Stone Branch School of Arts Announcement from the Director:
To all our friends and families during this time of Covid-19
We hope you and those you love are well!
Over the past weeks, we have been reflecting on how thankful we are for our Stone Branch Community. From sending thoughtful emails, engaging with information on our online programming and letting us know your care and commitment are there. You provide us with valuable support and encouragement. You fuel our creative energy and enable us to remain dedicated to providing inspiring classes/camps and content moving forward. We thank you for your patience during this time
while we have worked on setting up our online course presence. There has been a lot of new ground to our small staff has had to cover to make sure we are able to make our students' online experience the best we can provide.
Our Summer Camps
This summer we are offering camps with some modifications as necessary. Camps scheduled in June and July will be Online Camps. We are committed to providing the same high quality instruction as always just in a little different format. We have reduced our youth (7-10 year old) camps from full day to am/pm half day. We have adjusted Regular Camp hours to 10-3pm. We feel we can provide a rich camp experience for your child
We are all adjusting to daily life where health and safety take precedence. We hope you understand that we hold very dear the time and connection we make with our students, be it camp or regular classes. Distance learning is not the optimal for us or your student and we wish we could provide a better solution but we are sure we can provide enriching, inspiring , fun time virtually. We are feeling hopeful that we will be able to resume in-person classes with accommodations for student/teacher safety.
Like all of us, we ache to get back to a place where we can be together in person. We are looking ahead to the Fall and , hopefully, the resumption of in person classes. We are monitoring the guidances of the State of Maryland and Montgomery County and will make all necessary accommodations to reopen our studio. We will endeavor to keep you informed and provide timely updates.
We thank you all for your faith and patience. We wish you well and hope to see you soon.
