In-Person Classes

September 14 - December 19, 2020

 

Online enrollment for most classes is closed, however some classes may still allow late enrollment. Please call 816-531-4022 to inquire.

 

KCYA is pleased to announce that we will re-open for IN-PERSON classes beginning the week of Monday, September 28th! We will continuously monitor the situation and make additional decisions when necessary, to keep our students safe. In the meantime, it is important to highlight these protocols:

 

  • Everyone wears a facemask at all times.
  • Everyone answers health questions before entering the building.
  • Everyone gets their temperature taken and hands sanitized at entry to the building.
  • No parents/guardians or person other than the student will be allowed into KCYA.
  • Students with cold or cough symptoms should stay home.

 

View all the Reopening Protocols – your help with these allows us to meet together in person as safely as possible.

 


 

               

 

We are working diligently to keep well informed of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, and our priority is keeping you, your familes, our teaching artists, and staff safe. Our decision to hold class In-Person will be based on specific data points, including but not limited, to the increasing/decreasing number of cases over a two-week period and the percentage of positive tests in our community. If it is decided we can not safely meet in person, all "In Person" Classes will be held virtually (via Zoom).
