From the desk of Operations Director Melanie Meador

Staff, students and guests,

In the light of recent events regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), The Salon Professional Academy of San Antonio is vigilantly working hard to ensure the health and safety of all who enter The Academy.

We are continually staying abreast of the communications delivered by the CDC, local, state and federal agencies along with the accrediting and government entities that oversee The Academy.

As of today, March 13, The Academy plans to remain open unless local, state or federal agencies call for mandated closures. In the event of an unexpected closure, a plan will be made for continuity of education. The Academy is not distance education approved so alternative or temporary plans will be put in place according to the information and guidelines given by our overseeing agencies.

Our normal day-to-day training and protocols are based off textbook lessons of infection control which require universal precautions, sterilization and sanitations before, during and after each service utilizing CDC recommended disinfecting agents. This, along with proper personal care of frequent hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer, is encouraged.

The Academy has posted CDC signs with guidelines and recommendations throughout the school. We ask that any staff, student or guest that has confirmed exposure to the Coronavirus through travel or close contact please refrain from exposing others. Anyone showing signs or symptoms of the virus including fever or cough please take precautions and avoid entering The Academy.

As new information comes our way, please stayed tuned to The Academy’s website blog, TSPA SA public and TSPA SA student Facebook page, e-mails, texts and Academy door postings for any further guidelines and precautions. The health and safety of everyone is of the utmost importance to The Salon Professional Academy of San Antonio.

Thank you,

Melanie Meador
