Rock University COVID-19 Update


Dear Rock U Family,


As you may already know, Governor Herbert has announced a closure of all K-12 Utah schools amid the Coronavirus outbreak for two weeks, beginning this Monday, March 16th. Here at Rock University, we are committed to the safety, health, and peace of mind of our students, families, and instructors. In line with this decision, Rock University will be switching from in-person lessons to online video lessons over the duration of this closure. It is important that we continue to provide our students with their regular musical instruction during this time, but we must take the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of this virus and keep everyone safe. All lessons will continue as regularly scheduled during their usual time slots but will be conducted via Skype on your computer or mobile device instead of in-person


**Please follow the instructions below to download the Skype app on your computer or mobile phone and add your instructor to your Skype contacts. With over 300 students at Rock University, it is imperative that each student completes these steps in Skype so our instructors and staff can more easily coordinate and run these lessons. Any families that have failed to set up their Skype account and add their instructor to their contacts by Monday, March 16th at 10:00 AM will be contacted and instructed to do so.


1. Click this link to download the app:

2. Once you have downloaded Skype, open the app and type your instructor's email or first and last name in the search bar and click Search Skype. When the contact is displayed, click Add to Contacts, and send a Skype message to your instructor so they can accept the request and easily reach your student for their lesson:
