Safe Sanctuaries policy

The Northern Kentucky School of Music of Immanuel (NKYSM) is committed to providing a "safe sanctuary" for children and persons of all ages to experience music education. We have established policies that protect this environment. We commit to compliance on our part and expect it from those who entrust their children to us.

  1. All students under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by an adult (other than the instructor) over the age of 18, who will remain in the immediate vicinity with a visual contact of the student and instructor during the private lesson.
  2. All classes and lessons will be taught in rooms with windows, or the doors will remain open during lessons.
  3. All NKYSM instructors will have yearly background checks and will comply with the guidelines for "Screening and Hiring of Paid Staff" as specified in our policy.

If you would like to have a full copy of our policy, please contact Toni Sheffer, NKYSM Director:

Snow policy
  • If serious weather conditions occur, a decision to close will be published by email, website, phone messages, and/or TV stations by 2:00 pm.
  • Variables to be considered:
    • Whether sidewalks and parking lots can be cleared of snow/ice before traffic flow arrives.
    • Whether an authorized staff member is available to secure the building at closing.
  • Check our website at or call (859) 341-8555 after 2:00 pm.
  • Cancellations of schools will not determine our closings as the variables are quite different.
Parking policy
  • Free parking is available in our parking lots.
  • Please do not park in designated handicap spots unless you have an appropriate permit.
  • At Immanuel UMC in Lakeside Park, please refrain from parking on Arcadia Ave, as this is residential street parking.
