For many months we’ve been working on our plan for occupying our offices and teaching students face-to-face again after the pandemic wanes. Every member of staff has been consulted and involved in planning to work on site again. We’ve concluded that a gradual increase in face to face services at our offices would start at the end of July and culminate with us welcoming students back for in-person teaching on September 7. Then, COVID threw everyone a curve ball in the form of the Delta variant which is many times more transmissible.
So we’re now in the process of listening carefully to public health authorities and likely will need to delay our public opening some weeks or longer. We know our community is longing to return to the power and interactivity of face-to-face learning: and so are we.
We can’t tell you how disappointed we are about having to do this but the health and safety of our staff, our students and our community is our highest priority, and with case numbers again rising in The Bay Area, we know this pause is necessary.
We continue to offer all our classes online led by all your favorite LightHouse instructors and specialists. As the situation changes, we will keep you updated. For now, we have everything crossed that we’ll see you sometime in the Fall.
