Dear Schilling-Douglas School Community,
It is my pleasure to inform our community that the school has received temporary approval to use distance education to continue the delivery of our programs.

Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020, the school will temporarily transition to distance education for all programs and students. On-site classes will remain in session until 9pm today, March 18, 2020. The facility will also remain open until 9pm today to allow all students and staff to use this time to gather all texts, materials and supplies you will need to participate in the distance education program.

*** In order to participate in the school’s distance program you must sign a “Notice of Temporary Distance Education”. Forms are available at the school today. If you are unable to complete the form in person, please contact the school and one will be emailed to you. ****

If you have any questions please contact your instructor or the Associate Director.

The school office will remain open during this transition and we will respond to requests for information as quickly as possible.

I would like to personally thank you for your patience as we make this transition.

Please stay safe during this time and we hope to see you all back very soon.
Sincerely,

Dear Schilling-Douglas School Community,
As the global outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, the Schilling-Douglas School of Hair Design is taking steps to prepare for transmission into our community. The safety and well-being of our community is of the utmost importance to us.

At this time we are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and state and local authorities in taking extra safety measures at our school. We have implemented a service waiver regarding the Coronavirus in the student salon, which informs guest will not be able to service them if they pose a potential health risk. We also have increased the frequency of sanitation within the facility.

As we continue with this effort, we would like to remind all staff and students what we can all do NOW to help stop the spread of this disease.

  • If you don’t feel well, please stay home.
  • If you observe someone in the school who appears sick or if you have any reason to suspect that you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus or have a presumptive positive test for the virus, please notify the school immediately.
  • Wash your hands often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds or an alcohol based hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Practice social distancing- whenever possible do not sit or stand directly next to others
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash – or use the bend of your elbow
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid shaking hands

We are asking all staff and students who are planning to or have recently traveled outside of the country or to a community that is effected by the virus to notify the school office. As part of our preparedness plan, you may be asked to self-quarantine for a minimum of 14 days prior to returning to school, if symptom free.

For Students:
The school is currently reviewing its leave of absence policy and Satisfactory Academic Policy in order to take into account absences directly related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In the event the school must close temporality due to the virus, please be assured that all student enrollment periods will be extended by the amount of time of the temporary closure.

The school’s Associate Director has been designated the official contact for notifying the school of travel, travel plans and to report exposure or potential exposure. You may contact the Associate Director at (302)737-5100 ext. 106

Thank you in advance for your continued support in keeping our school safe.
Sincerely,
Victor David
