We are excited to welcome students back in person this fall through our new hybrid model.

We appreciate and respect that many of our families have varying opinions based on individual circumstances. Our priority was to create a plan that allowed both in-person and virtual options when possible to allow all families to continue participation in a way they felt most comfortable. We will continue to do everything we can to support our students, families, faculty, and staff needs, keep safety a priority, adapt to new ways of learning, provide quality arts education and other engaging opportunities through the various pandemic phases, and look to a better future. We will communicate modifications to this plan as we strive to improve our offerings and experiences and stay up-to-date with changing requirements and guidelines along the way.

Like many organizations, we have faced many challenges and tough decisions in response to an unexpected global health pandemic. This has not been easy for anyone, but we feel fortunate to have a loyal, supportive community #keepingthejoy of MSA alive. Although we are not back to 100% in-person training, we look forward to the time when it is safe to do so.

“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.”
