With all of the uncertainty regarding the status of COVID 19 we understand that many of you are probably wondering what school will look like come August. We wanted to assure you that we have the leadership of TCAA studying this very closely.
This past May, TCAA’s Interim CEO, Dr. Thomson and TCAA’s Interim Superintendent, Dr. Vaughan, assembled a team of experts to review the research, data and guidelines from various education and fine arts organizations to extract best practices and ideas. In addition, Dr. Thomson and Dr. Vaughan are awaiting guidance regarding school operations from State Commissioner Morath at the Texas Education Agency.
Once all information has been collected and a direction has been decided we will announce on this site and through other forms of telecommunication, how our school will move forward to ensure the health and safety for all. This will include guidelines for curriculum instruction, school activities, employees, students, parents and all who are involved with our organization. We appreciate your patience and support as we navigate these unprecedented times.
TCAA always recommends our community members follow CDC and public health guidelines, which are similar to what is recommended during cold and flu season, including:
Our facilities and janatorial staff have increased their efforts to deep clean our campuses and conservatory spaces, including focused sanitization of touch points such as handrails, door handles, common spaces, common area seating and tables, etc. While no students or staff are on campus, this helps us ensure that when we are able to return, we come back to a safe and clean space for all.
We take the health and safety of our TCAA family seriously. There will be many questions and challenges that we will need to resolve together during this unprecedented situation. We will continue our efforts and implement new procedures and guidelines as warranted. We appreciate the work of our faculty and staff as they prepare to protect our campus and assist our students to complete the semester successfully.
