Rainbow Songs Fall Term – Outdoor & Zoom Classes

Hey friends, we’re so proud of you! It’s been a tough five months, but we worked together to keep each other safe.

Toronto (as well as the rest of Ontario) has now moved to to Stage Three, allowing larger groups to gather together, and music classes to restart.

While the good weather holds, Rainbow Songs has decided to hold some classes outdoors. We will be using a number of parks and green spaces around the city. This means we’re able to sing together safely.

(In case of rainy days, we’ll hold classes instead on Zoom. The office will make this call early in the morning, and notify all class participants.)

In addition to outdoor classes, we’ll continue to hold some regular weekly classes on Zoom only, for families that prefer this format.

Enrollment is open, and you can sign up now. We look forward to singing with you this Fall!

Safety protocols for outdoor classes

  • Families in outdoor classes should bring a blanket or yoga mat to sit on. Throughout our classes, we’ll all stay 2m apart from each other. Teachers will not touch your children.
  • Since we are outdoors and observing physical distancing, masks are not required (although you may of course wear one if you prefer)
  • Your teacher will take attendance and make note of the name of the adult attending with children enrolled each week.
  • Classes will still include a jam session! However, we will not be sharing instruments, for safety. Please bring instruments of your own*** to use for this component. (Helpful hint – you can quickly make a shaker out of Tupperware and Cheerios!)
  • If you, your child, or someone with whom you have had close contact tests positive for Covid-19 at any point throughout the term, notify us immediately. If this happens, we’ll let the rest of your child’s classmates know. We will also move your class to Zoom for two weeks
  • Other policies may be set by specific locations
  • Our safety policy will be adjusted as needed, at the direction of Toronto Public Health

Your teacher will go over these protocols with you in your first class. Feel free to reach out to our office (info@rainbowsongs.com, 416-535-5247) if you have any questions.
