BMC 2020-21 Safety Protocols

As we begin to welcome people onto the BMC campus we have established a set of protocols to ensure the safety of our students, their families, our faculty, our staff, and all visitors.

First and Foremost: As members of the BMC community we share responsibility for each others’ safety. We expect all staff, faculty, and families to take responsibility for actions outside the BMC that might impact our interactions at the BMC. By engaging in BMC activities you are committing to complying with Vermont state travel and quarantine guidelines, and to avoiding socializing with any extended group of people in a way that increases our risk of exposure or makes contact tracing more challenging.

When you plan to visit our campus you need to know the following:

  • Our priority is the safety of students, faculty and staff
  • In keeping with state and local guidelines for schools:
    • Please stay at home if you are not feeling well
    • You are required to wear a mask
    • Please wait outside the building until your lesson time.
      • Make sure the person at the front desk sees that you have arrived!
  • You will have your temperature taken and then  sign in
    • If your temperature is 100.4 or higher you cannot stay on the campus
      • We will take your temperature only once to minimize risk to our staff
      • Please bear in mind that being out in a hot car, the hot sun or exerting yourself heavily can temporarily elevate your temperature.  Take this into consideration when you are planning to be at the BMC.
  •  Once in the building you will be directed in a one way traffic pattern – and the first stop will be to wash your hands.
  • As you leave you will sign out
  • Parents/Caregivers: There is no indoor waiting area.  At this point you may not enter the building for your child’s lessons.
    • There are some picnic tables and chairs available out behind the building in the shade where you can perch!
    • Parents/Caregivers may enter for registrations and payments but not stay indoors.
  • Please do not leave your car idling in the parking lot

Additional protocols may apply to particular situations but all will follow the general state and federal guidelines.

Please contact the office staff with your questions prior to arriving!
