Dear Colleagues,
As you know, we are all continuing to work through the complexities of the pandemic and concerns about the current Omicron surge. In light of this and given the concerns we have heard from many of you, we are adjusting the first two weeks of the semester (Jan. 18 – 28) to deliver most instruction remotely.
Some health careers, career and technical education and lab courses with a required hands-on component may continue to be taught in person. Division Deans will work with faculty to determine the appropriate mode of instruction for their courses during these first two weeks and provide guidance on how to communicate changes to students prior to their first day of class.
The College plans to resume offering most classes in their originally scheduled format during the week of Jan. 31. By this time, we will be prepared to roll out a plan for responsive shifts to remote instruction as needed.
The College will remain open during this period of remote instruction (Jan. 18 – 28), and in-person services will be available to students Monday through Thursday and virtually on Fridays.
Supervisors may allow staff to work remotely up to two days per week if operational needs of the department allow.
We are committed to creating a safe learning and working environment while minimizing disruptions in learning. We recognize individuals have varying degrees of comfort, and we appreciate your collaboration and support as we implement plans to safely proceed to support students in reaching their educational goals this semester and beyond.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
