Summer 2020

Welcome to summer 2020! Despite the best efforts of covid-19, the summer goes on!

Covid 19 Update: June camps at the Holter will be limited to 10 participants per camp. Each participant will work with their own supplies (provided) and each student is asked to come with a protective mask.  Updates will be posted as virus restriction information becomes available.

  • Holter staff is increasing our disinfection practices. In our spaces we will be wiping down all surfaces (including armrests, railings, door handles, sink faucets, etc) with disinfectant before and after classes.
  • All students will have their temperature read with a medical grade thermometer at the beginning of the day.
  • All students attending class will wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, as a group activity before each class. Hand sanitizer will also be available. We will also remind them to avoid touching their faces with unwashed hands, and to always cover their mouth and nose properly when they cough or sneeze. They will wash before we start, before and after break and before they leave.
  • End of week sharing/performances will be changed to accommodate either social distancing for the audience or will be recorded and shown via youtube.
