Coronavirus Update June 8 – CBBC Staff And Students

Dear staff and students:

Although the coronavirus pandemic continues to have an unprecedented effect on daily life, we are now able to look forward to the future and a return to normalcy. On June 15th CBBC Career College will begin a gradual reopening of all campuses and salons following the approach highlighted below.

As you return to school, you’ll notice various changes in the way our campuses and salons look as well as new practices and protocols. We understand these changes may be difficult and we are here to support you. Please take the time to review the attached COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines implemented by CBBC Career College. Our goal is to collaboratively ensure you feel safe and secure so together we can navigate the complexities of our “new normal.”
