IMPORTANT UPDATE
Dear TPAC Families and Friends,

I hope that you are all well and staying safe during this unprecedented time in our lives.  We are living in a historic moment. As such, please be assured that we are making the best decisions we can on a daily (and sometimes hourly) basis for our students and our employees. We are devastated by what these turn of events mean for our community and we are mustering up all of our strength to remain hopeful and optimistic. Thank you for bearing with us as we do our best to serve you during this unexpected global emergency.

To that end, based on current information and recommendations available as of March 16, 2020, we have made the following updates to our COVID-19 response:

Effective Monday, March 16, studio programs and activities will be suspended at least through Thursday, April 9 to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and encourage social distancing and to slow the pace of transmission of the virus.

  • We will follow the schools in shifting our attention from traditional content delivery to online engagement opportunities for students. More to come in the coming days!
  • We will also continue to follow the lead of the MA Department of Public Health and Sudbury Board of Health as to when it is safe for local schools to re-open for classes.
  • We have contingency plans in place and fully intend to deliver all classes/programming when it is safe to do so. As a small business, this will be critical to our health as an organization. Your sticking with us, "into the unknown", is a gift for which we can never thank you enough!

While there are many uncertainties in this time, here is something I do know for certain from 22 years of teaching: TPAC will be better and stronger on the other side, largely in part due to an incredible staff of educators and administrative pros, and because of our amazing studio family. Your support means everything right now. Thank you!

With much appreciation,

Samantha Bower
