FAC Weekly Update

September 18, 2020

Good morning, Fine Arts Center Family!

I hope you had a wonderful week. Our students and faculty did a fabulous job adjusting to the first full week of Attendance Plan 2. You can feel things starting to progress towards normalcy, and it is a pleasure to have our students back in the building on a more regular basis!

Here is the latest from the halls of the Fine Arts Center...

This Week's Student Leadership Lesson

Don't Take Anything Personally

Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally…Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.

Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements they have in their own minds…

-Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

Building Hours - Attendance Plans 1 and 2

Building access at 7:45 a.m.

9:15 a.m. Classes

Building access at 8:30 a.m.

1:30 p.m. Classes

Building access at 1:15 p.m.

  • Should these restrictions result in a hardship to your family relative to the parent’s ability to get to work on time, please call our Main Office. Before doing so, we respectfully request that you attempt to work out a resolution with your workplace. If no compromise can be found, we can accept a very limited number of students before the above building access times.

  • If you have not done so, please read the emails and letters that I sent home. Many students who arrived at the wrong time, either in the morning or afternoon, had received my emails but had not read them. Students are sent the emails and therefore should get in the habit of staying informed.

  • Students who attend the FAC in the afternoon and go to Wade Hampton in the morning need to stay at Wade Hampton until 1:15 p.m. Dr. Grant has space for these students to sit, socially distanced, and work on homework. We do not have such a space at the FAC.

  • Studio Time is not available to students while we are under social distancing restrictions.

As always, please call or email with any questions!
