Dear Parents and Families, 

We have written to your student with some important news. Due to the ongoing health concerns posed by novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of the Arts’ spring break has been extended by one week. It will continue through Sunday, March 22. We will continue to monitor the impact and spread of COVID-19 in the Philadelphia area. For your reference, the email that was sent to your student is included below. 

I know that you have entrusted us with the health and well-being of your student, and this trust is what has guided us in making this difficult but necessary decision. We will continue to send updates to your student via UArts email, UArts Alerts and the online Campus Safety Guide

Thank you in advance for your help and your understanding.  


David Yager
President and CEO
