COVID-19 Preventions & Precautions

A Note from FlowerSchool

FlowerSchool has instituted new guidelines and structures to better serve you and keep everyone safe while at the school. It is our primary goal to have everyone to feel safe and secure, so we are taking many measures and following state and local government guidelines. Below are the precautions and guidelines we follow to protect our students and staff while at FlowerSchool.

A New Space

FlowerSchool has recently moved to a brand new space at 253 West 28th Street, 7th Floor. We are the first occupants of this brand new floor, which offers 2000 sq ft of workspace. This space also has a never used before HVAC system keeping the air recycled, clean and moving throughout the space for extra airflow.

For continued assurance, we are continuing to limit our class sizes to 12 students, which allows each student to have over well over 10ft of distance between one another while working.

Preventative Measures
