The West Forsyth Titans and students across the state are on a two-week break from school to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The news came on Saturday when Governor Roy Cooper issued an executive order suspending school from Monday, March 16, to March 30, as well as halting mass gatherings of 100 people or more. Amid these developments, school activities have seen several important changes.

Spring sports, including all practices, workouts and games, have been canceled or rescheduled. Unless otherwise directed by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, these sports will resume on April 6.

In addition to sports, all extracurricular activities, including clubs meetings, service projects, and performances such as plays and music concerts, have been canceled. This rule also applies to any school-sponsored field trips.

Originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4, West’s prom has now been rescheduled for Friday, May 22. This event will still be held at the Millennium Center in downtown Winston-Salem.

With classes and assignments moving to online platforms, WS/FCS Department of Technology Services is providing internet hotspots and mobile devices for students in need of internet access to keep up with school work. If you are in need of this opportunity, I’ve condensed a link that will lead to a Google form for requesting internet access and/or a mobile device: https://tinyurl.com/teo8xlu

Go Titans!
