Spring ’22 Update: Face-to-Face Lecture Classes are Virtual January 31 – February 21

The health and safety of our students and employees are our main priority.  Due to COVID-19 illnesses and prescribed quarantines due to exposure, the College is experiencing operational challenges.  Like many other institutions in the State, the College has determined it is necessary to give our employees time to make their health a priority, before returning to onsite work to serve our students.

Due to this,
all face-to-face lecture classes will be taught virtually from January 31 – February 21*.  On February 22, Face-to-face lecture classes will resume in-person and employees will return to onsite work

Please note, public safety, workforce programs and hard-to-convert-labs will proceed Face-to-Face as originally planned, unless otherwise indicated.   

How Does This Decision Impact Employees?
Employees should refer to the January 19, 2022 correspondence from Assistant Superintendent/Vice President of Human Resource Services or contact their supervisor for guidance.
