KEEP OUR CAMPUS SAFE

We know we can’t be a 100% risk free environment, no public place can be…but we can certainly ensure the MAXIMUM % by following these practices correctly:

  • If you get tested for COVID19, STAY OFF CAMPUS UNTIL YOU GET YOUR NEGATIVE RESULT (positive results require medical release before returning)

  • WEAR YOUR MASK over mouth and NOSE. Especially when you can’t social distance (services and in some classroom exercises).

  • Maintain social distances around each other whenever possible 

  • WASH your hands often. Disinfect surfaces you share with others.

Thank you everyone! We know it’s a hard road ahead. PROTECT EACH OTHER.

7/1:

If/When we have new cases of positive COVID-19 campus exposure reported to us, FERPA and HIPAA privacy regulations prohibit us from sharing any details about the individual involved. With this in mind and because most people, (while here), travel around to various areas on our campus, public restrooms, etc, the assumption should be that exposure was a possibility.

6/24: We are returning to face masks as MANDATORY at all times while on campus for all Staff, Students and visiting Clients

6/15/2020: Face Masks are still Mandatory for Students and Clients while “In service”. Otherwise, the wearing of face masks will be optional for all. We advise wearing face masks anytime proper distancing is not optimal. Our normal cleaning and disinfecting protocols will be in place.

5/26/2020: The Campus is open for public service visits. NOTE: Face masks are mandatory for everyone while on campus (there may be some services that require the removal of your face mask for a short time but otherwise they must be on to be here). No visitors can accompany you for a service. No one can wait in our lobby areas besides waiting to be picked up for their service. Child services must have an adult accompany them and the adult cannot be in service at the same time. Thank you for your understanding.

5/15/2020: Our Campus is opening for Students on May 18th. The 26th for public Salon Appointments.

DURING THIS TIME IT WILL BE CRUCIAL THAT STUDENTS AND STAFF ARE CHECKING OUR SCHOOL APP REGULARLY FOR COVID-19 RELATED SCHOOL UPDATES. 

Our focus is to safely determine when we can get everything back to normal for everyone.   

• Due to the emerging information on the spread of COVID-19 the school is immediately instituting temporary additional safety operations. 

• These policies will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.  

 Here is the CDC’s website for up to date COVID-19 information: https://cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

4/24/2020: Idaho’s Governor has released the 4-stage State re-opening plan. We are currently building our plans to re-open based off of these stages and will alert our Staff, Students and Salon clients as we have each stage in place and ready to execute.
