Grays Harbor College is pushing Spring Quarter back a week.
In an update to their schedule, GHC has announced that they are adjusting a number of things within the local college in response to the current shutdown of in-person learning and the concern of the statewide emergency.
In their announcement they say that Spring quarter classes are now going to begin April 20, “allowing the week of April 13-17 to be used for students to prepare for the remote delivery of classes”.
“At this time, there are no known cases of COVID-19 on campus. The College is taking proactive and thoughtful action to safely conduct operations and ensure students continue learning and receive needed support services. Certain hands-on machine-dependent and health-related programs will continue to meet in person using social distancing for safety. ”
Additional information will be coming to students as spring quarter approaches.
The college will remain closed to the public, but some staff are still working either remotely and some on campus.
Registration is open for anyone looking to attend classes.
Latest updates from Grays Harbor College:
Tuesday (3/17) is the last day that the College (including Aberdeen, Raymond and Ilwaco sites) will be open to students and the public on our regular schedule until at least April 24, 2020. Faculty and staff will continue to be available through email, phone, Canvas, and in some cases, using other communication tools as well.
Please know that over the next few weeks we will be developing new procedures for many of the items above and other processes that are important to student success. Many of those new processes will be outlined in an FAQ page linked to this page in the coming days. Please check the FAQ frequently as it will be updated regularly when new information becomes available.
