Student Guidelines

For the health and safety of students and staff, we have made some changes to our operations. Please note the following:

Indoor classrooms: Surfaces and shared materials will be cleaned in between each class.  Hand sanitizer will be available in the Astellas Atrium and in each classroom. You will be required to use hand sanitizer when entering the building and classrooms.

Masks: In accordance with state guidelines, students and instructors must wear a mask securely over both their nose and mouth at all times for the duration of all indoor classes. Should you need to take a break for a drink or snack, kindly step outside or into the hallway to do so. Long classes will have pre-scheduled breaks. Masks are required for outdoor classes when a social distance of 6 feet is not possible. The Garden will not provide a mask; please bring your own.

Capacity: All classes have a capacity limit to ensure students will be seated 6 feet apart.

Parking/Garden entrance: Upon arrival, all cars must stop at the Gatehouse and show a printed copy of your class confirmation or display it on your smartphone. Unless you require accessible parking, please park in lots 5 or 6.

Learning Center access: The Learning Center is open only to those who have registered for a class. Upon arrival for each class session, please show a printed copy of your confirmation or display it on your smartphone. You must enter through the main entrance to the Learning Center. 

Timing: Plan to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of your class.

Services will be limited: Bring your own water or a bottle to fill, as there is no access to drinking fountains. Touchless water dispensers will be available. We cannot ensure that chairs, tables, and other common surface areas are sanitized at all times. Please act accordingly.
