Here's a note to Studio Academy staff that was also copied directly to me, from board chairwoman Sue Foster:
We all know the past few days the Rochester Post Bulletin has printed
articles that are not too favorable for the school.
Please be reassured that the board is fighting and will continue to fight.
We have Sen. Carla Nelson who is fighting hard for the school as is our
We are by NO means shutting down and we will not leave our students hanging
on so to speak as was mentioned in one of the articles the last couple days.
The board is fighting for the students and staff and the school. We have
avenues to go and we are researching all of them.
If the students want to talk I trust that each of you will allow this as I
feel this is very important for the students as well as for each of us.
Staff, please share this will your classes as well as the parents.
