Dear WCA families,

Thank you for your ongoing support and the confidence you have placed in West Chester Academy to provide enrichment through the arts. We believe that kids need the arts and the normalcy of coming to class now more than ever. It is very rewarding for us to see our students growing and thriving in spite of the challenging situation we find ourselves in.

We consider it a great responsibility to navigate this ever-changing situation as it relates to Covid 19, ensuring that our protocols reflect our commitment to prioritizing the health and safety of all of our families. Since the beginning of the pandemic, WCA has provided clear communication and real-time decision-making. This has allowed us to offer continuous programming while providing consistent access to the benefits of enriching classes such as physical fitness, creative outlets, social-emotional health, and mental wellness.

We make all of our Covid-related decisions based on a variety of inputs, including local and national sources, as well as industry and studio data.  Our current safety measures include:

Students

Parents

Faculty and staff

Teachers and staff wear masks in common areas and also during instructional time, except where not feasible or prudent to do so. Adjust class times slightly to allow for taking one class out to connect with their parents and pick up the next class that is waiting in the lobby.

Facility preparedness

We will continue monitoring the situation week by week and will make you aware of any changes. We understand this message will cause relief for some and disappointment for others. Some will think it's too much and others may think it's not enough. This is the nature of the times we live in. But, it's also in our nature to adapt and to support each other. Our kids are mirrors of our reactions and emotions, so let's focus on what's positive! Thank YOU for your support!
