‘Still alive and thriving’: how SVVSD drama programs have endured the COVID storm

Despite social distancing and COVID-related regulations, drama program students and teachers in St. Vrain Valley School District continue to work closely together.

When COVID first hit in March, in-person instruction moved online, impacting students across the board. For those involved in the arts, hybrid and online learning has taken an added toll as they took a step back from rehearsing and performing.

However, through tapping into their creativity, high schools in SVVSD continued to muscle through the pandemic to provide and create art, according to Janay Bird, SVVSD’s fine arts coordinator.
