Dear Greenwich House Music School community,

Due to the rapidly evolving and complex situation around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to temporarily close Greenwich House Music School. The building will close today, Friday, March 13 at 9 pm until further notice. We are also cancelling GHMS outreach programs at our local public schools and senior centers.

Even though, we do not have a report of infection within the Greenwich House community. We are closing out of an abundance of caution for our students, families, faculty, and staff at a time when city and state officials are universally recommending social distancing and limiting movement around New York City.

We can, however, utilize a variety of media to stay virtually connected and provide some continuity with music education and community engagement. At this moment in time, we are planning the following:

· Private lessons will be scheduled by faculty with their students through remote learning options such as Zoom, Facetime, or Skype. Your teacher will be in touch with you individually about how these will proceed.

· For our Music, Art & Play students, we will establish ways for them to communicate with their teachers and connect to online learning and arts resources.

· Stay connected to each other through our social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram.

GHMS continues to follow the recommendations provided by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), the New York City Department of Education, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are carefully monitoring developments, and we will be issuing e-mail and website updates as necessary. At the very least, by April 1, we will re-evaluate the situation and reach back out to you with further information.

We ask that you please be patient with us during this time as we move to remote learning. This is all new territory for us. We are trying to keep all of our part-time staff and faculty on payroll during this shutdown. For this reason, we will be in touch at a later date regarding any credits and make-ups. If you have questions or concerns about this situation, please contact us at I sincerely hope these measures allow our community the space it needs to get the outbreak under control. I look forward to welcoming you back as soon as this crisis is over.

Stay healthy and be well.
