Learners may need adult supervision if using play dough, modelling clay or craft materials. Since parents know their child best, some parents may prefer to alter the manner in which their child participates in an activity. Please assess your child’s abilities to enjoy the class and participate safely. Play-dough may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction if ingested in those sensitive to wheat gluten or with Celiac disease. Only enrolled students shall be on camera. Adults will need to stay off-camera during class for student comfort and privacy reasons.
