For the health and safety of our community, PCM follows the guidance and protocols of federal, state, and local public health agencies. Given the nature of COVID-19, this guidance is subject to change.
While staff and faculty working on campus are still required to be fully vaccinated; effective Monday, August 29, vaccination will no longer be required for PCM students and caregivers.
As always, PCM considers the guidance of local, state, and federal public health agencies as well as best practices adopted in local schools and peer organizations. As such, we continue to strongly recommend indoor masking while on campus and, although it is no longer a requirement, we encourage all eligible students to be vaccinated, and all members of the PCM community to receive any boosters for which they are eligible.
Some instructors may opt to continue requiring masks in their studios. PCM fully supports their decision in this matter. Please be sure to check with your instructor if you plan on not wearing a mask at your lessons beginning Monday, March 21.
Additionally, masks are still required for all audience members at indoor student recitals (students do not need to wear masks while performing).
For students who prefer a virtual format, we will continue to provide excellent instruction for remote learners.
