Parisian Beauty Academy Paul Mitchell Partner School is closely monitoring the latest updates and developments regarding COVID-19, a respiratory illness causing flu-like symptoms. As a campus, we are following CDC and New Jersey Health Department guidelines.
With the exception of more extreme disinfecting practices throughout the building, there are currently no changes to our normal routines and activities, and we hope not to make such changes. Any update to that situation will be posted on Parisian’s website, and we will update that as soon as any need arises.
Any contagious disease in an open society can spread, and without creating panic, we should continue taking sensible steps to protect our health and safety. This is a rapidly changing situation and, rest assured, we are continually assessing it. The first step is to make sure we know as much as we can about the illness, how to avoid areas of higher risk, and what to do if we, or someone we know begin to exhibit symptoms. Being informed will also help calm any anxiety you may be feeling. We are carefully monitoring our sources for information about the spread of this virus, and you can do the same by checking into the following websites, which contain good, solid information:
Additionally, you will find more information below in the related links section.
We urge you all to take whatever important steps are available to safeguard your health, and the health of those around you. Most important, if you feel sick, do not come to school. You’re not doing yourself or anyone any favors if you fight through illness and show up at school with a fever or persistent cough. Other steps include washing your hands frequently with soap and water & covering your mouth when you sneeze with either a tissue or the inside of your elbow. We will make sure that soap dispensers and hand sanitizer dispensers are continually stocked in all our bathrooms.
Should the need arise for Parisian to make any adjustments to our educational processes, we will do so with the following goals in mind: helping us continue to deliver on our educational mission while keeping our community safe. We have been in discussions with NJ State Board to explore how we would manage a situation in which instruction moves from classroom to on-line, either to accommodate
individual students who cannot come to school for some reason, or on a broader scale.
We feel it is in everyone’s best interest for us to think about establishing ways for Future Professionals to continue to make progress and faculty to continue to teach, just in case.
We’d like to emphasize that every element recommended here represents good, common-sense health and hygiene. As the situation evolves, we will keep you informed and make whatever adjustments we need to make, in order to protect our collective wellbeing.
