The district is following state guidelines regarding the performing arts to ensure a safe learning environment. Westport’s teachers and administration are committed to providing art and music performances and events to the greatest extent possible during the 2020-2021 school year regardless of whether students are learning in school, at home or a combination of both. We are working on innovative solutions to allow students to share their creativity, talent and achievements.
