Dear BLKK students and families,

The past two years have been extremely challenging to say the least as we navigated through this covid pandemic together. Numerous families have suffered on many levels both physically and emotionally. We have done our very best to ensure the safety of our students, families and staff at all times, and we will continue to do so. A special thank you to our martial arts families for all of your understanding and support.

With that being said, the CDC, DESE, and MIAA recently lifted mask mandates. Therefore, effective immediately, we are going mask “optional“ for all students and staff members and for all classes.  We must realize that every student and family will approach the wearing or not wearing of masks differently, and it is important that we respect each other’s personal decision. Everyone may take this new guidance at their own pace as well.   However, it is strongly recommended by the medical authorities that those who are unvaccinated or have a medical condition that warrants wearing a mask, continue to do so. 

 If you are 5 days out of quarantine, you must continue to wear a mask for an additional five days. Please continue to notify me of any positive COVID case of a current student so we can contact trace, and notify other students. If a student is considered a close contact or is not feeling well, please let us know immediately as well.

Again, thank you for all your support!

Respect in Kenpo,

Professor Bob Lynn, Jr. , BS Kudan, Bob Lynn’s Kenpo Karate
