COVID-19 Policy

Dear Painted Pot/ClayHouse families,

The year 2020 brings many challenges and uncertainties with it. We would like you to know that our in person programming, is conducted in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the State of New York. Our efforts to create a safe environment for you and/or your children include (but not limited to) physical distancing, improved hygiene practices, active monitoring of COVID -19 symptoms, and enforcement of use of masks. Please read our COVID policies as listed on this website.  Please understand  though, that a 100% strict adherence to those guidelines is nearly impossible, especially when working with children! We want to ensure you, however, that all reasonable measures are being taken, as we try to mitigate the risk(s) associated with operating in times of a global pandemic. Safety first is our top priority for 2020.

With that said, we are operating in an unprecedented, uncharted territory with many unknown variables. State / City mandated closures , or new guidelines roll out, can occur at any time, with very short notice. We may be forced to change our program, or even shut it down completely.

In the event that we are forced to shut down operation, All registration sales are final; no refunds or credit will be issued. In the event that we have to change or adjust our program, we will resume our classes online.
Your cooperation is paramount to a successful 2020. Together, we can create an enjoyable, unforgettable and safe year for you and your children.

THE PAINTED POT/CLAYHOUSE BROOKLYN
