We are excited to share with you how we will reopen our doors for in person instruction.
Please take the time to read this entire post and contact Headmaster Stalloch directly by email at email@example.com with any questions. As guidelines and regulations continue to be updated, this post will be updated to reflect how we are in compliance.
We understand that it is a lot of information, but it is very important that you familiarize yourself with all of this information.
We are pleased to be a professional service that provides instruction which improves our members health, awareness, personal safety, self confidence, self esteem, self awareness, and mental and emotional well-being.

Questions and Answers
SECTION ONE: NY FORWARD SAFETY PLAN
From New York State's Department of Health:
"Each business or entity, including those that have designated as essential under Empire State Development's Essential Business Guidance, must develop a written Safety Plan outlining how its workplace will prevent the spread of COVID-19."
We have a written SAFETY PLAN on file at our location, 8382 Seneca Turnpike, New Hartford, NY 13413.
Some of the specifics of this plan can be found below because you will need to follow these protocols in order to enter the building and participate in your assigned session.
SECTION TWO: SCHEDULE TO RETURN
In order to meet social distancing and density reduction guidelines, students will have an assigned in-person session once per week.
We have safety protocols in place that will need to followed.
The process for entering the building, participating in your assigned session, and exiting the building can be found below in section three.
For any student who does not feel comfortable returning for their available in person session, we will continue to provide instruction through our members only section.
The schedule is designed to prioritize rank and age considerations. Therefore, this schedule takes precedence over the convenience of family members of different ranks and ages being able to train on the same day and in the same time slot.
The schedule below is going to be "phased in"; meaning, we are posting the full schedule now, but we will not be bringing everyone back all at once. We will notify you by email when you should start to follow this schedule. It is being posted now in its entirety so that you may start to anticipate your assigned session day and time.
In the future, when regulations and health considerations permit, we will expand this schedule and flexibility. But for now, there will be one opportunity per week to attend,
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are posting the entire schedule now. However, DO NOT attend until you receive an email from Headmaster Stalloch informing you that you may do so.
