Studio West is STILL going STRONG!
The Studio West program may look and feel a little different but we are ready to make some lemonade out of these lemons! We have all had to make some adjustments due to Covid-19 and our program is no different. As the county and school board continue to finalize the overall plans for the upcoming school year, the Studio West directors and board members are working diligently to prepare the information, plan and presentation for all of Studio West.
Please continue to be patient with us as we too are waiting on information and direction. Please check this website, your emails and our social media for any updates. Thank you!!
INFORMATION FROM OUR DIRECTOR ABOUT THE CURRENT COVID-19 SITUATION WITH STUDIO WEST:
Hello Studio West Family,
We hope you are all well and enjoying the summer. We know you are likely wondering what the upcoming year will look like in Studio West, so we wanted to reach out to give you some updates and information. We will continue to update your family as we learn more.
Many of you have likely heard by now that all overnight field trips, including our planned trips to New York City and Disney World, have been cancelled for the 2020 – 2021 school year due to COVID-19. In addition, we have also had to cancel this year’s Welcome Camp due to the current COVID-19 guidelines. We know many of you will be heartbroken at this news, but please be assured that we will still plan to have our Kick-Off Tie-Dye Party and Parent Retreat on Saturday, August 15th, 2020. More information regarding these events will be released in the coming weeks.
The Georgia Thespian Society has also made the decision to move all of their events and conferences to digital platforms for the 2020-2021 school year. This means that our beloved Georgia Thespian Conference (ThesCon) will be held virtually instead of in Columbus Georgia. Georgia Thespians have assured us that they will maintain the spirit and fun of the conference even though we will not be able to gather as a group.
To quote Georgia Thespians—
“This show must go on! We are determined to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our Chapter. While we’ll miss being together in person this school year, we’re excited to seize this moment for new opportunities. Theatre has always been a refuge through uncertain times. Georgia Thespians will bring the theatre education community together and celebrate the students who shine in their art.”
The directors of Studio West will continue to work to provide you with the best year possible despite our circumstances, and we know each and every one of you will make the best of our situation as well. We’ve provided an FAQ regarding the current COVID Guidelines as they pertain to our program, and encourage you to check our website, www.studiowestwfhs.com, regularly for updates. We are so excited to take advantage of this strange time to create unique art together and will strive to adapt to any challenges that lie ahead.
We love you and can’t wait to see you all in just a few short weeks!
Mrs. Lindvall and Mrs. Stern
