Covid-19: REALM Response

While COVID19 continues to disrupt life here in Los Angeles, the REALM is committed to keeping our kids, families, and community safe. Now more than ever, helping with your child’s education during this extraordinarily challenging time is our number one priority.

Covid-19 Safety Protocols at The REALM

The REALM has decided to hold both in person and online classes to support the individual needs of our families.  Our teachers have our full support in choosing to teach online and/or in person and our number one goal is their safety, health and security.  If at any point The REALM believes that the dangers outweigh the benefits of hosting classes in person, we will convert all classes to online experiences.

While we were a little hesitant at first at how well wearing masks and being unable to hug (we realmer’s are a huggie bunch) would work, our Summer Camp was INCREDIBLE. Our kids are so resiliant, adaptable and joyful.  It has been such a delight to to see them all, even in this limited way.   We have adapted to a whole new level of clean throughout the center and are all fond of washing our hands…constantly! We have been fortunate to be 100% Covid free thus far!

For more specific guidelines on the measures that we have taken to support the health and well being of our community, check out The REALM COVID-19 Safety Protocols (It’s a very exciting read 🙂  We are also following best practices as outlined by:

Building Character During COVID – 19

Right now, our kids are learning amazing lessons in resilience, fortitude, flexibility and humanity. If they pick up a little math along the way, that is great. 🙂 Stay connected, be calm, embrace the moment.
