Dear Mountain Top families:

As you know, SAU 9 (the Conway schools), SAU 13 (Tamworth, Madison and Freedom) and MSAD 72 (Fryeburg and environs) have announced that they will close for the next several weeks in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. Our policy at Mountain Top is to follow the schools’ lead, so we will also close for on-site lessons.

We plan to continue with private lessons via video wherever possible. So that we can work out the remaining details, there will be NO lessons this coming week, March 16 through 20. We’ll teach through the scheduled spring break in April, in order to include the full 18 weeks of spring term lessons. We’ll send more details of our plans as they become available, and will check each family’s ability to receive lessons via the internet.

These are difficult and disruptive times for all of us, but we believe that music can help us weather this crisis with grace and good spirits. We appreciate your support of Mountain Top, and will do everything we can to continue bringing music to you and your family in the coming weeks.

As you are no doubt aware, our planet is on high alert regarding the aggressive spread of coronavirus COVID-19. While there are currently no confirmed cases within Mountain Top’s service area, this virus is easily transmitted in places where people are in close contact; thus, implementation of common-sense preventative measures is appropriate at this time.

What WE are doing at Mountain Top:

  • Cleaning services– Twice weekly Mountain Top utilizes a professional cleaning service for general cleaning. Beginning last week, our cleaners implemented Hospital Grade sanitation of high-touch areas such as door handles, lavatories, etc. In addition to professional cleanings, employees clean door handles, piano keys, and all other shared-touch surfaces/equipment with sanitizing wipes several times daily.
  • Hand washing– employees have been instructed to thoroughly wash hands on an hourly basis while at Mountain Top.
  • Hand sanitizer is available to visitors in the lobby/office area, however, thorough hand washing with soap is more effective at stopping the spread of germs; therefore we ask all visitors to the Center to arrive early enough to utilize either the upstairs or downstairs restroom hand-washing sinks prior to lessons/classes/etc.
  • Daily re-assessment of procedures and policy– Taking guidance from the C.D.C. and W.H.O., Mountain Top is monitoring recommendations on a daily basis and taking appropriate actions. At this time (March 12), we have no immediate plans to cancel any classes, lessons, or events.
  • CDC Guidelines for Large Community Events– All staff and volunteers participating in the 24 Hours of Music Event on April 4th/5th(and other scheduled concerts/events) will be trained to adhere to the best practices outlined in the recent CDC “Get Your Mass Gatherings or Large Community Events Ready for Coronavirus Disease” handbook.

  • In concern for general wellbeing, if an individual at a Mountain Top event is observed to be presenting symptoms of illness, they will be respectfully asked to leave the premises.
  • In the event the situation worsens in our area, Mountain Top will determine the postponement, suspension, or cancellation of activities on a case-by-case basis.

What We ask YOU to do:

  • First and Foremost, if you are feeling sick, or if you have reason to believe you may have been exposed to contagion, please refrain from attendance at Mountain Top events (including classes/lessons.) Mountain Top will make up or credit absences related to self-quarantine decisions.
  • Steps you can take to reduce your risk of getting sick from viral respiratory infections and to help prevent transmitting infections to others (As stated by the NHCDC)
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick or who exhibit flu-like symptoms.
  • Stay home from work or school if you have a fever or are not feeling well.
  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands that are visibly soiled.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue and throw away used tissues immediately and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces frequently.

As we continue monitoring the recommendations of local and global health professionals, we are also investigating various methods of using technology to deliver certain components of our work. Music is a comfort in times of uncertainty, isolation, or crisis. We at Mountain Top will continue doing all we can to be a steady, healing, and joyful presence in the community – through whatever responsible, creative means we can devise at this time of great concern for the health of our neighbors and selves.

NEW ORDERING SYSTEM!

The green “CONCERT SCHEDULE AND RESERVATIONS” button on this page will take you to a schedule of concerts. There is no need to sign in to view the schedule, but when you click “Add to Cart” to reserve seats, you will be asked to sign in with a user ID and password. If you have bought a concert ticket in the last several years, that info was emailed to you on or around April 26, 2018. If you have misplaced your info, click on “Forgot” and enter the primary email for your household (the one that receives concert directions and/or invoices from Mt Top). That address will then receive an email with your credentials (you may have to check your spam).  You can also call our office between 10 and 5  Monday through Thursday and we will give you your information. If you are a new user (never registered for a lesson, purchased a concert ticket, or recently donated to Mountain Top), you must create an account in order to purchase a concert ticket. You will receive email confirmation of your payment.
