I will always wear a mask before and during each lesson.
Social distancing will be practiced, as permitted and necessary.
Students and parents will meet me outside of home, school, or work.
Students will be required to use provided hand sanitizer immediately upon entering the vehicle.
All surfaces of the driver and passenger area will be cleaned before and after each lesson.
