Newark Arts High School Pathway to Theater Productions Resumes After 18 Month COVID-19 Pandemic ‘Intermission’
Mar 28, 2022
Principal Devonne Gorman and Arts High School Drama Instructor Ms. Elena Dones welcomed the community back to in-person theater productions with its first drama production since the COVID-19 pandemic not only shut down the first school of the visual and performing arts in the nation but all schools, in New Jersey, back in March 2020.
The government-ordered school shutdown aimed to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
All Newark Public Schools resumed in-person instruction last fall 2021, but in early January 2022, Superintendent Roger Leon ordered district schools to switch back to online learning for a while because of an upsurge in COVID infections in Newark.
