COVID Safety

We will be following all CDC Guidelines during classes including social distancing when possible, extra cleanliness, and masking throughout the entire day. Your student's compliance is required. If a student is not masked, they will not be able to participate in class and will be sent home.  We will, of course, constantly revisit this requirement throughout the 2021-2022 School Year and make adjustments as needed.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

The expiration of the masking order in Ohio does NOT apply to educational settings like CSC's acting classes and masks are still required.
