Northwest College Campus Open for 1st Day of Classes
Written by Andrew-Rossi on August 19, 2020
It’s back to school at Northwest College.
Today is the first day for classes for the Fall 2020 semester, but also the first since the campus closed last spring during the pandemic. The college has been preparing for this reopening for months, keeping students abridged of their plans and progress. Their reopening plan includes precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, while also being as disruption-resistant to student learning as possible. On that note, courses will be hybridized for the fall. Both in-person and online classes will be utilized.
All students and employees are required to wear face coverings, maintain social distances, and limit their in-person gatherings while on campus. This applies to all campus guests as well. All the buildings on campus are open, but all the entrances are not. Signage on the buildings will notate which entrances are open, and everyone is highly encouraged to use the hand-sanitizing stations at every entrance any time they enter a building.
These plans are firm but also a bit flexible. The goal is to gradually transition into different guidelines, either more relaxed or more restrictive, as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses. This will determine how Northwest College operates as the semester progresses. But the ultimate goal is to ensure the safest, highest quality experience for the student body.
