain small class sizes of no more than 1:10 teacher to student ratio. We sanitize between classes and students will be escorted to wash their hands prior to the beginning of each class. Please reach out if you have any questions and stay healthy. Thanks!
