Colds are an unavoidable nuisance to everyone, however when working in a close environment with numerous children, it is incredibly easy to pass illnesses to parents, students, and faculty. The Tone Academy has a strict policy to cancel class if a faculty member is ill so as not to needlessly expose our community. This policy also pertains to parents and students – please do not attend class if you or your child is ill.

If a student is visibly ill, they will be sent home and counted as an  absence. In order to avoid as many illnesses as we can, please make use of the hand sanitizers provided in each classroom.

Tone Academy also adheres to the NYC Department of Education regulations in regard to head lice. Per their standards, children found to have live head lice will be excluded from school and not allowed to return until they are lice-free. Students will be reexamined in 14 days to confirm that they have remained lice-free.
